We ran a screen for stocks that yield at least 2.75% across various industries. To help assure we select names with a bright futures we also screened for stocks that have a rating of "Buy" or better by sell-side analysts. For this we used Zack's average analyst ratings (see interactive chart below). We also screened for companies with a low short interest, suggesting traders are optimistic about near-term performance.

Finally, we looked for stocks that were trading within 10% of their 52-week lows.
