Asia’s Best Yielding Dividend Companies – An Overview

The Best Yielding Asia Stocks At The U.S. Capital Market Researched by Dividend Yield - Stock, Capital, Investment. The growth of the economy is slowing but it seems that we will reach a soft-landing. Recently published forecasts of the economic growth show that the highest GDP growth will be realized in Asia and Latin America. Europe should get a negative growth due to the debt crisis. 

I’ve tried to screen all listed stocks with headquarter in Asia (American Depositary Receipts) by the best yielding stocks. There are 308 Asian companies of which 70 pay dividends. In order to restrict my criteria, I decided to list only stocks with a market capitalization of more than USD 2 billion as well as a dividend yield above 3 percent. Exactly 15 companies remained. 5 of them are high yields and 6 have a buy or better recommendation by brokerage firms.

Here are my favorite stocks:
