Best Industrial Goods Stock Picks For 2013 | High Growth at Top Margins

The best industrial growth picks for 2013 originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com" Everybody likes to invest in well growing companies with strong brands and big cash flows, free for distributing to shareholders via share buybacks or dividend payments. The best stocks to buy are not only the cheapest shares with a low P/E or a high dividend yield. Good stocks are also those with a great track record in terms of industry growth and future growth prospects. Now, we are close to year-end and I like to discover some growth stock picks for next year 2013. Today, I focus on stocks from the industrial goods sector (354 shares available). These are my criteria:

- Forward P/E under 15
- Past 5Y Sales growth over 10 percent
- Earnings per share growth for the next five years over 10 percent
- Operating Margin over 10 percent

Sixteen companies fulfilled the above mentioned criteria. Eight of them pay dividends and fourteen have a current buy or better recommendation. The two best represented industries within the screening results are aerospace/defense and industrial equipments.

Here are the 3 best yielding dividend stocks:

    I doubt I need to sell income seekers on the importance of dividend growth since that is what it usually takes to entice someone to invest in stocks rather than bonds. But how do you identify good dividend-growth candidates? Is the industrial sector the real one to search for opportunities?
