Best-In-Class Materials Dividend Stocks

Tammie Asher

A favourable economic condition has been a large driver of growth for companies in the materials industry.

Commodity prices are also a key determinant of these companies’ earnings, which in turn drives dividend payout and yield. Below is my list of huge dividend-paying stocks in the materials industry that continues to add value to my portfolio holdings.
