Stocks from the consumer goods sector are characterized by a lower cyclic business model. In times of crises, they should give you a higher stability for your portfolio. The whole sector contains 419 companies which have a total market capitalization of $117.3 trillion. The average P/E ratio amounts to 13.8, and the average dividend yield has a value of 1.84 percent. The whole sector is also characterized by low price to book ratios. If we buy stocks for less than the book value, we get real bargains in terms of reproduction value. The company’s equity is much higher than the current price at the market. I screened all stocks from the consumer goods sector with a current market capitalization below the accounted book value (price to book ratio of less than one). 118 stocks fulfilled these criteria. In order to eliminate the risk of small capitalized stocks, I decided to screen only stocks with a market capitalization of more than $2 billion (midcaps). 10 stocks remained. These are the results:
