    Largest Dividend Stocks From The Services Sector Researched By "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". Service is good. A wealthy economy has a highly developed consumer based economy with a large service sector. In America, 897 companies with a stock market listing are available for investors. They all together have a market capitalization of USD 53.37 trillion. The average P/E-ratio within the sector amounts to 19.94 and the dividend yield has a value of 1.81 percent.
