Want to Bet on High Earnings Yield Stocks? Check These Out

Investors often use P/E ratio and other valuation metrics while picking stocks that are undervalued. However, it is difficult to use the P/E ratio to compare stocks with fixed income securities. This is where its inverse — Earnings Yield — comes handy. Other things remaining constant, a stock with a higher earnings yield has the potential of providing comparatively greater returns.

Earnings Yield is calculated as (Annual Earnings per Share/Market Price) x 100.

Earnings Yield can be used to compare a stock with other stocks or fixed income securities. It is also used to compare the performance of a market index with the 10-year Treasury yield.

When the yield of the market index is more than the 10-year Treasury yield, stocks can be considered as undervalued than bonds. In this scenario, investing in the stock market would be a better option for a value investor.

However, you need to keep in mind that T-bills are risk free and investing in stocks always comes with a caveat. Hence, it would be a good idea to add a risk premium to the Treasury yield while comparing it with the earnings yield of a stock or the overall market.
