Best Dividend Paying Stocks As Of January 2013 | Top 30 Share Buy List

Best Dividend Paying Stocks Lists By Dividend Yield – Stock, Capital, Investment. Happy new year fellow investors. I hope 2013 will become a great year for our asset allocation. 

Let's start the first post for this year with our regular best dividend paying stock list.

The best equity investment is a stock with good fundamentals and a convincing equity story. If this stock is also attractive valuated it could promise good returns. I’ve tried to summarize some significant fundamentals in order to screen the whole capital markets by interesting dividend stocks. 

Every month I create a quick dividend list (from low-yield to high-yield paying stocks) of stocks with interesting performance and valuation figures. Stocks from that list are mid- and large caps (market capitalization of more than USD 1 billion) with double-digit long-term earnings growth rates. The companies are traded at AMEX, NYSE, NASDAQ and part of the Dow Jones, S&P 500 or Nasdaq Composite. The list is selected by the following criteria and sorted by dividend yield.

Market capitalization: > 1 Billion
Price/Earnings Ratio: > 0 < 100
Dividend Yield: > 3 < 20
Return on investment: > 10 < 100
Operating Margin: > 10 < 100
10 Year Revenue Growth: > 8 < 200
10 Year EPS Growth: > 10 < 100

Here are my most promising stocks from the list:

    I think that these stocks provide investors with a great investment opportunity for 2013 and beyond. These are some of the top dividend paying stocks out there, as they are all in the S&P 500 and/or the Dow Jones Industrials. Furthermore, they are recognized as market leaders in their industries when using market share as an indicator. With the uncertainty in the global economy, and the economic growth in the U.S. gaining steam slowly, dividend paying stocks are a great way to capture some returns. These five companies have high market capitalizations and strong brand recognition, and that is what I like to see when I own a dividend paying stock. I like Pepsico most from the list.

  2. What's your current opinion of VALE? How does it stack up to your screening criteria?
    (I do like RIO.)

  3. RIO and VALE are great soft commodity companies. I would buy them because they are the major players within the sector. But before I do this, I would buy stocks from XOM and CVX maybe COP. Do you own them?

  4. I own both CVX and XOM.
