I like to invest in dividend stocks with a big-dividend yield. Unfortunately, high-yielding stocks with adequate growth rates and safe dividends are very rare and highly priced. Real bargains are more likely to be found with a lower market capitalization but the risks are significantly higher.

In order to find some investment opportunities with a higher capitalization, I screened the popular S&P 500 (SPY) by high-yield stocks with an expected earnings per share growth of more than 5% yearly for the upcoming half decade. The S&P 500 is of huge importance for the asset allocation of investors and has over $5.58 trillion benchmarked, with index assets comprising approximately $1.31 trillion of this total. The index includes 500 leading companies in leading industries of the U.S. economy.

Twenty-four companies within the index have a yield over 5 percent but only12 stocks have an estimated earnings per share growth of more than 5 percent yearly. These are the detailed results:
