Low volatility dividend paying stocks with cheap price ratios and top yields originally published at long-term-investments.blogspot.com. On my blog I've listed over 100 stocks with safe haven characteristics. For sure no stock is safe and no dividend is guaranteed but there are some shares with a higher risk and bigger volatility which I don't like. I'm looking for low yielding stocks with solid debt ratios and modest growth perspectives with a proven business model and a long-term dividend growth history.
Today, I produced a screen with the following core criteria:
- Market Capitalization over USD 10 billion
- Debt-to-Equity Ratio below 0.5
- Beta Ratio Below one
In order to get the top yielding results with cheap expected P/E's, I selected only those stocks with a forward P/E of less than 15 as well as a dividend yield of more than 3 percent. Only thirteen stocks fulfilled my safe haven characteristics of which two are High-Yields and seven are recommended to buy. Many telecoms are part of the results.
Here is the full table with some fundamentals:
Take a closer look at the full list. The average P/E ratio amounts to 14.29 and forward P/E ratio is 11.88. The dividend yield has a value of 3.96 percent. Price to book ratio is 2.33 and price to sales ratio 2.38. The operating margin amounts to 23.78 percent and the beta ratio is 0.78. Stocks from the list have an average debt to equity ratio of 0.24.
