20 Best Yielding Stocks From Europe With Safe Heaven Aspects

Stocks With Best Dividend Yields And Low Beta Ratios From Europe Researched By Dividend Yield - Stock, Capital, Investment. Everybody talks about the euro debt crisis and the expected economic slowdown in Europe. The stock markets within these countries have a really bad performance but this unpopularity gives investors a good opportunity to invest in hidden champions or even to find stocks with attractive valuations.

I screened all stocks with home base in Europe and listing in America by a positive dividend yield as well as a beta ratio of less than 1 (lower volatility than the market). In order to screen only highly liquid stocks, I decided to present only those companies with a market capitalization above USD 10 billion. Twenty stocks remained of which sixteen are recommended to buy.

Here are my favorite stocks:
