Consumer Dividend Stocks With Highest Float Short Ratios

Consumer goods dividend stocks with highest float short ratios originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". Consumer goods stocks are often the most preferred source for dividend growth investors. I don’t know why but the consumer sector has the largest amount of stocks with a solid dividend history. They are less volatile and work with good margins. For sure, the growth perspectives are not a good as for technology stocks and the debt is also everything else than slim but they are still attractive.

Despite the huge number of pessimistic investors, analysts recommended 13 of the results.
