14 Large Cap Dividend Stocks Close To 52-Week Highs And Which To Consider
Large capitalized dividend stocks near 52-Week Highs originally published at "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". The markets are bullish and stocks move up. It's getting hard to find real bargains or low valuated high-quality dividend stocks. The good thing is that in a bullish market, you can make money with different kind of stocks. Everything goes up and the main reason behind the expansive monetary policy.
Today I like to discover some large caps that are on the jump to reach new 52-Week Highs (up to 10 percent) or to hit All-Time-Highs. Only 14 companies are on the edge to touch new highs. That's a small number compared to the strong market.
I love it when stocks make a home run. It seems that nobody can stop them but take care about the valuation. Some stocks have a P/E over 20! It could be dangerous to buy highly priced assets. Below the results are five with a yield over three percent. Ten have a buy or better recommendation.
