19 Consumer Dividend Stocks with Highest Sector Growth

Growth is a must have but with rising growth rates, price ratios also go up. You should be careful with stocks that have a P/E ratio over 20 and a huge load of debt.

Today, I would like to screen stocks from the consumer goods sector, one of my favorite investment fields. Two-thirds of my personal stock holdings have a relation to the consumer area. I love those stocks especially when they are well managed and pay great dividends.

Consumer stocks are normally characterized by low cyclic stocks which produce solid returns on the invested capital. My screening criteria are:

- Positive Dividend Yield

- Market Capitalization over 10 billion

- Relationship to the Consumer Goods Sector

- EPS Growth over 10 Percent for the next 5 Years

Nineteen stocks matched my criteria of which fifteen have a current buy or better ratio. Car maker and supplier of them are dominating the results. Those are also stocks with the highest beta ratios.
