While Most of Wall Street focuses on large and mega-cap stocks, as they provide a degree of safety and liquidity, many investors are limited in the number of shares they can buy. Many of the most significant public companies, especially the technology giants, trade at prices up to $1000 per share, while many are in the low to mid-hundreds. It's hard to get decent share count leverage at those steep prices.

    Many investors, especially more aggressive traders, look at lower-priced stocks to make good money and get a higher share count. That can help the decision-making process, especially when you are on to a winner, as you can always sell and keep half.

    For low-price stock skeptics, many of the biggest companies in the world, including Apple, Amazon, NetFlix, and NVIDIA, all traded in the single digits at one time.

    We screened our 24/7 Wall St. research database, looking for smaller-cap companies that could offer patient investors enormous returns for the rest of 2024 and beyond. Five companies that hit our screens also pay huge dividends, making the total return potential even more intriguing.

    Why are we covering these stocks?

    For investors with a smaller capital base, low-price stocks that pay large dividends are an incredible way to not only generate passive income but to produce a big total returns. At 247 Wall St., we consistently emphasize the potential of total return to our readers, as it is one of the most effective ways to enhance the prospects of overall investing success. Once again, total return is the collective increase in a stock's value plus dividends.
