Introduction to the Industrial Sector
The Industrial sector is primarily comprised of companies that produce goods used in construction and manufacturing. Some of the key subsectors include aerospace and defense, construction and engineering, building products and industrial conglomerates. For the most part, these are capital-intensive industries that often operate on low or even razor thin net margins. Consequently, profitability can be very erratic from one year to the next. Therefore, although there are exceptions, finding quality buy-and-hold dividend growth stocks in this sector is tricky.
