3 High-Yield Large-Cap Stocks Beat S&P 500 Index Dividends

These stocks are predicted to beat the index's dividend yield again in the upcoming 12 months

November 07, 2019 | About:

Dividend investors may want to consider the following stocks, as they are thrashing the S&P 500 Index in terms of a higher dividend yield. The benchmark for US-listed stocks grants a dividend yield of 1.86% yield as of Wednesday.

Las Vegas Sands

Shares of Las Vegas Sands Corp. (NYSE:LVS), an American operator of resorts in the US and Asia, closed at $63.15 on Wednesday for a market capitalization of $48.5 billion.

Based on the quarterly dividend of 77 cents that Las Vegas Sands will pay on Dec. 26, the stock offers a forward dividend yield of 4.83% and a trailing 12-month dividend yield of 4.85% as of Wednesday.

Also, the company’s current trailing annual dividend yield makes shares of Las Vegas Sands still profitable as it is moderately high compared to its historical value.

The share price is now abundantly over the 30-, 70- and 120-day simple moving average lines after a 21% year to date increase.

The 52-week range is $47.39 to $69.6.

The 14-day relative strength index of 67 suggests the stock is neither overbought nor oversold.

The stock has a price-earnings ratio of 25.67 and a price-sales ratio of 3.57.

GuruFocus assigned a moderate rating of 5 out of 10 for the company's financial strength and a very positive rating of 7 out of 10 for its profitability.

Wall Street issued an overweight recommendation rating for shares of Las Vegas Sands Corp. and established an average price target of $69.19 per share.

Simon Property Group

The second company is Simon Property Group, Inc. (NYSE:SPG). Shares of the Indianapolis-based commercial and retail real estate investment trust and shopping center operator closed at $155.08 on Wednesday for a market capitalization of approximately $47.59 billion.

Based on the $2.10 quarterly cash dividend the company will pay per common share on Nov. 29, the stock grants a 5.37% forward dividend yield and a 5.26% trailing 12-month dividend yield as of Wednesday. The industry has a median of 4.97% for the forward dividend yield and of 5.03% for the trailing 12-month dividend yield.

The below GuruFocus chart illustrates that Simon Property Group’s current trailing annual dividend yield makes shares still profitable as it is near its 10-year high.


The stock price has declined 8% so far this year to below the 120-day simple moving average line. It is still above the 30- and 70-day simple moving average lines.

The 52-week range is $145.28 to $191.49.

The 14-day relative strength index of 56 suggests the stock is neither oversold nor overbought.

The stock has a price-earnings ratio of 20.84 versus the industry median of 17.6 and a price-sales ratio of 8.36 compared to the industry median of 8.03.

GuruFocus assigned a low financial strength rating of 3 out of 10 and a high profitability rating of 8 out of 10.

Wall Street issued an overweight recommendation rating for shares of Simon Property Group and established an average target price of $177.95.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles

Shares of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. (NYSE:FCAU), the Italian-American auto manufacturer, closed at $15.88 per share on Wednesday with a market capitalization of $31.39 billion.

Based on an annual dividend of 1.3 Euros (about $1.44 USD) per common share that Fiat Chrysler paid to its shareholders on May 30 earlier this year, the stock yields 4.59% in terms of both forward dividend and trailing 12-month dividend as of Wednesday.

According to the below chart on the dividend yield history of Fiat Chrysler, the stock still seems to be a profitable investment.


The share price has increased 10% so far this year to far above the 120-, 70- and 30-day simple moving average lines.

The 52-week range is $12.11 to $17.46 per share.

The 14-day relative strength index of 77 suggests the stock is approaching overbought levels.

The stock has a price-earnings ratio of 3.44 and a price-sales ratio of 0.21.

GuruFocus assigned a positive rating of 6 out of 10 for the company's financial strength and for its profitability.

Wall Street issued an overweight recommendation rating for shares of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. and has established an average target price of $16.26.

If somebody asks what being a value investor means, Alberto Abaterusso would answer, “The value investor is not just the possessor of the security that represents the company, but he is the owner of that company. As an owner of the company the value investor is actively involved in the dynamics of that company and his first concern is how to have sales progressively growing. Also, the value investor is probably one of the most demanding persons in the world concerning sales.”
