Do you prefer stocks that offer both dividend income and the real possibility of capital gains? You might be interested in our list below:

We began by screening for low-debt dividend stocks: those paying dividend yields above 1%, with sustainable payout ratios below 50%, and debt-to-equity ratios below 0.1.

We then screened for those with encouraging sales trends, as indicated by faster growth in revenue than accounts receivable year-over-year, as well as receivables comprising a smaller portion of current assets over the same time period.

Accounts receivable represents the portion of revenue not yet received, so the smaller the portion of revenue the better.
