Within the investment scene, growth is a wonderful way to create wealth. I personally like growth stocks especially when they pay good dividends. But growth is not an easy solution. A company creates value only if it grows its profitability.

On the first day of each 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
Occidental Petroleum Corporation (OXY) has a market capitalization of $63.13 billion. The company employs 12,300 people, generates revenue of $24.253 billion and has a net income of $4.272 billion. The firm’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounts to $12.031 billion. The EBITDA margin is 49.61 percent (the operating margin is 30.47 percent and the net profit margin 17.61 percent).
  • Financial Analysis: The total debt represents 11.87 percent of the company’s assets and the total debt in relation to the equity amounts to 19.05 percent. Due to the financial situation, a return on equity of 11.92 percent was realized. Twelve trailing months earnings per share reached a value of $5.71. Last fiscal year, the company paid $2.16 in the form of dividends to shareholders.
  • Market Valuation: Here are the price ratios of the company: The P/E ratio is 13.73, the P/S ratio is 2.60 and the P/B ratio is finally 1.74. The dividend yield amounts to 3.27 percent and the beta ratio has a value of 1.21.
