My Favorite Industrial Dividend Stocks With Low Forward P/E

By
A A A

The cheapest large cap industrial dividend stocks, measured by the lowest forward P/E, are valuated between 8.27 and 14.08. Sixteen of the 20 cheapest industrial stocks have a current buy or better rating.

Industrials are more cyclic by nature but they can give you a boost to your portfolio, especially when the economy is in a rush. My favorite buying sector is still the consumer sector. I love consumer stocks because of the high margins and strong consumer loyalty which results in relative robust sales. Consumer stocks are the subject of my analysis within the next week.
