High yielding dividend stocks are wonderful if you are looking for fast cash payback. In the capital markets, 417 high yield stocks are available, but not all of them have a sustainable dividend, while some of the others are too expensive.

In order to find some attractive high yield stocks, I screened the popular S&P 500 by stocks with a dividend yield over 5%, as well as a low P/E ratio of less than 15. The index serves 24 high yields, but only 10 companies have a low P/E ratio. The following are the detailed results and include one stock with a double-digit yield:
