The Best Growing Consumer Dividend Stocks for the Next Five Years

Stocks from the consumer goods sector are characterized by low volatility and stable dividends, but they also have a slow growth especially due to the aftereffects of the financial and debt crises.

I made a screen of the sector by the best yielding stocks with highest expected growth for the next five years. I decided to select only stocks whose earnings per share are expected to grow by more than 10 percent for the next five years and whose dividend yields are above 3 percent. Exactly thirteen stocks fulfilled these criteria, of which three are high yields. Eight stocks are recommended with a buy or better rating. It is not surprising that four companies belong to the cigarettes industry.

Here are my favorite stocks:

Lorillard (LO) has a market capitalization of $16.16 billion. The company employs 2,700 people, generates revenues of $6,466.00 million and has a net income of $1,116.00 million. The firm’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounts to $1,892.00 million. Because of these figures, the EBITDA margin is 29.26 percent (operating margin 29.26 percent and the net profit margin finally 17.26 percent).

The total debt representing 86.27 percent of the company’s assets and the total debt in relation to the equity amounts to percent. Due to the financial situation, a return on equity of percent was realized. Twelve trailing-months earnings per share reached a value of $8.01. Last fiscal year, the company paid $5.45 in form of dividends to shareholders.

Here are the price ratios of the company: The P/E ratio is 15.29, Price/Sales 2.56 and Price/Book is not calculable. Dividend Yield: 4.24 percent. The beta ratio is 0.38.

British American Tobacco (BTI) has a market capitalization of $97.97 billion. The company employs 92,285 people, generates revenues of $23,423 million and has a net income of $4,941 million. The firm’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounts to $7,588.92 million. Because of these figures, the EBITDA margin is 32.40 percent (operating margin 29.01 percent and the net profit margin finally 21.10 percent).

The total debt representing 36.79 percent of the company’s assets and the total debt in relation to the equity amounts to 111.34 percent. Due to the financial situation, a return on equity of 34.24 percent was realized. Twelve trailing months earnings per share reached a value of $5.09. Last fiscal year, the company paid $3.59 in form of dividends to shareholders.

The firm’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounts to $14,325.00 million. Because of these figures, the EBITDA margin is 18.76 percent (operating margin 17.46 percent and the net profit margin finally 11.63 percent).
