I ran a simple value screen, looking for large-cap stocks that pay a dividend and have a low price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio. These are the kind of stocks that have traditionally been favored by value investors. Large-cap stocks with market caps greater than $10 billion are usually stable companies with solid earnings and little risk of bankruptcy.Dividends that are above the rate of inflation are necessary for income investors, so I looked for stocks with dividend yields above 2%. And I used low P/E ratios as an indicator that the stock is not overpriced.Out of the more than 6,400 stocks that my screening software has data on, 105 stocks passed this test.

Investors starved for higher interest rates could spark a bull market in dividend-paying stocks.
