20 Dividend Stocks With The Highest Buy Rating | Compilation Of The Best Services Stocks

Most recommended dividend stocks from the services sector originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". Today I like to go forward with my best stock recommendation list for January 2013 and I analyze the services sector. 

The services sector has 888 companies listed of which 348 pay dividends and 213 are recommended to buy now.

The total market capitalization of all stocks amounts to USD 56.93 trillion dollar. An average stock from the sector has a dividend yield of 1.72 percent and is valuated with a P/E of 20.10. The best yielding industries are Consumer Services and Electronic Stores which is followed by Computers Wholesale.

I made a screen of the 20 most recommended and higher capitalized stocks with positive dividend payments. Two high-yields are part of the results.

Here are my favorite stocks:

  2. I don't own MA and V. It shows that I believe they are too expensive.

    I have some shares of WU. WU is definitly cheaper but I don't think that the business models comparable.

  3. Hey Tom how are you. My pick out of your list would be $CVS. Because of the growth of new stores that I see just in my area ( Pennsylvania ) if I do a search for a 25 mile area over 10 stores come up within 15 miles and 20 within 25 miles. Of course I'm close to New Jersey so that includes 2 states. Are their stores in Europe
