The Best Consumer Dividend Stocks

Consumer Goods Dividend Stocks With High Return On Investments And Big Operating Margins Researched By Dividend Yield - Stock, Capital, Investment. Consumer goods stocks are of low volatility.

I screened the consumer goods sector by stocks with an operating margin and return on investment over 15 percent. In addition, the stock should have a minimum dividend yield of two percent. Fifteen companies fulfilled these criteria of which two are high yields.

Here are my favorite stocks:

  1. Although coca cola may be a very good quality stock. I would prefer the beverage company called cot corporation their a private label beverage company. Their line of products includes RC cola. Walmart is a major customer. I bought some of the stock at just 40 cents a share in 2009 today its trading at 6.50 the company does over 2 billion dollars in annual sales.
