Dividend stocks from the services sector with very low forward P/E ratios originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". Today I like to resume my monthly screen series of the cheapest dividend stocks. Now, the services sector is subject of my analysis. A high dividend is not the solution for a return. The valuation also matters.
Because of the high amount of results, I observed only large cap stocks. The top 20 results are valuated between 9.75 and 13.41. Two of the results have a yield over three percent and 14 are currently recommended to buy.
Here is the full table with some fundamentals:
Take a closer look at the full list. The average P/E ratio amounts to 15.25 and forward P/E ratio is 11.66. The dividend yield has a value of 2.08 percent. Price to book ratio is 3.28 and price to sales ratio 1.19. The operating margin amounts to 12.59 percent and the beta ratio is 1.06. Stocks from the list have an average debt to equity ratio of 0.87.
