Cheapest Dividend Paying Large Caps As of June 2013

Cheap large capitalized stocks with high growth originally published at “long-term-investments.blogspot.com. It's always good to own cheap stocks in order to gain a return. 

For sure, cheapness is a question of definition and in the end its growth that makes a stock cheap or expensive. 

I make each month a screen about the cheapest large capitalized dividend stocks. Below are screening criteria; they are very sternly in my view. I use this screen to find some attractive bargains. In a hot market it's ever hard to find low valuated stocks with great earnings growth perspectives. Especially within the recent months, the number of results decreased rapidly. Let’s look if the recent crisis 5/21 had some positive effects for the screen.

My criteria for the cheap large cap screen are:
- Market Capitalization over USD 10 billion
- Expected Earnings per share growth over 10 percent for the next year.
- P/E ratio under 15
- P/S and P/B ratio under 2
- Positive Dividends

Thirteen companies fulfilled these criteria. It’s exactly one stock less than last month. Two High-Yields are below the results and eight stocks have a current buy or better rating.

Here the results with highest 5Y earnings per share growth:
