Top 10 High-Yield Big-Cap Growth Picks

Nobody wants volatility. But everyone wants capital appreciation, and if there's cash thrown in, all the better.

Large-cap and growth have been two ugly beasts over the past five years. But people need stability right now -- hence large-cap -- and growth has gotten so cheap that all the indices that track growth stocks have lower price-to-earnings ratios than the value indices. That's why I feel strongly that the winds are changing toward growth and large-cap.

However, let's play it safe and find the large-cap growth stocks that are most likely to succeed and then cement the deal with a nice steady dividend check every quarter. That way, if the market ever slips, it won't bring our friends with it. On Stockpickr, we've set up a portfolio of the Highest-Yielding Large-Cap Growth Stocks.

First on the list is Telefonica of Argentina (TAR), a Buenos Aires-based company that provides both business and residential telecommunications services throughout Argentina. The stock has an extremely high P/E ratio of 247; however, it yields 10% based on its latest annual dividend. Telefonica of Argentina has been paying dividends for 12 years. This is one of the stocks on the Stockpickr list of high-yield Argentina Stocks.

Telecom Italia (TI.A - Get Report) is another telecommunications company, this one based in Rome but with operations in both Europe and South America. Its P/E is a reasonable 10.7, and its P/E-to-growth ratio is 3.6. The stock carries an annual dividend rate of 7.4%.
