Utility Dividend Stocks With Highest Short Float Ratio Researched By Dividend Yield - Stock, Capital, Investment. Utilities are normally stable dividend payer with low growth and high debt. At the stock markets are 122 companies linked to the sector with a total market capitalization of USD 18.4 trillion. The average sector yield amounts to 4.11 percent (highest yields are paid by gas and diversified utilities) and the average P/E ratio is 15.44.

I screened the sector by dividend stocks with the highest amount of short selling stocks, measured by the short float ratio. The ratio shows how many stocks are shorted by investors. Companies with a high ratio of short float have a little upside potential if investors need to close their short position.
