These 20 Stocks Are The Best Healthcare Growth Picks
Healthcare dividend stocks with best yields and big growth perspectives originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". The healthcare sector is one of my favorite sectors behind the consumer goods sector. I love stocks from the medical equipment and appliances industry. Sure they offer a lower dividend but most of the stocks are major diversified in terms of international sales and they have a wonderful growth perspective.
Stocks from the whole healthcare sector have a total market capitalization of USD 66.298 billion. The average stock from the sector has a P/E of 26.63 and yield at 3.32 percent. These are very attractive figures from the earnings perspective. Debt is also high with a long-term debt to equity ratio of 88.63. As a result, the return on equity amounts to 17.61 percent.
Today I like to show you the best yielding healthcare growth opportunities at the market. I screened all healthcare stocks with a positive dividend payment and double-digit earnings per share growth for the next five years.
Nearly 40 companies fulfilled these criteria but some of them pay only very low dividends. Below is a small list of 20 stocks with the highest yield. Eleven of the results have a buy or better rating.
Here is the full table with some fundamentals:
