Despite the crises there are still companies at all-time highs and good dividends. Here is a current sheet of dividend stocks (positive yield) that have marked a new 52-week high within the recent days. Despite the uncertainty at the markets, there are 52 companies at one-year highs and 22 of them pay dividends.
