14 Basic Material Stocks with Strongest Earnings Forecasts and Good Dividends

Basic materials are the source of all products. They are necessary for economic growth and wealth. Normally, the valuation of a company from the sector depends on the price developments from the underlying commodities. In times of economic slowdowns, there are overcapacities and pricing pressure. Otherwise in booming times, commodity stocks are highly scalable companies.

I screened the sector by stocks with the highest earnings per share growth for the upcoming five years (at least 15 percent yearly). In addition, the company should pay today more than 3 percent in cash dividends. Fourteen stocks fulfilled my criteria of which six are high yields. Twelve stocks have a buy or better recommendation.
