13 Safe Haven Large Caps With Over 3% Dividend Yields

Low volatility dividend stocks with cheap price ratios and top yields originally published at long-term-investments.blogspot.com. On my blog I’ve listed over 100 stocks with safe haven characteristics. For sure no stock is safe and no dividend is guaranteed but there are some shares with a higher risk and bigger volatility which I don’t like. I’m looking for low yielding stocks with solid debt ratios and modest growth perspectives with a proven business model and a long-term dividend growth history.

Today, I produced a screen with the following core criteria:

- Market Capitalization over USD 10 billion
- Debt-to-Equity Ratio below 0.5
- Beta Ratio Below one

In order to get the top yielding results with cheap expected P/E’s, I selected only those stocks with a forward P/E of less than 15 as well as a dividend yield of more than 3 percent. Only thirteen stocks fulfilled my safe haven characteristics of which two are High-Yields and seven are recommended to buy. Many telecoms are part of the results.

The sector is definitely low priced and there is a huge rumor about takeovers. I also have shares of AT&T and Rogers in my Dividend Yield Passive Income Portfolio.

Here are the top yielding stocks from the screening results:
