I’m a real dividend growth investor and I ever look for stocks that pay in 10 years a dividend that is twice as big as today. That’s the reason why along with growth possibilities I also always look at the dividend payout and debt figures. A company with little debt, high cash and low dividend payouts has much to offer for current shareholders.

Today I would like to screen the industrial sector by stocks with low debt figures and dividend payouts. I selected only those stocks with a 20 percent dividend payout and a debt to equity ratio of less than 0.2.

Only thirteen stocks fulfilled these two criteria of which ten have a current buy or better ratio. The results are dominated by lower capitalized stocks. Only five have a market cap over a billion dollar.
