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.
