    Best yielding dividend stocks from Europe with buy rating published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". Europe's roof is on fire due to the debt crises. That was one of the major headlines in the press of the recent year. Sure, the fire still burns but the worst seems to be over.

    Europe's economy still has values. It's also an export-driven mainland with a GDP of 13,076 billion, the second largest figure in the world. Certainly, the economy is weak, unemployment rates are at a high level of 11.8 percent and growth slows with a contracting GDP growth of -0.6 percent year over year.

    But the currency market turns and reaches the highest value since the debt crises was debated. More and more money comes back to Europe mainly because the ECBs easing policy which is one of the most reserved below the leading industrialized national banks.

    Europe is not dead and I like to show you the best yielding investment opportunities with a current buy rating and a listing in the United States. 162 companies with headquarter in Europe are listed on an American Stock Exchange. 102 of them pay dividends and 57 have a current buy or better rating. In order to exclude the stocks with a higher risk due to a small business model, I selected only stocks with a market capitalization over USD 10 billion. 41 stocks still remain.

    You can find a list of the 20 most recommended stocks below. The list shows that Europe has still completive companies with a dominant market position. I think about Novo Nordisk or Anheuser Bush. Also Deutsche Bank and National Grid are leading players.

    Here is the full table with some fundamentals:

    20 Of Europe's Best Recommended Dividend Stocks...

    Take a closer look at the full list. The average P/E ratio amounts to 18.08 and forward P/E ratio is 13.02. The dividend yield has a value of 1.93 percent. Price to book ratio is 4.51 and price to sales ratio 2.35. The operating margin amounts to 17.35 percent and the beta ratio is 1.39. Stocks from the list have an average debt to equity ratio of 4.71. Sure some of Europe's stocks have a really huge debt amount.
