12 Top Yielding Stocks With Potential To Double Dividends

Dividend stocks can be the foundation of a great retirement portfolio. Not only do the payments put money in your pocket, which can help hedge against any dips in the stock market, they're usually a sign of a financially sound company.

Dividends also give investors a painless opportunity to reinvest in a stock, thus compounding gains over time. However, not all income stocks live up to their full potential.

Using the payout ratio -- i.e., the percentage of profits a company returns to its shareholders as dividends -- we can get a good bead on whether a company has room to increase its dividend. Ideally, we like to see healthy payout ratios between 50% and 75%.

I run a screen to find some good stock ideas that could offer upside in terms of dividend payments.

My criteria were low payout (under 50%), low debt (under 0.5), solid growth (over 5% for the next five years) and finally a dividend yield over 3 percent. 12 stocks keep on the screen. Each has a market cap over 2 billion.

Here are 12 income stocks with payout ratios currently below 50% that could potentially double their dividends in the future easily....
