20 Attactive Low Volatility Consumer Goods Stocks

When I'm thinking about how to arrange a portfolio, I think there is a uniquely human aspect to the process.

The ideal dividend portfolio depends on the risk factors an investor feels comfortable accepting. 

After the year is over, any investor can easily see which companies delivered the best returns, but when the period is starting, the goal is for an investor is to be carrying a portfolio that meets their individual objectives.

This piece is going to focus on the dividend champions of the consumer staples sector.

Given the relatively high valuation of the market, I believe it is more rational to focus investments on sectors with less volatility in their ability to generate sales.

Attached you will find a compilation of stocks from the consumer goods sector with solid yields, modest growth predictions and low beta ratios.

These are my favorites...
