Their yields outperform the 20-year high-quality market corporate bonds

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.
