14 Cheapest Dividend Paying Large Caps As of March 2013

Cheapest dividend paying large capitalized stocks with highest earnings per share growth; originally published at “long-term-investments.blogspot.comSome investors say that growth matters and price ratios too. They are right. If you buy a stocks with a low valuation compared to the intrinsic value, you can make a solid return when other investors identify the gap and jump on the stock. 

Cheapness could have several reasons and can be expressed with many fundamentals. I am focused in my research on classical fundamentals like P/E, P/B and P/S.

Each month, I make a screen of America’s cheapest dividend paying large capitalized stocks with highest expected growth for the upcoming fiscal year. The stocks from the list have a market capitalization of more than USD 10 billion and earnings per share are expected to grow for at least 10 percent for the next year. Despite the strong growth, they still have a P/E ratio of less than 15 and a P/S and P/B ratio of less than two. Fourteen companies fulfilled the mentioned criteria of which ten stocks have a buy or better recommendation.
