    The Best Dividend Paying Basic Material Stocks with High Growth and Low Debt

    From GuruFocus

    The basic material sector is a great investment field with fantastic growth potential if the economy starts to recover. The whole sector has a total market capitalization of USD210.91 trillion and summarizes 604 companies. The average dividend yield amounts to 3.23 percent and the P/E ratio is 13.51.

    In order to find the best dividend paying stocks within the sector, I screened all companies with a positive dividend yield, great earnings per share growth of more than 15 percent and an operating margin over 20 percent. To get the best results in terms of low debt and high cash, the debt to equity ratio should be under 0.4. Eighteen basic material companies remained of which three yielding over three percent and sixteen are currently recommended to buy.
