Dividends4Life: Basic Material Dividend Stocks With Top Yields And Low Volatility

When I buy stocks I ever take a look at the risk fundamentals of a company. Beside the market capitalization, the beta ratio is a meaningful ratio. The ratio shows investors how volatile a stock is compared to the overall market. A beta value of 1.2 means: The stock has a 20% higher volatility than the market. I use this tool to identify the underlying risks of a business model. For sure, it’s not perfect but a good first step to evaluate the risk situation.

Today I'd like to run my screen for the safest basic material stocks. These are my criteria: 1. Market Capitalization over $10 billion USD and 2. Beta ratio below 1. Linked are the 20 best yielding stocks. Fourteen of them have a current buy or better recommendation and five are high-yields. Oil and gas companies are the dominating category. Here are my favorite stocks: Kinder Morgan Energy Partners (KMP), Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Syngenta AG (SYT).
