Stocks with Very High Yields Close to One-Year Highs Researched by long-term-investments.blogspot.com

I love stocks with very high yields, yields of more than 10 percent yearly and 2.5 percent quarter dividend but I also hate stocks with a bad stock performance.

I made a screen of stocks with very high yields as well as a stock price close to 52-Week Highs (up to five percent below high). Fourteen companies fulfilled the screening criteria. From the results are 10 stocks with a current buy or better recommendation.

Here are my favorite stocks:

Invesco Mortgage Capital (IVR) has a market capitalization of $2.41 billion. The company generates revenue of $453.35 million and has a net income of $286.8 million. The firm's earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounts to $272.54 million. The EBITDA margin is 60.12 percent (the operating margin is 63.26 percent and the net profit margin is 63.26 percent).

Financial Analysis: The total debt represents zero percent of the company's assets and the total debt in relation to the equity amounts to zero percent. Due to the financial situation, a return on equity of 19.37 percent was realized. Twelve trailing months earnings per share reached a value of $2.83. Last fiscal year, the company paid $3.42 in the form of dividends to shareholders. The stock is 1.97 percent below its 52-Week High.

Market Valuation: Here are the price ratios of the company: The P/E ratio is 7.38, the P/S ratio is 5.38 and the P/B ratio is 1.29. The dividend yield is 12.31 percent. The beta ratio is 0.79.
