A company with a 50% payout ratio (the ratio of dividend per share to earnings per share) has at least twice the earnings per dividend they pay out. Companies with high profit margins, 70% or better are generally safer investments when a decline in sales occurs. A low P/E Ratio indicates cheaper stock with more upside than downside potential and should provide a better long-term return.
In general, high yield stocks paying high dividends, typically above 5-10% provide a steady income with growth potential. Rule of 72 states, if you invest in a stock with a 10% yield, you will double your investment in 7 years from the dividend alone.
