    The Best Yielding Shares from the Business Services Sector Originally Published At "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". An interesting industry is in my view the business services industry. Nearly 100 companies are related to the sector of which only 30 pay dividends to its shareholders. The total capitalization of the sector amounts to $7.25 trillion. The average dividend yield within the industry amounts to 25.4 and the yield reach 1.1 percent.

    I like the industry because of the high profit margins, which corresponds at 10.20 percent and is one of the highest values in the sector. The most known stocks are Visa (V), MasterCard (MA) and Moody's (MCO). Business service is often financial networked.

    I made a screen of the best yielding stocks within the business services industry. In order to reduce the huge amount of 30 dividend paying business service stocks, I selected only those with double-digit earnings per share growth. As a result, sixteen stocks remain of which market analysts trust in eleven companies and recommend them to buy now.

    Here is the full table with some fundamentals:
