8 High-Return Creating Stocks

When you invest in dividend stocks you need also look at internal return rates. The most popular ratios are return on equity and return on investment.

A company that has a big return on equity and also low debt ratios means that the high ratio was not created by taking debt and boosting earnings. Great for us investors; we own a piece of a high income generating company.

If the company can scale up its sales by taking more debt and issuing new shares, our return could boost. That's also one reason why I look at low debt with good return on equity ratios. If the company also do stock buybacks and hiked dividends, great!

My experience is that no companies fulfill everything. It's no shame when a company suffers and do not meet every optimum value. Each business is volatile and risky.

I've tried to create a screen, based on some return figures. Below are my 8 favorites. At the end of this article, you can find a list with 16 additional stocks.

These are my main criteria:
- Midcap+
- Forward P/E under 15
- Operating Margin over 15 percent
- Debt-to-equity under 1
- Return on Equity 15%+
- Payout half of profits
- Mid-digit Earnigns growth forecasts

8 high return creating stocks, low debt and price ratios included are...

    1. Thanks Asset-Grinder,
      Yes MSFT is a good comapny and I believe that they will come back to their old strengh and find new ways for growth. The latest acquisition of Mojang for $2,5 billion is only the first step which brings the company back to the game..
