16 Cheap And High-Yielding Stocks From The S&P 500

S&P 500 stocks with low earnings multiples and high dividends originally published at long-term-investments.blogspot.com. I remember times when the popular S&P 500 index had more than 15 constituents of High-Yields. Today we only got seven!

Yes, market getting more and more expensive. The S&P 500 is up 22.85 percent this year and marked All-Time-Highs. In times when P/E’s of 20+ are the new valuation standard, it’s more important to keep an eye on cheaply priced stocks.

That’s the main reason why I would like to produce a screen from the mainstream index S&P 500 by the cheapest and highest yielding stocks measured with a forward P/E of less than 15 and a dividend yield over 4 percent.

Only sixteen corporate stocks fulfilled these criteria of which five have a buy or better rating. Utilities are the dominating investment category.

Here are my favorite stocks:
