    Stocks from the basic material sector with highest buy rating originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". We all want to make profits from stock trading and we have a clear focus on dividends because the regular payments are a great cash source for new investments. Beyond, the dividend payments hedge us against stock price losses.

    Today I like to progress with my January serial "most recommended stocks" and I like to go forward with the basic material sector. Out there are around listed 600 companies linked to the basic material sector. The sector was last year the worst performing category with an increase of 4.6 percent.

    It looks that investors avoid cyclic stocks. But the basic material sector has more to offer. I talk about the possibility of high scalable profits. It all depends mainly on China and how fast the economy could recover. For the time being there are no greater sings for a gaining momentum.

    However, below is a small list of the 20 most recommended basic material stocks with a higher capitalization (over USD 2 billion); fifteen of the best buy rated raw material companies pay dividends and four have a high yield (over five percent).

    Here is the full table with some fundamentals:

    Take a closer look at the full list. The average P/E ratio amounts to 19.60 and forward P/E ratio is 18.17. The dividend yield has a value of 2.66 percent. Price to book ratio is 3.14 and price to sales ratio 2.39. The operating margin amounts to 17.43 percent and the beta ratio is 1.57. Stocks from the list have an average debt to equity ratio of 0.99.
