It’s very important to know what yields are traded within a sector or industry in order to compare risks and premiums. I made a screen of the best yielding large capitalized consumer goods stocks. Fifty-four companies from the sector have a market capitalization over USD10 billion and 49 of them pay dividends. As result, 20 stocks with a yield over 3 percent remained.

Below are the results of three high yields of which Reynolds American (RAI) is the highest yielding stock, followed by Philips Electronics (PHG) and Altria (MO). The cigarettes industry has five representatives within the best yielding consumer stocks and covers the top dividend positions.
