My 4 Favorite Consumer Dividend Stocks with Safe Haven Shaping

Today I close my monthly screen theme, “the safest dividend stocks,” with the consumer goods sector.

Consumer goods stocks are one of my favorite sectors because of the strong relationship to the end-consumer. As a result, sales and earnings are less volatile than in other sectors. Not enough, most of them are great long-term dividend plays. From 390 stocks, 193 pay dividends. That’s a pretty good ratio.

However, below is a list of the best-yielding large-cap consumer dividend stocks with a volatility lower than the overall market.

It’s not surprising that the big tobacco companies are on the top results. You can hate them or not, but they are still some of the safest dividend stocks on the market. Below the top 20 results are three high-yields. Eleven are recommended to buy.
