Best Dividend Paying Stocks Lists By Dividend Yield – Stock, Capital, Investment. Happy new year fellow investors. I hope 2013 will become a great year for our asset allocation.

Let’s start the first post for this year with our regular best dividend paying stock list.

The best equity investment is a stock with good fundamentals and a convincing equity story. If this stock is also attractive valuated it could promise good returns. I’ve tried to summarize some significant fundamentals in order to screen the whole capital markets by interesting dividend stocks.

Every month I create a quick dividend list (from low-yield to high-yield paying stocks) of stocks with interesting performance and valuation figures. Stocks from that list are mid- and large caps (market capitalization of more than USD 1 billion) with double-digit long-term earnings growth rates. The companies are traded at AMEX, NYSE, NASDAQ and part of the Dow Jones, S&P 500 or Nasdaq Composite. The list is selected by the following criteria and sorted by dividend yield.

Market capitalization: > 1 Billion
Price/Earnings Ratio: > 0 < 100
Dividend Yield: > 3 < 20
Return on investment: > 10 < 100
Operating Margin: > 10 < 100
10 Year Revenue Growth: > 8 < 200
10 Year EPS Growth: > 10 < 100
