Our two investment criteria for this stock screener are the following:
Stocks should have a high-dividend yield of at least 8%
Stocks should have the last eps surprise of at least 25%
Why these two investment criteria? We believe that stocks that offer an attractive dividend yield are suitable in this investment period with plenty of volatility, an imminent US stock market recession, and are defensive stocks. Also, a positive eps surprise (earnings per share) surprise is a key fundamental driver for moving the stocks.
