Dividend investor – 32 high dividend yield companies in Europe - June 2020 update

With interest rates around the world looking like they will stay at record low levels here are a few high dividend yield investment ideas in Europe for you to look at.

You know not all high dividend yield companies make a good investment, you have to make sure the company can continue to pay the high dividend and this is exactly what this list does.

It gives you a list of quality European 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 I screened for:

  • Selected all the main markets in Europe, Scandinavia, UK and Switzerland
  • 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 and sell the shares).
  • To ensure only quality companies are selected companies with a low gross profit margin were excluded (Gross Margin Novy Marx).
  • Companies with a bad Piotroski F-Score of less than 5 (low quality companies) were excluded.
  • The 40% of companies with the highest dividend yield were included.
  • Only companies with financial results updated in the past six months were included
  • To make sure the dividend is sustainable only companies with a high free cash flow yield and a high dividend cover ratio were included.
  • I sorted the output of the screener from high to low by dividend yield.

All the ratios are fully explained on the Glossary page
