Dividend Challengers with the highest dividend yields originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". Dividend Challengers are the third class of the best dividend growth stocks. They raised cash distributions to shareholders in form of dividends over a period between 5 and 10 years without a break.
Exactly 175 stocks raised dividends over this period. Today, I like to present the best yielding Challengers. The list below shows all High-Yield stocks. In total, there are 30 companies with a yield of more than 5 percent and nearly half of the results are recommended to buy.
Some Challengers have the potential to grow dividends to real Champions but most of them will fail over the next five or ten years. I personally would not use the dividend growth criteria as a big requirement. The biggest capital gains will be made with good growth picks. The payments will come from alone in the end.
Here is the full table with some fundamentals:
Take a closer look at the full list. The average P/E ratio amounts to 21.46 and forward P/E ratio is 19.01. The dividend yield has a value of 7.31 percent. Price to book ratio is 2.71 and price to sales ratio 4.19. The operating margin amounts to 28.28 percent and the beta ratio is 0.77. Stocks from the list have an average debt to equity ratio of 1.71.
