5 Higher Yielding Growth Picks With Acceptable Price Ratios

I've recently published an article about stocks that combined dividends and growth. The article introduced five picks with attractive fundamentals but the yield ratios were really low.

Today I would like to fix this lack by showing you some higher yielding stocks with great earnings growth forecasts. 


In addition, the valuation could not be cheap because of the higher growth rates but they should be acceptable. These are my criteria in detail:

- Dividend Yield - Over 4%
- Payout Ratio - Under 100%
- Sales growth Past 5 years - Over 10%
- EPS growth Past 5 years - Over 10%
- EPS growth next 5 years - Over 10%
- Trailing P/E - Under 25
- Forward P/E - Under 20
