5 International Bank Shares With Fat Dividends

5 International Banks With Big Fat Dividends By Fool. People invest in small and mid-cap stocks primarily because they offer more share and dividend growth potential than their bigger counterparts do. However, in terms of stability, bigger banks usually have a clear-cut edge over smaller ones, in part because they have a better chance of getting bailed out during difficult times. American banking giants such as JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:JPM) and Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) were bailed out during the financial crisis, and they're now back on track and reporting impressive earnings. Meanwhile, the number of small and regional U.S. banks appearing on the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.'s list of "problem banks" far exceeded the number of large banks.

Let's look at five big banks that offer both income and stability, as well as a chance to help guard your portfolio against unforeseen instability in the domestic markets.

Here are the results:



Banco Santander (NYSE:STD)
Annual dividend yield of 5.50%


HSBC (NYSE:HBC)
Annual dividend yield of 2.90%


Royal Bank of Canada (NYSE:RY)
Annual dividend yield stands at 3.50%


Bank of Nova Scotia (NYSE:BNS)
