My 4 Favorites from the 20 Highest-Recommended Consumer Dividend Stocks

Today I would like to screen one of my favorite investment sectors, consumer goods. I want to show you who are the best, higher-yielding dividend stocks with a buy or better rating.

Stocks from the sector have a total market capitalization of USD197.4 trillion. The average P/E is 21.58 and the dividend yield amounts to 3.28 percent. The highest-yielding industries are still business equipment and cigarettes.

Cigarettes and tobacco companies have the highest share in my private portfolio. They represent around 25 percent of my assets, and they are also one of my biggest dividend contributors over the year.

However, 396 stocks are available for trading with a relation to the consumer sector. Of them, 185 pay dividends and 123 have a current buy or better rating. Below is a small list of the 20 higher capitalized companies (over USD2 billion) with the highest buy rating. Most of the results are low yielding but the expected growth rates for the next years look fantastic. Dare a glance and let me know in the comment area which of the stocks you like most.
