    The premise makes sense but the screen is very broad, returning 476 stocks. Adding additional criteria, like the criteria in Stock Rover's standard dividend screen, narrows the field to just 39 stocks, a much more manageable number. In addition to a market cap of >$1B, their criteria is:

    a yield of between 3 and 10%;

    1 year dividend growth of >10%;

    3 year dividend growth >2%;

    5 year dividend growth >2%;

    a payout ratio of between 30 and 60%.
