9 Consumer Dividend Stocks with Highest Float Short Ratio
Posted by: Dividend (IP Logged)

Dividend Stocks From The Service Sector With Highest Short Float Ratio Researched By Dividend Yield - Stock, Capital, Investment. The consumer sector is a major part of the economy with cyclic and non-cyclic roots.

At the stock markets are 407 companies linked to the sector with a total market capitalization of USD144.8 trillion. The average sector yield amounts to 2.71 percent and the average P/E ratio is 21.81. The highest dividend paying industries are Cigarettes and Toys & Games.

I screened the sector by dividend stocks with the highest amount of short selling stocks, measured by the float short ratio. The ratio shows how many stocks are shorted by investors. Companies with a high ratio of float short have a little upside potential if investors need to close their short position. Nine dividend stocks from the consumer goods sector have a float short ratio of more than 15 percent.

Here are my favorite stocks:
