Best Dividend Paying Industrial Stocks Researched By " long-term-investments.blogspot.com ". Industrials are very good for your Asset Allocation. Behind Consumer and Services, the industrial sector is one of the biggest parts of the U.S. Economy. In total, there are 355 companies listed with a common market capitalization of USD 48.43 trillion. The average P/E ratio amounts to 13.77 and the dividend yield is near 2 percent.

In order to find the best dividend paying growth stocks from the industrial sector, I screened all companies with a positive dividend yield, great earnings per share growth of more than 10 percent and an operating margin over 15 percent. To get the best results in terms of low debt and high cash, the debt to equity ratio should be under 0.5. Sixteen industrials remained of which nine are currently recommended to buy. The best recommended stock is the aerospace and defense company HEICO ( HEI ) with a yield of 0.32 percent and a buy rating.
