Best Dividend Paying Healthcare Stocks Researched By “long-term-investments.blogspot.com”. The healthcare sector is a great investment field with fantastic growth potential. The whole sector has a total market capitalization of USD 43.18 trillion and summarizes 543 companies. The average dividend yield amounts to 3.34 percent and the P/E ratio is 22.59. In order to find the best dividend paying stocks within the sector, I screened all companies with a positive dividend yield, great earnings per share growth of more than five percent and an operating margin over 15 percent.

In order get the best results in terms of low debt and high cash, the debt to equity ratio should be under 0.5. Sixteen healthcare companies remain of which four yielding over three percent and thirteen are currently recommended to buy. Here are my favorite stocks: Covidien (COV), Stryker Corporation (SYK), Zimmer Holdings (ZMH) and The Cooper Companies (COO).
