13 Highest Dividend Paying Grocery Stores

High dividend paying grocery store stocks originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". A very interesting investment field is to buy chains. Every company has a chain but I don’t talk about the relationship structures of a company when they buy commodities, manufacture products and sell them in the end to customers. I talk about store systems like McDonalds or Wal-Mart. For sure, these are two very successful chains with strong brands and lot’s of value. Normally a smaller chain has no big values.

To buy a store system is a way to make fast money because a profitable concept can be copied all over the world in a very short time. All you need is the right location to expand your selling space. Think about Starbucks and how they work. The critical point is if your business concept will be accepted by different cultures and if your customers are loyal to your products when competition rises. All will be measured in the ratio “Same Store Sales”. That’s a figure which counts the percentage sales increase of older stores space (because a new opened store has higher sales in the first six month).

Today I like to look at the grocery stores industry. The average dividend yield of grocery stores is 1.46% and the P/E ratio is around 35. Linked is a small list of the highest dividend paying grocery store concepts which you can buy at the market.

13 grocery stores pay dividends of which one is a High-Yield. Six of the results are recommended to buy.
