As the markets continue to churn sideways in our summer months, I have kept a significant portion of my portfolio in dividend yielding (income producing) equities and, as my readers likely know, I continue to seek new, dividend-yielding value.

A recent screen of mine, which captures equities with low price to book (P/B) ratios, low price to sales (P/S) ratios, positive return on equity (ROE), positive dividend yield, buy or better analyst ratings, and high EPS growth, yielded 20 dividend-yielding equities selling at what seem to be bargain prices.

Beginning with the highest yielding equities, below is a list of twenty bargain equities with buy recommendations:
