3 Great Dividend Stocks at All-Time Highs

I always look at stocks at new 52-week highs or all-time highs. Those are the most wanted assets on the market.

Companies with a rising stock price show good signs of a healthy business and prospect a rosy future but it’s also dangerous to buy them at high P/E levels.

Think about Tesla or Apple, both hit week-for-week new highs over a long period and made many investors of the early stage investing era very rich but with a forward P/E of 83.87, Tesla is not cheap. You run into risk when you buy the shares at this price. The possibility to see the price you have paid never again is high. Apple however is valuated with a forward P/E of 12.55 and has a proven business model with a strong brand. Apple definitely has a lower risk profile than Tesla.

Recently, 14 companies hit a new all-time high. Five of the stocks pay dividends. You can find them in the attached list of stocks at new all-time highs. One of the biggest companies is the oil and gas drilling and exploration stock, ConocoPhillips.

Here are my favorite stocks:
