Today I'm updating my monthly screen focusing on the cheapest dividend paying stocks on the capital market. I use six very strong criteria and only around a dozen companies remain each month.

My criteria for the cheap large cap screen are:
- Market Capitalization over USD 10 billion
- Expected Earnings per share growth over 10 percent for the next year.
- P/E ratio under 15
- P/S and P/B ratio under 2
- Positive Dividends

Twelve companies fulfilled the above mentioned criteria and ten of them have a current buy or better rating. One stock has a high yield (5 percent dividend yield or more). To buy cheap stocks is no guarantee for a return but you get value for what you pay and the possibility to overpay a stock is also low if the business model is stable.
