Dividend investing - 57 quality, high dividend yield investment ideas

With interest rates around the world still at record low levels I thought you would be interested in a few high quality high dividend yield (dividend investing) investment ideas.

 

Quality dividend investing

You know not all high dividend yield companies are worth buying because you also have to make sure the company can continue paying that high dividend in future and that is what this screen does for you.

It gives you a list quality companies that have a high and sustainable dividend yield.

 

How the dividend investing list was selected

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

This is what the screen looks like:

First, to make sure the only quality companies are included; I selected Market Leading companies (large healthy companies) from around the world.

Market Leading companies are non-utility companies with larger than average; market value, number of shares outstanding, free cash flow and sales above 1.5 times the average of all the companies in the screener.

You can read more about Market Leading companies here: Large companies on steroids – Market Leaders

Secondly I selected companies with a healthy dividend coverage ratio of more than 2.5.

This means their profit per share is 2.5 times bigger than the dividend per share that they pay out. (Dividend Coverage Ratio = Earnings per share / Dividend per share)

Finally I then sorted this list by dividend yield (Dividend Yield = the trailing 12 month (TTM) dividend / Last closing share price)

 

No extremely high dividend yields - a good thing

You will see the dividends are not very high; this is a good thingy because research studies have shown that companies with a very high dividend yield (yields you can hardly believe) do not make good investments.
