People love it to watch stocks that are going up and never stop to rise. In my blog "long-term-investments.blogspot.com" I present on a regular basis some interesting stocks at new 52-Week Highs or even better, stocks at All-Time Highs. Recently, 100 companies realized price marks they have never seen before. 58 of them pay dividends.
All-Time Highs are very good signals showing the strong investor confidence and they are indicating a well-running business as well.
If I look the huge number of stocks at All-Time Highs I can't believe that it is really true. Remember the world economy is still in a recession and growth is weaker than predicted but the financial markets do not care about it. Stocks rally and we are close to All-Time Highs in some of the world's most important indices. The main question for me is: Is this rally sustainable and correct or do you believe that this is a small bubble which becomes bigger and bigger. Let me know and we will discuss it in the comment area.
Below is a small list of the 20 most recommended dividend stocks which realized a new All-Time High within the recent trading days. Two high-yields are part of the results.
Here is the full table with some fundamentals:
Take a closer look at the full table. The average P/E ratio amounts to 21.17 and forward P/E ratio is 16.06. The dividend yield has a value of 1.70 percent. Price to book ratio is 2.98 and price to sales ratio 3.95. The operating margin amounts to 17.98 percent. The average stock has a debt to equity ratio of 0.74.
