20 Cheapest Dividend Paying Stocks From The Services Sector

Dividend stocks from the services sector with very low forward P/E ratios originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". Today I like to resume my monthly screen series of the cheapest dividend stocks. Now, the services sector is subject of my analysis. A high dividend is not the solution for a return. The valuation also matters.

Because of the high amount of results, I observed only large cap stocks. The top 20 results are valuated between 9.75 and 13.41. Two of the results have a yield over three percent and 14 are currently recommended to buy.


Here are my favorite stocks:
