11 Higher Capitalized Dividend Stocks for Less Than $5

Large- and Mid-capitalized Stocks under USD5 Researched by “long-term-investments.blogspot.com.” It is a very stupid asset strategy to buy stocks with a low stock price. Somehow, many people believe that a lower price should allow them to buy more shares and increase the leverage of their investment. In times of margin trading, options, obligations, derivatives and CFDs, there should be a smarter way to increase your investment leverage.

In order to proof what kind of stocks are available for less than USD5 which are not garbage, I made a screen of stocks with a stock price under USD5 with a positive dividend yield and a market capitalization of more than USD2 billion. Eleven companies remained of which three have a double-digit yield and additional three high yields. Five are at least recommended to buy.

Here are my favorite stocks:

Portugal Telecom (PT) has a market capitalization of $4.31 billion. The company employs 72,347 people, generates revenue of $7,913.44 million and has a net income of $544.46 million. The firm’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounts to $2,664.39 million.
