18 Stocks with Very High Yields (More Than 10%) and Earnings Growth

Some of my friends search regular for stocks with a very high yield. I don’t talk about high-yields, stocks with yields between 5% to 10%. I mean stocks with annualized dividend yields of more than 10%.

It sounds a bit unserious, and I personally would never buy such stocks. But I can understand my friends because they have only a low net worth, and they try to boost their passive income from dividends.

Let me say one thing: It could not be sustainable for any kind of business to pay such a high amount of money to shareholders at a normal valuation. Something must be wrong. But if you find an attractive investment, you can boost your dividend income and in 10 years your investment is paid off.

Out there are 148 stocks with a yield over 10 percent. I’ve tried to figure out some interesting stocks.

These are my criteria:

- Dividend Yield above 10%

- Earnings per share growth for the next 5Y over 5%

- Market Capitalization over 300 million

Eighteen shares fulfilled these criteria. Seven of them have a current buy or better recommendation.



Here are the 3 most recommended stocks:
