Everybody likes to invest in well growing companies with strong brands and big cash flows, free for distributing to shareholders via share buybacks or dividend payments. The best stocks to buy are not only the cheapest shares with a low P/E or a high dividend yield. Good stocks are also those with a great track record in terms of industry growth and future growth prospects. Now, we are close to year-end and I like to discover some growth stock picks for next year 2013. Today, I focus on stocks from the industrial goods sector (354 shares available). These are my criteria:

- Forward P/E under 15
- Past five-year sales growth over 10 percent
- Earnings per share growth for the next five years over 10 percent
- Operating Margin over 10 percent

Sixteen companies fulfilled the above mentioned criteria. Eight of them pay dividends and 14 have a current buy or better recommendation. The two best represented industries within the screening results are aerospace/defense and industrial equipments.

Here are the three best-yielding dividend stocks:
