The following is a list of high yield dividend stocks with excellent growth prospects, with higher projected EPS growth rates than their industry competitors. All of the companies mentioned below also have some of the following characteristics:

  • EPS and revenue grew faster than their industry competitors over the last five years
  • Cash flow growth has accelerated faster than their industry competitors over the last five years
  • Capital spending accelerated at a faster rate than their competitors (theoretically, this makes them more competitive over the coming years)

We're not going to go into detailed analysis for each company. The goal here is to give growth-oriented investors a starting point for their own analysis.
