8 Large-Cap, High-Yield Stocks Below Book Value

High-yield stocks, companies with a dividend yield of more than five percent, are often an attractive investment class, especially in times of low short-term interest rates. There are 927 stocks with a yield over five percent available at the markets. In order to find some opportunities, I screened the investment category by stocks with a P/B ratio below one and a market capitalization of more than USD10 billion. If you buy a stock below the book value, you get for a dollar of your cash more than a dollar in assets.

Eight companies remained of which four have a double-digit yield. Four stocks are recommended to buy and two have a strong buy rating. All of the results are from the financial and telecom sector.

Here are my favorite stocks:
