The Best Yielding Large Cap Dividends With Lowest Debt

Large Capitalized Dividend Stocks With Low Debt To Equity Ratio Researched By Dividend Yield - Stock, Capital, Investment. Debt matters. The higher the debt ratio, the higher the possibility for a dividend cut. On the other hand: If a company has only low debt ratios, there should be some fender to pay stable dividends as well as space to increase dividends over the next years. Depending on the amount of cash and the operating cash flow (EBITDA), an unleveraged company could double its balance sheet in a very short time.

In order to find some opportunities, I screened the market by large capitalized stocks (market capitalization over USD 10 billion) with very low debt to equity ratios of less than 0.1. In addition, the dividend yield should have a nice value of at least two percent. Eleven companies fulfilled the mentioned criteria of which one stock is a high yield; four stocks are recommended to buy.

Here are my favorite stocks:
