Stock Screen: Solid Dividends

I collected a lot of stock screens this past year. Most use the free deluxe screener available at the MSN Money website. The screens are sometimes hard to find on the MSN website, so I thought I would share them.

This is a screen that finds high-dividend candidates with good prospects for increasing their payouts:

Current Dividend Yield >= 4.25

Latest Dividend Rate >= 0.25

Last Price >= 15

Fundamental Grade >= C

Market Capitalization >= 1,000,000,000

Mean Recommendation >= Moderate Buy

Return on Equity >= 8

EPS Growth Next 5-Years >= 8

Technical Grade >= C

Here is a link to the MSN article by Harry Domash with a description of how and why the above parameters are used.

I would like to comment about the notion that penny stocks are bad investments their are lots of stocks trading between 1 dollars and 5 dollars that are really great bargains.


Dividend investing is great.
