Most recommended consumer goods dividend stocks originally published at " long-term-investments.blogspot.com ". Today I like to screen one of my favorite investment sectors, the consumer goods sector. I want to show you who are the best, higher yielding dividend stocks with a buy or better rating.

Stocks from the sector have a total market capitalization of USD 197.4 trillion. The average P/E is 21.58 and the dividend yield amounts to 3.28 percent. The highest yielding industries are still business equipments and cigarettes.


Cigarettes and tobacco companies have the highest share in my private portfolio. They represent around 25 percent of my assets and they are also one of my biggest dividend contributors over the year.

However, 396 stocks are available for trading with a relation to the consumer sector. 185 of them pay dividends and 123 have a current buy or better rating. Below is a small list of the 20 higher capitalized companies (over USD 2 billion) with the highest buy rating. Most of the results are low yielding but the expected growth rates for the next years look fantastic. Dare a glance and let me know in the comment area which of the stocks you like most.
