Basically I am trying to get rich using Dividend stocks. Here's how

I put the Market cap of over 1 billion, PE of under 20 (although I prefer to go lower), projected EPS growth positive, cash flow (from operating and net change in cash) has to be way positive, insider holding over 50% (not too important), has to have at least a little cash, PEG under 1, Beta under 1.4, five year EPS growth has to be positive, Net profit margin over 10% (also not too important), ROE under one, and most importantly, payout ratio under 40, dividend growth between 10% and 20%, and the bigger the dividend, the better (as long as the other criteria don't indicate that it's a dead company). Also I tried to spread out my investment to diffirent sectors.

This hyperlink is to the Yahoo! stock screener that I use, you can't set all the things listed above, but CAPS has almost all the rest, and I use Google finance for what it doesn't, as well as for my portfolio so I can see exactly how much money I've made...hopefully.

Feel free to leave comments and advice.

Do you know what ROE means? Why would you want it under 1? Is that a typo?

In case that's not a typo and you don't know what it means, ROE is "Return On Equity," or one year's profit divided by the average shareholder equity for that year, usually expressed as a percentage. A higher ROE is usually taken to indicate a more efficient use of resources at management's disposal, though ROE can be inflated (some would argue "enhanced") using debt. If you control for debt, a high ROE can be a very good attribute to find in a company.

Oh, oops I actually meant debt to equity (which is a company's debt/shareholders equity). I had only thrown it into my formula a few days ago because fool suggested it. I think they have it as a decimal on CAPS, so I figured under 1 would be good. right?

Thanks for pointing that out, I'll change it right away.
