4 Great Dividend Value Picks From The Old Country

Large cap investors are looking for high liquidly stocks. Most investors think that they offer a better risk profile but the truth is that a higher liquidity and media presence avoid a bigger mispricing on the market. 

Recently, I wrote about domestic and foreign dividend paying small-and midcaps that could give investors a bigger opportunity for rising returns via a small capitalization. The disadvantage is definitely the higher risks.

With the Standard & Poor’s 500 having tripled off its financial-crisis low to trade near an all-time high, investors have started to look overseas for cheap stocks.

Big money flooded the European market within recent months and pushed the local stock markets in Europe.

While the Euro is still in a down trend, the current QE program of the ECB could lead to further fire power on the market.

Attached are 4 big names from the old country with deep values and solid dividends. Most of the results come from the healthcare sector, especially from the pharmacy industry.

These are the results:
