Cheapest Dividend Paying Large Caps As of October 2013

Cheap large capitalized stocks with high growth originally published at “long-term-investments.blogspot.com. I always look for stocks with a cheap valuation and modest growth perspectives.

While the interest environment is low, the market valuation is extraordinary high and it’s more important to take care about a solid price in order to ensure not to overpay a stocks.

Each month I create a quick list that allows me to observe the market by the cheapest growth picks. You can find my criteria below.

These are the criteria for my cheapest dividend paying large cap screen:
- Market Capitalization over USD 10 billion
- Expected Earnings per share growth over 10 percent for the next five years
- Forward P/E ratio under 15
- P/S under 1 and P/B ratio under 2
- Positive Dividends

Only fourteen stocks fulfilled these criteria of which twelve have a current buy or better rating by brokerage firms.
