The Best S&P 500 Dividend Stocks With Single Digit P/E Ratios

S&P 500 Stocks With Best Dividends By Dividend Yield - Stock, Capital, Investment. The S&P 500 index is a popular used tool by investors. Institutional player like big insurance companies or pension funds allocate their portfolio weighting on indices like the Dow Jones Index and Standard & Poor’s 500. The S&P 500 is a free-float capitalization-weighted index published since 1957 by Standard & Poor's, a division of McGraw-Hill Companies. In order to get the best return, investors need to invest in the cheapest stocks of the index.

I screened the index with its 500 companies by the best yielding stocks with single digit P/E ratios. The index has 44 stocks with a very low P/E ratio and the highest yield amounts to 10.27 percent, paid by Pitney Bowes (NYSE:PBI). In order to focus on the best yielding stocks, I decided to select only those stocks with a minimum dividend yield of three percent. Exactly fourteen companies remained of which ten have a buy or better recommendation.
