20 Stocks with Yields over 10% and Highest Buy Ratings

I love stocks with high dividend yields, but there are only a few with sustainable payments. I think about Altria or Lorillard. Other stocks have a huge potential for a dividend cut, also if they are a Dividend Champion or a stock with a very long dividend growth history. I made this investment mistake with Avon Products. The company was highly leveraged and had some operational problems. Finally it reduced the dividend dramatically.

Most people need stocks with very high yields. I don’t because my private wealth is high enough to catch the dividend payments and live off it. In the past, I often thought it would be the only solution to put all my money into the highest yielding stocks with the most attractive fundamentals. This strategy failed and I lost much money within the closed-end shipping industry. That was a big mistake from which I learned, and I'm sharing this with you.

Please don’t put all your money into one stock or make a single bet on a high-yield stock. This is very risky. That’s all I can say. Do good research and try to avoid an overweighting of any stock or asset theme.

Each month, I make a regular screen about the stocks with the highest dividend yields because I believe there is a lot of valuable information in it for my readers. This month, I would like to show you the 20 most recommended stocks with a double-digit dividend yield and a higher market capitalization (over USD300 million). Out there are 95 companies with a very high yield but only 35 have a buy or better recommendation. The REIT industry is still a big player on my screen with six representatives.

Here are the three biggest stocks from the screen:

Northern Tier Energy (NTI) has a market capitalization of $2.34 billion. The company employs 2,667 people, generates revenue of $4.280 billion and has a net income of $28.30 million.

The EBITDA margin is 10.56 percent (the operating margin is 9.87 percent and the net profit margin 0.66 percent).
