    Mega capitalized stocks and their dividends originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". I often talk about large capitalized stocks and that they might offer a lower risk than small or micro caps.

    It's my general experience because I saw their business models and know that large capitalized companies are a compilation of several small and mid caps. Look at Procter & Gamble. They have a huge brand portfolio under the P&G corporate brand and a big part of them generate sales over a billion U.S. Dollar and employs thousands of people.

    I believe that a compilation of 10 or 20 mid caps could be a better investment for investors because they can benefit from the corporate diversification. For sure, the price they pay is a lower performance compared to pureblooded stocks with a single business model. Stable dividends and systematic growth is my major focus and most of them are generated by higher capitalized stocks. That's the result of my research.

    Today I like to give you an overview of the yields from mega caps. Those are companies with a market capitalization above the USD 200 billion mark. Only 20 listed companies have such a big market capitalization and 18 of them pay good dividends; 16 have a buy or better recommendation.

    Here is the full table with some fundamentals:
