Financial dividend stocks with best yields and high growth rates originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". The financial sector is one of the biggest sectors where you can find stocks or asset vehicles to place your money. Roughly 2,800 stocks and funds are listed with a financial relationship. Only 724 of them are dividend stocks.
I personally do not invest into funds. I also put no money into ETFs because my major job is stock research and asset allocation for my own money. I like to eliminate the good stocks from the bad ones. Funds and ETFs put all stocks into a basket. They diversify money by covering indices they have bought from other financial service providers. I don't know how they select these assets and I will never trust them. It's my money and I am responsible the return in the end.
Today, I like to go forward with my monthly dividend screen of the best yielding growth stocks for the mid-term. Linked is a small list of the 20 best yielding financial stocks with double-digit earnings growth forecast for the next five years. Because of the high number of results, I decided to exclude all stocks with a market capitalization below USD 10 billion. Ten of the results 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 19.10 and forward P/E ratio is 18.91. The dividend yield has a value of 2.99 percent. Price to book ratio is 1.70 and price to sales ratio 4.68. The operating margin amounts to 21.60 percent and the beta ratio is 1.65. Stocks from the list have an average debt to equity ratio of 0.94.
