12 Consumer Goods Stocks with Huge Dividend Potential

You know that I love stocks from the consumer goods sector because there are so many companies with a high-quality and low-cyclic business model. Around three quarters of my investments have a deep relationship to the consumer sector.

Today I would like to finish my monthly screen about low debt stocks with small dividend payouts. I’ve tried to compile the top picks from the major capital sectors with high potential of a growing dividend.

The consumer sector offers 12 stocks with a low dividend payout of less than 20 percent combined with a debt to equity ratio below 0.2. Nine of them have a current buy or better rating by brokerage firms.

I own none of the mentioned stocks. This could be reasonable to the fact that most of the results have a very small market capitalization. I do love big companies with strong cash flows and high market entry barriers but those also have high debt burdens.

Here are the three biggest results:

Ralph Lauren (RL)
has a market capitalization of $14.36 billion. The company employs 14,000 people, generates revenue of $6.944 billion and has a net income of $750.00 million. Ralph Lauren’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounts to $1.389 billion. The EBITDA margin is 20.01 percent (the operating margin is 16.22 percent and the net profit margin 10.80 percent).

Financial Analysis: The total debt represents 5.63 percent of Ralph Lauren’s assets and the total debt in relation to the equity amounts to 8.06 percent. Due to the financial situation, a return on equity of 20.17 percent was realized by Ralph Lauren. Twelve trailing months earnings per share reached a value of $7.91. Last fiscal year, Ralph Lauren paid $1.60 in the form of dividends to shareholders.

Market Valuation: Here are the price ratios of the company: The P/E ratio is 20.07, the P/S ratio is 2.10 and the P/B ratio is finally 3.87. The dividend yield amounts to 0.99 percent and the beta ratio has a value of 1.46.

Fortune Brands Home & Security (FBHS) has a market capitalization of $6.39 billion. The company employs 16,100 people, generates revenue of $3.591 billion and has a net income of $119.70 million. Fortune Brands Home & Security’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounts to $283.30 million.

Gildan Activewear (GIL) has a market capitalization of $5.57 billion. The company employs 30,000 people, generates revenue of $1.948 billion and has a net income of $148.46 million.
