Basic Materials Sector Stocks

Basic materials companies engage in the exploration, production, and development of natural resources. These companies vary widely, but many times target a specific resource, such as gold, silver, or oil. Basic materials firms may also run refineries and plants to develop refined materials from the basic natural resources. The dividend yields of basic materials companies vary widely and can be volatile due to changing commodity prices. Generally, the sector offers dividend yields that are above-average when compared with the wider market, mostly because of the large number of high-yielding Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs) within the group.
