Cheapest Dividend Paying Large Caps As of April 2013


Cheap large capitalized stocks with high growth originally published at “long-term-investments.blogspot.com.

Each month, I make a screen of America’s cheapest dividend paying large capitalized stocks with highest expected growth for the upcoming fiscal year. I want to know what stocks are cheap and which opportunities are available. It’s hard to find real bargains at the market, especially when the market booms and price ratios go up.

My criteria for the cheap large cap screen are: A market capitalization of more than USD 10 billion with expected earnings per share growth of at least 10 percent for the next year. In addition, the P/E ratio should be less than 15 and the P/S and P/B ratio are both under two.

Twelve companies fulfilled these criteria of which eight are recommended to buy. Two of the results have a high yield.

Here are my favorites:
