My Three Favorite Latin America Stocks With Good Dividends And Cheap Valuation

Yesterday I published a list of the best-yielding Asian dividend stocks with a low forward price to earnings ratio. Today I'd like to take a look at stocks in the Latin America region.

It’s a hopeful region to seek for growth. If you have no idea where to find good yields in your own country, you should start to look aboard. But be careful, foreign stocks have higher risks because of the additional currency risk and the small diversified companies.

My criteria are still:

[/b]Market Capitalization over $10 billion USD

Positive Dividend Yield

Forward P/E below 15

Sixteen stocks fulfilled the mentioned criteria of which eight have a current buy or better recommendation.

[b]Here are my favorite stocks:
