Quality high dividend yield companies you can buy now

High dividend yield companies in a low interest rate world

With interest rates around the world at record low levels I thought you would value a few investment ideas of companies with a half decent dividend yield.

As you know not all high dividend yield companies make a good investment, you also have to make sure the company can pay the high dividend in future and that is what this list does.

It gives you a list of quality companies that have an attractive dividend yield.


How the list was put together

Before I get to the list of companies first some information on how the list was selected.

This is what the screen looks like:

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 ensure only quality companies are selected 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 I only included companies with a high free cash flow yield and a high dividend cover ratio.

All the above ratios are fully explained on the Glossary page
