    Dividend Stocks From The Service Sector With Highest Short Float Ratio Researched By Dividend Yield - Stock, Capital, Investment. The services sector is the second basic stage of the economy behind the agricultural. Stocks from the sector are characterized by low margins and undercapitalized business models.

    At the stock markets are 908 companies linked to the sector with a total market capitalization of USD 48.2 trillion. The average sector yield amounts to 1.92 percent and the average P/E ratio is 20.11. The highest dividend paying industries are consumer services, publishing and computer wholesale.

    I screened the sector by dividend stocks with the highest amount of short selling stocks, measured by the float short ratio. The ratio shows how many stocks are shorted by investors. Companies with a high ratio of float short have a little upside potential if investors need to close their short position. Thirteen dividend stocks from the services sector have a float short ratio of more than 25 percent.

    Here is the full table with some fundamentals:

Price to book ratio is 6.14 and price to sales ratio 0.47. The operating margin amounts to 2.38 percent and the beta ratio is 1.59. The average stock is shorted by 37.00 percent.
