The Best Consumer Goods Stocks To Buy | 10 Cheap Dividend Stocks

 November 14, 2012 05:33 PM
 


I personally like consumer goods stocks because they have a deep relationship to the customer, directly and not indirect. My most favorite stocks produce daily goods like food or toothpaste maybe beauty or health products. They are well diversified and generate ideally more than 50 percent of their revenues outside the United States. I think about companies like Procter and Gamble or ColgatePalmolive. Other stocks are PepsiCo and Coca Cola. They all raised dividends over a very long period and helped to boost my dividend income. Let's take a look into the sector and hunt for some bargains.

I screened the sector by the best yielding stocks with a low P/E ratio (value of less than 15). As result, ten stocks remain of which two are high-yields and seven are recommended to buy. The dominant industry in the screen is the auto manufacturing industry. The market sees a high profit slowdown. For the time being, earnings growth rate for those auto stocks are still attractive. But the time will change. Also remarkable is the high debt ratios of the car stocks. I personally don't like those companies and wouldn't recommend them to buy.

Here are my favorite stocks:

Mattel (NASDAQ: MAT) has a market capitalization of $12.18 billion. The company employs 28,000 people, generates revenue of $6.266 billion and has a net income of $768.51 million.
