14 Cheapest Dividend-Paying Large Caps As of March 2013

Some investors say that growth matters and price ratios, too. They are right. If you buy a stock with a low valuation compared to the intrinsic value, you can make a solid return when other investors identify the gap and jump on the stock.

Cheapness could have several causes and can be expressed with many fundamentals. I am focused in my research on classical fundamentals like P/E, P/B and P/S.

Each month, I make a screen of the cheapest, dividend-paying large capitalized stocks with highest expected growth for the upcoming fiscal year. The stocks from the list have a market capitalization of more than $10 billion USD, and earnings per share are expected to grow at least 10% for the next year. Despite the strong growth, they still have a P/E ratio of less than 15 and a P/S and P/B ratio of less than two. Fourteen companies fulfilled the mentioned criteria of which ten stocks have a buy or better recommendation.
