4 Monster Energy Companies Issuing A Big Dividend

Wall St. Watchdog uncovered large cap stocks in the Energy sector that pay a large dividend.  Criteria for the screen are:

  • A market capitalization of at least $50 billion
  • The stock trades on an American exchange
  • Its 5-year average dividend yield is greater than 3%
  • Its current P/E (excluding extraordinary items) for the last fiscal year is greater than 0.01.  This means that the company’s normal operations are generating a positive net income, which should provide some cash cushion for future dividend payments.  Extraordinary items are excluded from this calculation because we’re using the 5-year average dividend yield as a proxy for dividend payments, and so any extraordinary items incurred in a particular year should be smoothed out over five years.
  • The company operates in the Energy sector

Our screen returned 4 companies that met these criteria. Following is some information on them:
