While investing in stocks with high dividends may be a good scheme to reinforce your loss-aversion principle, playing the market to dodge volatility requires some extra cautious steps. Beta measures the extent to which a fund’s return may be affected or how much the price fluctuates owing to market conditions.
A high beta shows normally how the performance of a single stock differs from the overall market. The higher the ratio, the bigger the out- or underperformance develops.
It's great if you like to be different, a star or a looser on the market.
Today I like to show you those higher capitalized dividend stocks with beta ratios over 1.5 and dividend yields over 5%. In order to keep the over levered stocks off the list, I only observed stocks with a debt to equity ratio under 1.
