Healthcare Dividend Stocks With Highest Short Float Ratio Researched By Dividend Yield - Stock, Capital, Investment. The healthcare sector is a major business. At the stock markets are 551 companies linked to the sector with a total market capitalization of USD 40.4 trillion. The average sector yield amounts to 3.93 percent and the average P/E ratio is 22.31.

I screened the sector by dividend stocks with the highest amount of short selling stocks, measured by the short float ratio. The ratio shows how many stocks are shorted by investors. Companies with a high ratio of short float have a little upside potential if investors need to close their short position. Twelve dividend stocks from the healthcare sector have a short float ratio of more than 5 percent and six are recommended to buy.
