    Best Dividend Stocks From The Services Sector Researched By "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". Stocks from the services sector are important for a consumer based economy like the United States Economy. At the capital markets are 899 stocks available with a relationship to service. The whole market capitalization of them amounts to USD 50.88 trillion. The average dividend yield has a value of 1.84 percent and the P/E ratio is 20.14.

    In order to find the best dividend paying large cap growth stocks from the investment class, I screened all companies with a positive dividend yield, great earnings per share growth of more than 10 percent and an operating margin over 15 percent. To get the best results in terms of low debt and high cash, the debt to equity ratio should be under 0.5. Finally, the market capitalization should be above USD 2 billion. Thirteen services stocks remained of which eleven are currently recommended to buy.

    Here is the full table with some fundamentals:
