19 Consumer Dividend Stocks With Highest Sector Growth

Consumer dividend stocks with highest expected growth originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". Growth, that’s the most important factor when you trade stocks and like to make money over the long-run.

Growth is a must have but with rising growth rates, price ratios also go up. You should be careful with stocks that have a P/E ratio over 20 and a huge load of debt.

Today, I like to screen stocks from the consumer goods sector, one of my favorite investment fields. 2/3 of my personal stock holdings have a relation to the consumer area. I love those stocks especially when they are well managed and pay great dividends.

Consumer stocks are normally characterized by low cyclic stocks which produce solid returns on the invested capital. My screening criteria are:

- Positive Dividend Yield
- Market Capitalization over 10 billion
- Relationship to the Consumer Goods Sector
- EPS Growth over 10 Percent for the next 5 Years

Nineteen stocks matched my criteria of which fifteen have a current buy or better ratio. Car maker and supplier of them are dominating the results. Those are also stocks with the highest beta ratios.

Here are my favorite stocks:
