This is what I screened for:

  • Selected all the main markets in Europe, Scandinavia and North America
  • Selected companies with a daily traded volume of at least $125,000 and a market value larger than $65 million (you must be able to easily buy the shares)
  • To select only quality companies, companies with a low gross profit margin were excluded
  • Also excluded were companies with a Piotroski F-Score of less than 5
  • The 40% of companies with the highest dividend yield were included
  • To make sure the dividend is sustainable only companies with a high free cash flow yield and a high dividend cover ratio was selected.

All the above ratios are fully explained on the Glossary page
