13 Large Cap Financials with High Potential to Boost Dividends

As you might know, I started an article serial about stocks with low dividend payout ratios and small debt figures this month.

These two ratios have a big impact to judge the ability of a corporate to grow at a faster pace and hike dividends in the future.

Today I would like to explore the financial sector for stocks with a less than 20 percent dividend payout ratio and a debt to equity leverage of less than one. Because of the huge amount of results, I will only look at those stocks with a market capitalization over USD 10 billion.

Exactly 13 financial stocks fulfilled these criteria of which one is a high-yield.
