17 Cheap Growth Stocks From The Basic Material Sector With Current Dividend Payments

Basic material dividend stocks with highest expected growth and low price ratios originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". Good stocks to buy are hard to find. But what are good stocks?

Good investment indicators

Primarily it’s a question of your investment philosophy or screening criteria. I am focused on dividend stocks with great yields, strong market positions and low limitations to grow. I also invest into stocks with no yields or low dividend payments.

Don’t look at the yield alone

The dividend yield is only an expression and should never be a single investment criterion. I know so many people who only look at the P/E ratio and the dividend yield and argue that the stock is cheap at a P/E below 10. That’s too easy. If the company has no debt, you should look the enterprise value.

Growth is the value driver

More important is growth. If a company doubles every 3 years sales and earnings, it’s normal that the stock is highly valuated. Stock valuation is a very complex area.

Today I like to screen some opportunities from the basic material sector. 595 stocks are available with a relationship to the raw material sector – nearly 300 of them pay dividends. The average sector P/E ratio amounts to 11.08 at a yield of 2.98 percent.

I screened large capitalized stocks with very high expected earnings per share growth for the next five years (over 10 percent) and a low forward P/E ratio of less than 15. Seventeen stocks fulfilled my criteria of which twelve are currently recommended to buy. Two High-Yields are below the results.

Here are my favorite stocks:
