3 Cheapest Basic Material Dividend Stocks with Highest YTD Performance

Basic material stocks were the real losing stock category this year. They are down 2.6 percent this year while the best performing sector, health care stocks, gained 24.3 percent.

But not all basic materials are losers. There are stocks that doubled in price since the beginning of this year. Others are up 50 percent. Below, you can find a small list of the 20 top basic material stocks. I excluded all companies with a market capitalization below USD300 million and those without a dividend.

The 20 top dividend paying results gained from 44.58 percent to 65.14 percent. Three of the results have a market cap below a billion and additional seven are valuated between $1 billion or $2 billion. Small and mid-cap stocks are the main performance driver of the sector. Despite the strong stock price hikes, 14 companies still have a buy or better rating.
