8 Predictable Dividend Stocks At Multi-Year Price-To-Book Value Lows

Stocks with a predictable business and historical low P/B ratios originally published at long-term-investments.blogspot.com. Today I would like to use my new gurufocus screener to get new stock ideas. I always hunt for value but I don’t want to add up too much risk in my portfolio.

For sure, there is no free lunch at the market and everybody must accept a fluctuating stock price. But in my view, there are different ways to take risk. Some are natural and others are not calculable risks, created by the company or the environment in which the corporate acts.


Let’s come back to my value stock screener. I would like to try out the Low P/B Companies screener by gurufocus and I’m glad to share the top yielding results with you here.


The screener supports only stocks that have grown sales and earnings over the past decade consistently. They are somehow predictable and high-quality stocks. The screener compares the current P/B ratios with the 10-Year average values of the ratio and plots the top 25 companies with the lowest spreads.


Only eight stocks of the top 25 results have a yield over 2 percent and three of them got a buy or better rating.

Here are the best yielding stocks from the screen:
