Interested in stocks paying dividend income, but don't know where to start? Do you prefer stocks that are projected to grow over the next year? Are you after stocks that analysts are calling 'buy' or 'strong buy'? If so, here are some ideas to start your stock search.

EPS growth (earnings per share growth) illustrates the growth of earnings per share over time. The 1-Year Expected EPS Growth Rate is an annual growth estimate, where the growth projections are made by analysts, the company or other credible sources.

We first looked for stocks with a very high yield (more than 5%). We next screened for businesses with estimated high-growth, with 1-year projected EPS growth above 25%. We then looked for companies that analysts rate as "Buy" or "Strong Buy" (mean recommendation < 3). We did not screen out any market caps or sectors.

Do you think these stocks have a strong outlook? Please use our list to assist with your own analysis.
