An Overview of the Safest and Best Yielding Large Cap Dividend Stocks

Stocks with low beta ratios are less volatile than the market. If they pay a good yield, could there a better investment? I made a screen of the best yielding large capitalized stocks (over USD10 billion) with a beta ratio of less than 0.5. The ratio summarizes all stocks with a share price performance that represents not more than the half performance of the market.

Exactly 45 companies fulfilled these criteria but only 18 have a yield of more than 4%.
