High Yield Stock List August 2011

The higher the expected return the riskier the asset. This is a common statement made by investors. High yield stocks often hide big loss potential, but a cash yield of more than 10% compensates the risk.

I screened a list of interesting stocks with a dividend yield above 4% (high yield). The list is sorted by dividend yield from highest to lowest yield. The highest rate amounts to 22.2% and the lowest yield amounts 4% due to the selection criteria. As result, 188 companies are part of the high yield list of which 44 have a dividend yield of more than 8%.

Here are my three most promising high yield stocks:

1. American Capital Agency (AGNC) is acting within the residential REIT industry. The company has a market capitalization of USD $5.3 billion, generates revenues in an amount of USD $592.8 million and a net income of USD $509.4 million.
