  • 6 Cheapest Stocks With Dividend Yields Over 2%

    I always scout for stocks with cheap price ratios. Benjamin Graham was a great teacher about identifying fundamentally cheap stocks and one of his most popular students were billionaire Warren Buffett itself.

    I love to buy stocks that are not far away from its fundamentally reasonable price. Three good indicators are Price-to-Book, Price-to-Sales and Price-to-Earnings.

    Growth and a better than anticipated business environment are the main driver for wealth which let the stock price skyrocket.

    Integrate both in your trading strategy and you will get a better investment return.

    Yesterday, I wrote about stocks that have tenfold their sales over the past decade. It is very impressive so see how strong can companies grow but if you look at Facebook, you pay a high price for that growth.

    I'm not sure if your investment in twitter and facebook will pay-off as long-term investor. You must be carefully look at the P-Ratios.

    I've created a small sheet of cheap dividend stocks with a dividend yield hitting the 2% yield mark. These are my criteria in detail:

    - Dividend Yield over 2%

    - P/B under 2

    - P/S below 2

    - Forward P/E under 15

    - Market Cap over 2 billion

    - Dividend Payout ratio under 60%

    Eighteen stocks fulfilled my criteria of which one yields over five percent.

    Below are my six favorites.

    #1 Old Republic International (NYSE:ORI) has a market capitalization of $3.86 billion. The company employs 7,900 people, generates revenue of $5,442.70 million and has a net income of $447.90 million. Old Republic International's earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounts to $718.30 million. The EBITDA margin is 13.20 percent (the operating margin is 12.76 percent and the net profit margin 8.23 percent).

    Financial Analysis: The total debt represents 3.44 percent of Old Republic International's assets and the total debt in relation to the equity amounts to 15.08 percent. Due to the financial situation, a return on equity of 12.15 percent was realized by Old Republic International. Twelve trailing months earnings per share reached a value of $1.60. Last fiscal year, Old Republic International paid $0.72 in the form of dividends to shareholders.

    Market Valuation: Here are the price ratios of the company: The P/E ratio is 9.29, the P/S ratio is 0.71 and the P/B ratio is finally 1.02. The dividend yield amounts to 4.94 percent and the beta ratio has a value of 0.91. - See #2- #6 here: 6 Cheapest Stocks With Dividend Yields Over 2%...

  • 9 Dividend Stocks That Have 10x Higher Sales Than A Decade Before

    Growth makes addicted. A company that doubles each ten years sales and threefold earnings is a good return and cash cow for your portfolio if you have not overpaid your investment.

    Google, Facebook and other techies are good growth stocks with deep values but they are definitely too expensive to make a good return. If not, I am wrong and they boost sales by a higher rate but that's speculation and not investing.

    I've released an article about growth stocks with a smaller market capitalization that have doubled sales over the recent decade.

    I wrote this article, inspired by a Chinese couple that bought some shares of Apple in the 90's and made a profit on its initial investment of $276,600. That's really great. Long-term investing brings huge money into your pocket.

    Today I like to introduce those dividend stocks that have outperformed the most of the listed stocks by fundamental growth ratios. They have tenfold their sales within the past decade. It is great? Sure it is!

    9 Dividend stocks with the highest sales growth over the past decade are...

    #1 NutriSystem (NASDAQ:NTRI) has a market capitalization of $469.73 million. The company employs 466 people, generates revenue of $358.09 million and has a net income of $7.37 million. NutriSystem's earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounts to $19.86 million. The EBITDA margin is 5.55 percent (the operating margin is 3.06 percent and the net profit margin 2.06 percent).

    Financial Analysis: The total debt represents 0.00 percent of NutriSystem's assets and the total debt in relation to the equity amounts to 0.00 percent. Due to the financial situation, a return on equity of 12.80 percent was realized by NutriSystem. Twelve trailing months earnings per share reached a value of $0.36. Last fiscal year, NutriSystem paid $0.70 in the form of dividends to shareholders.

  • 10 Stocks Giving Investors More Money

    I'm a passionate dividend investor and I also like to see my dividends growing. For sure, dividend growth is no safe bet or a strategy that makes you quick rich but it can deliver a solid return.

    I've build a database with dividend growth stocks and stocks that have announced a share buyback program in order to monitor potential investment opportunities.

    Each day and week, I sit down and watch that list and switch stock by stock with hopes to find the next ten-bagger that could generate millions for my portfolio.

    Below is an overview of the latest dividend grower. Those stocks have raised dividends within the past week. This time, only 10 companies hiked their payments to shareholders.

    The biggest fish in the pool was Philip Morris, followed by American Tower and Yum! Brands.

    Big is beautiful but they also have a high debt burden in common.

    #1 Realty Income (NYSE:O) has a market capitalization of $9.46 Billion. The company employs 116 people, generates revenue of $778.38 million and has a net income of $179.18 million. Realty Income's earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounts to $684.52 million. The EBITDA margin is 87.94 percent (the operating margin is 46.61 percent and the net profit margin 23.02 percent).

    Financial Analysis: The total debt represents 41.99 percent of Realty Income's assets and the total debt in relation to the equity amounts to 77.37 percent. Due to the financial situation, a return on equity of 4.15 percent was realized by Realty Income. Twelve trailing months earnings per share reached a value of $0.79. Last fiscal year, Realty Income paid $2.15 in the form of dividends to shareholders.

    Market Valuation: Here are the price ratios of the company: The P/E ratio is 53.88, the P/S ratio is 12.16 and the P/B ratio is finally 1.85. The dividend yield amounts to 5.17 percent and the beta ratio has a value of 0.57. See #2 - #10 here: 10 Stocks Giving Investors More Money
