My 3 Favorites from the Best Dividend Paying Stock List April 2013

Growth solves many problems but it could also create some when its not productive. Within the investment scene, growth is a wonderful item for wealth creating. I personally like growth stocks especially when they pay good dividends and the board let grow them too. But growth is not an easy solution. A company creates only values, if it grows with a higher profitability: When the return on investments are high enough, shareholders will benefit from the company’s successful expansion too.

On the first day of each month I create a quick dividend list (from low-yield to high-yield paying stocks) of stocks with interesting performance and valuation figures. Stocks from that list are mid- and large caps (market capitalization of more than USD1 billion) with double-digit long-term earnings growth rates. The companies are traded at AMEX, NYSE, Nasdaq and part of the Dow Jones, S&P 500 or Nasdaq Composite. The list is selected by the following criteria and sorted by dividend yield.

Market Capitalization: > 1 Billion

Price/Earnings Ratio: > 0< 100

Dividend Yield: > 3< 20

Return on Investment: > 10< 100

Operating Margin: > 10< 100

10 Year Revenue Growth: > 8< 200

10 Year EPS Growth: > 10< 100
