Industrial Dividend Stocks With Highest Float Short Ratio

Dividend Stocks From The Industrial Sector With Highest Short Float Ratio Researched By Dividend Yield - Stock, Capital, Investment. The industrial sector is a highly developed part of the economy with very cyclic forms. At the stock markets are 354 companies linked to the sector with a total market capitalization of USD 47.9 trillion. The average sector yield amounts to 2.46 percent and the average P/E ratio is 12.71. The highest dividend paying industries are Cement and Manufacturing Housing.

I screened the sector by dividend stocks with the highest amount of short selling stocks, measured by the float short ratio. The ratio shows how many stocks are shorted by investors. Companies with a high ratio of float short have a little upside potential if investors need to close their short position. Nine dividend stocks from the industrial goods sector have a float short ratio of more than 10 percent.
