Another approach I found worked not too badly:
Do a mega-blend of a whole bunch of plausible screens that all pick relatively strong firms at some stage.
Then, from among all those picks (maybe 100+), use the ones paying the highest dividends (maybe 40+)


A crude estimate of that theme for ETF screening. Not especially promising except maybe for a few exceptions.
