Are you a dividend investor searching for stocks with high yields of over 5%? Would you be even more interested if you could get those high yields at a discount? If so, we ran a screen you may be interested in.
The Price/Book Value Ratio is a great price-multiple valuation metric to find companies that could be potentially undervalued or overvalued. If a firm has a Price/Book Value Ratio of less than 1 it is stated to be trading below "break up" value. A lower P/BV Ratio can indicate a potentially mispriced company or indicate that something is fundamentally wrong with it.
The PEG ratio (price/earnings to growth ratio) is a valuation metric for determining the relative trade-off between the price of a stock, the earnings generated per share [EPS], and the company's expected growth. In general, the P/E ratio is higher for a company with a higher growth rate. Thus using just the P/E ratio would make high-growth companies appear overvalued relative to others. It is assumed that by dividing the P/E ratio by the earnings growth rate, the resulting ratio is better for comparing companies with different growth rates. A lower ratio is 'better' (cheaper) and a higher ratio is 'worse' (expensive) - a PEG ratio of 1 means the company is fairly priced.
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 that have a high dividend yield (Div. Yield > 5%). We next screened for businesses that are undervalued (P/BV<1)(PEG Ratio < 1). We then looked for businesses that have high future earnings per share growth forecasts(1-year projected EPS Growth Rate>25%). We did not screen out any market caps or sectors.
