My 3 Favorite Consumer Dividend Stocks with Cheapest Valuation

I love consumer dividend stocks. Nearly 60 percent of my own stock allocation has a relationship to the sector. For sure they also had a very low performance compared to other stocks but they give me stability and trust to invest bigger amounts of money into the stock market.

A few years before, I purchased consumer stocks for an average yield of 3.5 percent. Today the sector has a yield of 2.78 percent despite the fact that most of the consumer stocks raised year over year their dividends. consumer stocks getting more and more expensive and the only core reason for this development is the expansive monetary policy.

Today I go forward with my monthly screens of the cheapest dividend stocks measured by the lowest forward P/E. The 20 cheapest stocks with a higher market capitalization are valuated between 7.8 and 12.5. Only one high-yield is part of the results. Nearly all companies, 17 in total, are currently recommended to buy.

Here are my favorite stocks:
