Dividend paying stocks are not unique to the U.S. equity markets. In the recent edition of S&P's Outlook newsletter, dividend paying stocks in the S&P Euro 350 Index were highlighted. Standard and Poor's ran a screen:
"...for foreign companies within S&P Equity Research’s coverage universe that trade as American Depositary Receipts or Shares on a U.S. exchange, are ranked four or five STARS, and have a dividend yield higher than that of the S&P 500."
The list of stocks that meet the screening criteria are detailed below.
