Choosing stocks whose earnings yield is more than double the monthly spot rate of the 20-year high-quality market corporate bonds enhances the likelihood to unearth high-return investments, in my opinion. This category of investment-grade bonds represents corporate loans issued by triple-A, double-A and single-A rated companies.

Since the monthly spot rate of the bonds stands at 2.83% as of July 2020, the following three stocks may hold value, as they offer earnings yields of more than 5.7% at price-earnings ratios of less than 17.7.

General Electric Co

GE, Financial) were trading at $6.15 per unit at close on Monday for a market capitalization of $53.83 billion.
