The Most Recommended Consumer Goods Stocks | 20 Dividend Stocks With Highest Buy Rating

Most recommended consumer goods dividend stocks originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". Today I like to screen one of my favorite investment sectors, the consumer goods sector. I want to show you who are the best, higher yielding dividend stocks with a buy or better rating.

Stocks from the sector have a total market capitalization of USD 197.4 trillion. The average P/E is 21.58 and the dividend yield amounts to 3.28 percent. The highest yielding industries are still business equipments and cigarettes.


Cigarettes and tobacco companies have the highest share in my private portfolio. They represent around 25 percent of my assets and they are also one of my biggest dividend contributors over the year.


However, 396 stocks are available for trading with a relation to the consumer sector. 185 of them pay dividends and 123 have a current buy or better rating. Below is a small list of the 20 higher capitalized companies (over USD 2 billion) with the highest buy rating. Most of the results are low yielding but the expected growth rates for the next years look fantastic. Dare a glance and let me know in the comment area which of the stocks you like most.


Here are my favorite stocks:

    Not everyone prefers high yields, high stakes investing. Some have a disposition that prefers reliable and consistent payouts.

    Many investors are hungry for income in a low interest rate world. Investors are also looking for relative safety and dividend stocks tend to be more stable than stocks that pay no dividend. This is another reason why dividend stock investing makes sense in these volatile markets. The average yield for a stock in the S&P 500 Index is just over 2%. What do you think?

    Because BTI...dont you think they will get huge problems in future? Russia wants a high tax.

  3. Sure the whole tobacco industry is under pressure and gets more and more fire. But China is the key for growth. Russia is not the world and BTI is one of the most diversifed tobacco companies in the world beside Philip Morris International.

  5. Thanks, my thoughts are similar. Not enough, I have big positons in tobacco stocks and don't like more single risks on my accounts. I am really happy with my past performance. Most of my tobacco stocks doubled since I bought them.

  6. You have very wealthy useful content that is really exciting to many visitors. I seriously appreciate your work. "You know, I think of the global economic system as an upside down triangle, resting on the shoulders of the United States customer. And if the United states customer cannot have enough non reusable income to keep a quality lifestyle that makes more opportunities generation after generation, that's bad for everybody.
