5 Highly Profitable Cash Rich Dividend Stocks

We had high standards in mind while creating the list below. At the forefront of the process was a strong and protected dividend yield.

It was decided we would screen for dividend stocks with exceptional profit margins and the extra cash on hand to continue payments come hell or high water.

Here’s how we screened:

First, we looked for highly profitable companies. We measure this as stronger trailing twelve month (TTM) operating, gross and pretax margins than the average of their industry peers.

Secondly, we looked at cash and short term investments on hand relative to the company’s quarterly operating expenses, as averaged over 5 quarters. We took only the companies with cash holdings that exceed 4 times the average quarterly operating expense.

In other words, all of these companies could function for more than four quarters without generating any revenue. This is especially important in uncertain times.  If sales hit the fan in a bad way, it’s important to know that these firms are liquid enough to withstand a couple rough patches. It is also a healthy sign that they could then be headed towards expansion or even increase their dividend yield.
