Consumer goods dividend stocks with highest year-to-date performance originally published at long-term-investments.blogspot.com. Consumer dividend stocks are my favorite investments when I think about how to make money on the stock market. I prefer those stocks because of the low cyclic they have. Most of them generate stable cash flows and pay good dividends as well as buy own shares back. Not to forget: They still have possibilities to grow in a developed market.
Today I would close my monthly screening serial of the best performing dividend stocks from several sectors with the consumer goods sector. These are the latest articles of the serial:
The 20 best performing dividend stocks with a market capitalization over USD 200 million gained from 44.89 percent to 112.16 percent this year. The best performing non dividend paying stock is more an industrial stock than a consumer company. It's the electric vehicle producer Tesla. The company's stock price quadrupled since the start of the year. The top dividend payer is the multi-marketing level company Nu Skin Enterprises.
Despite the strong stock price increase, 16 of the top 20 performing sector dividend stocks still have a buy or better rating.
Here is the full table with some fundamentals:
