The Best Consumer Goods Stocks To Buy
The Best Yielding Consumer Goods Shares With Low P/E ratio Originally Published At "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". I personally like consumer goods stocks because they have a relationship to the customer, directly not indirect. My most favorite stocks produce daily goods like food or toothpaste maybe beauty and 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 Colgate. 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 is the full table with some fundamentals:

Price to book ratio is 1.75 and price to sales ratio 0.87. The operating margin amounts to 9.92 percent. The average stock has a debt to equity ratio of 1.25. The high leverage is explainable with Fords figure of 5.34. If we exclude this value, the average leverage amounts to 0.74.
