The best dividend paying stocks from the major drug manufacturing industry originally published at “long-term-investments.blogspot.com“. The healthcare sector is another great investment field for me. I mainly like it because of the ongoing aging population. The older people are, the more healthcare they need. The big problem is that most of the people don’t have saved enough money to finance all their health services and products – The government must care for it and makes it via health care plans, insurance, hospitals, education and so on. This means also a state related dependence for the investor.

One of the best yielding industries within the healthcare sector is the major drug manufacturing industry. The average yield amounts to 3.85 percent and the P/E’s on a level of 18.0. The industry has exactly 10 dividend stocks and is still the biggest investment field followed by a ten times smaller Biotechnology industry. I believe that the bioteches will perform better and catch up to the leading industry unless the old drug companies will not overtake them. The reason is simple: They are more innovative.

However, below is a small list of the best dividend paying major drug manufacturing stocks. From 10 stocks have seven with a buy or even better rating. Despite the great predictions of decreasing sales and earnings due to patent losses, growth is still forecasted for the most of the drug dividend stocks.
