  • 12 Healthcare Dividend Stocks With High Potential To Boost Growth And Hike Dividends 0 comments

    Healthcare dividend stocks with low payout ratios and debt figures originally published at long-term-investments.blogspot.com. I love the combination of low debt with little payout ratios.

    The debt situation is one of the most important issues in corporate finance. It also expresses the ability to grow sales and earnings by leveraging the balance sheet.

    Only a low leveraged corporate has potential to boost sales without taking new investors into the boat that dilute the current earnings per share.

    Today I would like to start an article serial about low leveraged stocks from several sectors with currently small dividend payouts. I believe it's good to see what companies have the biggest potential to give shareholders huge amounts of money back in the near future and believe me, the tech sector is not the only place to be.

    My criteria are a low dividend payout ratio of less than 20 percent as well as a debt-to-equity ratio under 0.5. Only twelve stocks fulfilled these very tight defined criteria.

    One result is a High-Yield and nine stocks are recommended to buy or better. Most of the results come from the medical appliances & supplies or equipment industry.

    Here is the full table with some fundamentals:

    Take a closer look at the full list. The average P/E ratio amounts to 20.22 and forward P/E ratio is 17.66. The dividend yield has a value of 1.16 percent. Price to book ratio is 2.90 and price to sales ratio 3.76. The operating margin amounts to 23.72 percent and the beta ratio is 0.75. Stocks from the list have an average debt to equity ratio of 0.22.
