15 Large Cap Dividend Stocks With Low Debt I Like In A Low Interest Environment

Large Cap dividend stocks with very low debt and stock beta ratios originally published at long-term-investments.blogspot.com. You know that I also cover stocks with low beta ratios, also mentioned as stocks with a lower correlation to the market.

I’ve published a long list with over 120 stocks about large capitalized stocks with safe haven characteristics. For sure, safe is nothing on an angry sea but I believe these could be some values in my screen.

Today I like to show you the lowest leveraged stocks from the safe haven large cap list with a minimum dividend payout of 1 percent.

That’s not much and the low interest environment also keeps the capital and interest income of the corporates at a low level but I think it’s much easier to boost growth and increase future dividends for a low debt corporation than it would be for a high leveraged company.

Fifteen stocks fulfilled these criteria of which six have a current buy or better rating.

Here are my favorite stocks:
