The 20 Biggest Basic and Raw Material Dividend Payers

Largest Dividend Stocks from the Basic Material Sector Researched by “long-term-investments.blogspot.com.” The basic material sector is of huge importance for the growth of the economy. Cheap raw materials imply low inflation rates. As a result, interest rates could be low and money easing programs should start in order to boost growth. Despite the fact that the U.S. economy is a consumer-based one, the basic material sector is a big place for investors: 601 companies are classifiable to the sector and they all together have a market capitalization of USD208.95 trillion (most of the biggest stocks come from abroad). The average P/E is 10.27 and the yield amounts to 3.13 percent. Below the 20 biggest dividend payers are three high yields; sixteen are currently recommended to buy.
