With interest rates around the world still at record low levels I thought you would value a few high quality investment ideas of companies with an attractive dividend yield.


Quality dividend investing

As you know not all high dividend yield companies make good investments because you have to make sure the company can continue to pay the high dividend in future.

This is the type of companies this screen selects for you.


How the dividend investing list was selected

This is what the screen looks like:

  • To make sure the only quality companies are included; I selected Market Leading companies (large healthy companies) from around the world.
  • I then only selected companies with a healthy dividend coverage ratio of more than 2. This means their profits are two times higher than the dividend they pay out.
  • I then sorted this list by dividend yield

You can read more about Market Leading companies (and why they make good investments) here: Large companies on steroids ? Market Leaders?


No extremely high dividend yields is a good thing

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

Improved quality high dividend companies ? Piotroski F-Score added

To improve the quality of the companies in the screen even further I added the Piotroski F-Score to the screen.
