4 Cheapest Industrial Dividend Payer with Highest YTD Performance

Warren Buffett likes industrials, not as much as consumer or health care stocks, but he owns a few players from the sector. I own some good names from the Dividend Champions list and am happy that I have purchased them a few years before.

Today I would like to screen the investment sector by the best-performing dividend stocks since the beginning of the year. Below is a detailed view of the cheapest results.

The 20 industrial dividend stocks with highest year-to-date performance generated a return between 37.67 percent and 129.11. Small and mid-cap stocks are the performance driver of the year. Thirteen of the results have a market capitalization below USD2 billion.

The whole sector is up 13.8 percent over the recent six months, the third best value on the capital market. I believe that stocks with a good stock performance are healthy. Capital investors are confident about the future prospects of the company and they like to pay a higher price to participate in the future of the business.

Not all of the best performing stocks are now expensive. Thirteen of the results have a low forward P/E and 10 are currently recommended to buy.
