Healthcare dividend stocks with highest performance year-to-date originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". We've completed the month June and it's time to report which stocks have risen most within the first six months of the year. It's ever good to see which shares stocks are hot in the market and which of them are still cheap valuated.

That's the main reason why I like to produce an article serial with performance figures of the best performing stocks from several sectors of the financial market.

Today I like to screen the healthcare sector by dividend stocks with the highest stock performance since the beginning of the year.

The 20 most successful companies have realized a performance between 22.01 percent and 73.98 percent. The average capital gain was 36.24 percent. Despite the strong stock price hike, seventeen of them still have a buy or better rating.

Here is the full table with some fundamentals:

Take a closer look at the full list. The average P/E ratio amounts to 26.33 and forward P/E ratio is 16.64. The dividend yield has a value of 4.07 percent. Price to book ratio is 2.98 and price to sales ratio 3.77. The operating margin amounts to 27.08 percent and the beta ratio is 0.40. Stocks from the list have an average debt to equity ratio of 1.26.
