|Includes:AMID, APL, BBEPQ, CHSP, CLDT, VEREIT Inc. (VER)

Looking for dividends you can rely on? Do you prefer high-growth stocks? Are you after stocks that analysts are calling 'buy' or 'strong buy'? If so, we ran a screen keeping this idea in mind.

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%). Next, we then screened for businesses with estimated high-growth, with 1-year projected EPS growth above 25%. We then screened for businesses that analysts rate as "Buy" or "Strong Buy" (mean recommendation < 3). We did not screen out any market caps or sectors.
