The 25 Best Healthcare Dividend Stocks For 2020

25 awesome Healthcare stocks that pay frequent dividends. Updated daily!

High Dividend Paying Healthcare Stocks

According to Yardeni Research, healthcare stocks were the best sector in the S&P 500 during 2018.

While the sector’s 4.7% gain last year didn’t exactly fund anyone’s retirement plan, it was one of only two sectors in the S&P 500 that finished in the black for 2018.

With some uncertainty in the economy, and projected growth shrinking in 2019, healthcare stocks can be a good choice for investors.

The healthcare industry is heavily regulated, which limits some of the growth potential of these companies. But healthcare companies usually offer a great dividend, and dividend growth is typically strong within the industry.

Because of the built-in demand for healthcare, these companies are also less impacted by recessions and other market downturns.

As we all know, even in a bad market we still need healthcare!

There are many healthcare stocks you can research and analyze.

In this list, we analyzed and screened for companies with low debt/equity ratios, strong liquidity, low payout ratios, and high dividend yields.To get this list, we used the DiscoverCI Stock Screener and scanned for stocks with the following metrics:

  • Currently paying a dividend,
  • Dividend payout ratio less than 100% (indicates the Company isn’t paying more than 100% of its income in dividends),
  • Marketcap over $200 million (more stable companies), and 
  • Current Ratio greater than 1.50% (less liquidity risk).

The list is sorted by dividend yield from high to low, and our analysis is updated daily. Here are 25 best healthcare dividend stocks.
