Consumer dividend stocks with cheap price ratios originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". I love consumer dividend stocks. Nearly 60 of my own stock allocation have a relationship to the sector. For sure they also got a very low performance compared to other stocks but they give me somehow stability and trust to invest bigger amounts of money into stocks.
A few years before, I purchased consumer stocks for an average yield of 3.5 percent. Today the sector is traded at a yield ratio of 2.78 percent despite the fact that they have raised year over year their dividends. Also consumer stocks getting more expensive and the only reason for this development is the expansive monetary policy.
Today I like to go forward with my monthly screens of the cheapest dividend stocks measured by the lowest forward P/E. The 20 cheapest stocks with a higher market capitalization are valuated between 7.8 and 12.5. Only one High-Yield is part of the results. Nearly all companies (17) are currently recommended to buy.
Here is the full table with some fundamentals:
Take a closer look at the full list. The average P/E ratio amounts to 16.80 and forward P/E ratio is 10.61. The dividend yield has a value of 2.13 percent. Price to book ratio is 4.34 and price to sales ratio 0.81. The operating margin amounts to 8.47 percent and the beta ratio is 1.56. Stocks from the list have an average debt to equity ratio of 3.86. Excluded by the high value of PBI, the ratio amounts to 0.84.
