Stocks with very high dividend yields and buy or better recommendations originally published at long-term-investments.blogspot.com. Some of my readers like you have a huge desire for income stocks. Not enough, they should have a good payout in terms of initial yields and offer you a great opportunity with price hikes.
It's hard to find the perfect dividend stock that delivers you a great return at a low risk and the higher the initial yield, the bigger the risk seems.
Today I would like to introduce you some of the highest yielding stocks at the stock market with current buy or better ratings by brokerage firms.
At the market are around a hundred stocks with double-digit dividend yields but most of them, 78 percent, are small capitalized. I don't like stocks with a small market cap because of the low diversification and high sensitivity when trading volume comes into the stock. In my current screen, I observe only stocks with a USD 2 billion or more capitalization. Below is a list of the 9 highest yielding stocks with a buy or better rating.
Here is the full table with some fundamentals:
Take a closer look at the full list. The average P/E ratio amounts to 11.03 and forward P/E ratio is 9.0. The dividend yield has a value of 15.10 percent. Price to book ratio is 3.52 and price to sales ratio 2.93. The operating margin amounts to 39.14 percent and the beta ratio is 0.72. Stocks from the list have an average debt to equity ratio of 2.02.
