Three Of The Next Big Dividend Stocks?

I've searched around Fooldom and dug up three potential candidates for the next great dividend stock. Let me just say now that dedicated income investors probably won't be too impressed with the yields I've collected here. Normally, I look for yields above or at least approaching 3%. For the purposes of this exercise, I've put a greater emphasis on growth, so I'm willing to settle for a smaller dividend. In theory, as the company grows, so should the dividend yield.

Here are the results:

Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ: ATVI) has a market capitalization of $14.01 billion. The company employs 7,600 people, generates revenues of $4,447.00 million and has a net income of $418.00 million.

Because of these figures, the EBITDA margin is 15.00 percent (operating margin 10.55 percent and the net profit margin finally 9.40 percent).

The total debt representing 0.00 percent of the company’s assets and the total debt in relation to the equity amounts to 0.00 percent. Due to the financial situation, a return on equity of 3.95 percent was realized. Twelve trailing months earnings per share reached a value of $0.64. Last fiscal year, the company paid $0.15 in form of dividends to shareholders.

Here are the price ratios of the company: The P/E ratio is 19.12, Price/Sales 3.15 and Price/Book ratio 1.42. Dividend Yield: 1.35 percent. The beta ratio is 0.60.
