Industrial goods stocks with highest buy rating originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". Today I like to finalize my January posts of the highest recommended stocks from the most important 8 sectors of the economy. Industrial goods are the latest sector to discover.
The sector is a small one with 359 related companies and only 172 of them are dividend stocks. The average dividend yield amounts to 2.01 and the P/E ratio has a value of 24.59.
I personally have only a small share of industrial stocks in my private portfolios. The main reason is that the sector has many cyclic companies and stocks from the sector are often very capital intensive. They need huge amounts of money to keep the business running and growing. As a result, dividend payments are low.
But there are also some great growth stories. I own shares of United Technologies, Lockheed Martin and Raytheon. My biggest position is General Electric on which I have 104% unrealized gains. Not enough, I have around 10 -20 additional stocks on my watch list.
Below is a small compilation of the 20 highest recommended dividend stocks with a market capitalization over USD 2 billion. What do you think about the list of the most recommended industrial goods dividend stocks? Do you own some of them? Please let me know and leave a comment in the box below.
