+10% yielding shares with strong earnings per share growth originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com" Some of my friends search regular for stocks with very high yield. I don't talk about high-yields, stocks with yields between 5-10 percent. I mean stocks with annualized dividend yields of more than 10 percent.

It sounds a bit unserious and I personally would never buy such stocks but I can understand my friends because they have only a low net worth and they try to boost their passive income from dividends.

Let me say one thing: It could not sustainable for any kind of business to pay such a high amount of money to shareholders at a normal valuation. Something must be wrong. But if find an attractive investment, you can boost your dividend income and in ten years your investment paid-off.

Out there are 148 stocks with a yield over 10 percent. I've tried to figure out some interesting stocks.

These are my criteria:

- Dividend Yield above 10%

- Earnings per share growth for the next 5Y over 5%

- Market Capitalization over 300 million

Eighteen shares fulfilled these criteria. Seven of them have a current buy or better recommendation.
