In order to identify some of the high dividend paying stocks in the Euro Zone countries I referred to the EURO STOXX® Select Dividend 30 Index. This index

offers exposure to the 30 highest dividend-paying stocks from Euro Zone countries. Only companies that have a non-negative historical five-year dividend-per-share growth rate and a dividend to earnings-per-share ratio of less than or equal to 60% are included. The index is weighted according to net dividend yield.

The table below lists the components of the EURO STOXX® Select Dividend 30 Index and the current yield of the ADRs if available:
