Industrial Dividend Stocks With Accelerated Growth Researched ByDividend yield - Stock, Capital, Investment. Industrials are very cyclic and they are an early indicator for the health of the economy. Within the recent years, the sector realized a good recovery from the financial crises but the market cycle doesn’t seem to be ended.

In order to find some opportunities from the industrial sector, I screened stocks with an earnings growth of more than 10% over the past five years. In order to catch up only stocks with a gaining earnings momentum, I observed only those stocks with a quarter-over-quarter sales and earnings per share growth of more than 15%.
