Interested in stocks paying dividend income but don't know where to start looking? Here are some ideas to get you started.

We ran a screen on large cap stocks paying dividend yields above 1%.

We then screened for those stocks with strong sales trends, comparing growth in revenue to growth in accounts receivable. Since accounts receivable is the portion of revenue not yet received, and there is no guarantee the money will ever be received, the smaller the portion of revenue made up of receivables the healthier the company's revenue.

We screened for stocks seeing faster growth in revenue than accounts receivable year-over-year, as well as accounts receivable comprising a smaller portion of current assets over the same time period.

Finally, we screened for those that are reporting earnings this week.
