6 High-Yield Stocks with Low Debt and Payout Ratio

Stocks with high yields are sometimes risky because they pay dividends in a not sustainable way. A necessary requirement to reduce risks of dividend cuts is the fundamental basis; the company should have low payout ratios and low debt ratios.

In order to find the best high-yield stocks with low debt and payout ratios, I screened the market by stocks with a yield over 5 percent, a debt to equity ratio of less than 0.3 and a payout ratio below 50 percent. Six companies fulfilled these criteria of which two are recommended to buy.

Here are my favorite stocks:

USA Mobility (USMO) has a market capitalization of $284.09 million. The company employs 1,375 people, generates revenues of $242.91 million and has a net income of $88.64 million. The firm’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounts to $84.27 million. Because of these figures, the EBITDA margin is 34.69 percent (operating margin 24.56 percent and the net profit margin finally 36.49 percent).

Financial Analysis: The total debt representing 8.07 percent of the company’s assets and the total debt in relation to the equity amounts to 11.19 percent. Due to the financial situation, a return on equity of 40.58 percent was realized. Twelve trailing months earnings per share reached a value of $2.50. Last fiscal year, the company paid $1.00 in form of dividends to shareholders.

Market Valuation: Here are the price ratios of the company: The P/E ratio is 5.14, P/S ratio 1.17 and P/B ratio 1.12. Dividend Yield: 7.79 percent. The beta ratio is 0.77.

Deer Consumer Products (DEER) has a market capitalization of $102.79 million. The company employs 890 people, generates revenues of $226.75 million and has a net income of $39.81 million. The firm’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounts to $51.19 million. Because of these figures, the EBITDA margin is 22.58 percent (operating margin 21.27 percent and the net profit margin finally 17.55 percent).

Financial Analysis: The total debt representing 0.34 percent of the company’s assets and the total debt in relation to the equity amounts to 0.37 percent. Due to the financial situation, a return on equity of 24.19 percent was realized. Twelve trailing months earnings per share reached a value of $1.18. Last fiscal year, the company paid $0.20 in form of dividends to shareholders.
