My Favorite Apparel Store Dividend Stocks

Dividend stocks should be a part of everybody’s long-term stock portfolio. Let’s take a look into the apparel stores industry, one that I have analyzed by the best-yielding dividend stocks. Stocks from the industry have a total market capitalization of $115 billion. The average industry P/E ratio is 16.4, P/B ratio 4.4 and the average dividend yield amounts to 2.0%. An average company from the industry has a net profit margin of 5.9%.

I screened the industry by stocks with a dividend yield more than 2%, a forward P/E ratio of less than 15 as well as a market capitalization of more than $1 billion. In addition, the stocks should have an expected earnings per share growth for the next year of more than 5%. Below are three major dividend paying players from the industry that met these criteria:

Here are my three most promising results:

1. GAP (GPS) has a market capitalization of $8.4 billion, generates revenues in an amount of $14.7 billion and a net income of $1.1 billion. It follows P/E ratio is 9.0 and forward P/E ratio 9.6, P/S 0.6 and P/B ratio 2.8. Dividend Yield: 2.8%. The expected EPS growth for next year amounts to 14.1 and 9.6% for the upcoming five years.

2. Nordstrom (JWN) has a market capitalization of $9.7 billion, generates revenues in an amount of $10.2 billion and a net income of $671.0 million.
