13 Cheap Large Cap Dividend Stocks at New 52-Week Highs

Companies with a well-running businesses and brightening perspectives normally have a strong demand and their share price tends to one-year highs. As of today, the central banks are flooding the markets with cheap money and many stocks have shown a wonderful performance over the recent months due to the capital injections.

I screened the stock market by large capitalized stocks with a yield over three percent that are still buy-able in terms of price-to-earnings (P/E ratio below 20). Finally, the stock should have crossed new highs. Thirteen companies remained of which eight are recommended to buy.

Here are my favorite stocks:

1. Lockheed Martin (LMT)
has a market capitalization of $29.49 billion. The company employs 123,000 people, generates revenues of $46,499.00 million and has a net income of $2,667.00 million. The firm’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounts to $4,903.00 million. Because of these figures, the EBITDA margin is 10.54 percent (operating margin 8.56 percent and the net profit margin finally 5.74 percent).
