4 Top Dividend Stocks That Hedge Fund Managers Would Love

Page 1 of 2

Best Dividend Paying Stock Lists By Dividend Yield – Stock, Capital, Investment. At the beginning of each month I screen the market with my best dividend paying stock screening criteria which are listed below.

I believe that it makes sense to observe the market by good valuated long-term growth stocks. For sure many of the results are lucky strikes, companies that have had an extraordinary good financial strength and growth due to a fantastic business environment. But the developments are not sustainable.

But sometimes there are new ideas on my list like Herbalife Ltd. (NYSE:HLF) or recently the weapon maker Sturm & Ruger. Those were corporate stocks in special situations with a huge army of short sellers lead by investment guru’s like Bill Ackman.

The best dividend paying stock list is a small compilation with seven tough investing criteria, summarized below. The list includes each month around 20 to 30 results. It’s a quick dividend list (from low-yield to high-yield paying stocks) of stocks with interesting performance and valuation figures. Stocks from that list are mid- and large caps (market capitalization of more than USD 1 billion) with double-digit long-term earnings growth rates. The companies are traded at AMEX, NYSE, NASDAQ and part of the Dow Jones, S&P 500 or Nasdaq Composite. The list is selected by the following criteria and sorted by dividend yield.

My Criteria to find the best dividend stock on the market

Market Capitalization: > 1 Billion
Price/Earnings Ratio: > 0 < 100
Dividend Yield: > 3 < 20
Return on Investment: > 10 < 100
Operating Margin: > 10 < 100
10 Year Revenue Growth: > 8 < 200
10 Year EPS Growth: > 10 < 100

28 companies are part of the best dividend paying stock list for October 2013. The top pick is still Southern Copper, a commodity based stock with a double-digit dividend yield. 8 additional stocks have a dividend yield over 5 percent and fourteen got a buy or better rating by brokerage firms.
