16 Cheap Latin America Stocks With Good Dividends

Large capitalized stocks from Latin America with low forward P/E’s and good dividend yields originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". 

Yesterday I published a small list of the best yielding Asian dividend stocks with a low forward price to earnings ratio. Today I like to change the country and go forward with the Latin America region. 

It’s a hopeful region to seek for growth. If you have no idea where to find good yields in your own country, you should start to look aboard. But be careful, foreign stocks have higher risks because of the additional currency risk and the small diversified companies.

My criteria are still:

- Market Capitalization over USD 10 billion
- Positive Dividend Yield
- Forward P/E below 15

Sixteen stocks fulfilled the mentioned criteria of which eight have a current buy or better recommendation.

Here are my favorite stocks:
