    Financial dividend stocks with highest performance year-to-date originally published at long-term-investments.blogspot.com. Today I would like to discover the financial sector by the best performing dividend stocks. Financial companies are in focus of main street investors.

    We live in a span of a financial bubble and financial services stocks, banks as well as insurer are the main provider for the financial system. Not all of them benefited from the money easing by the fed but in some cases you can see a definitely increase in the company's balance sheet. The risks rose and yields went down over the recent years. Today, we need much more money to receive the same capital income as 10 years before.

    I personally do not own banks or insurer. I still have no opinion or idea about how they could reduce their risk exposure in the financial market. They are real black boxes for me.

    However, the 20 best performing financial dividend stocks with a market capitalization over USD 300 million gained 54.50 percent to 97.22 percent since the beginning of the year. Nine of the results still have a buy or better recommendation.

    Here is the full table with some fundamentals:

    Take a closer look at the full list. The average P/E ratio amounts to 24.73 and forward P/E ratio is 18.31. The dividend yield has a value of 2.06 percent. Price to book ratio is 5.49 and price to sales ratio 5.84. The operating margin amounts to 32.08 percent and the beta ratio is 1.42. Stocks from the list have an average debt to equity ratio of 0.41.
