18 Top Dividend Stocks Near One-Year Lows

New Breakout Stocks By Dividend Yield – Stock, Capital, Investment. Sometimes it makes sense to observe stocks with an ongoing sell-off. The background is to find stocks with a possible turnaround story and to bet on a strong bull race. Oversold stocks are often traded at new lows but they could recover in a fast way. If the company pays stable dividends, it should increase the expected total return for an investor. However, here is a current screen of high-yield stocks that are close to their 52-week lows (up to 5 percent). In order to eliminate stocks with higher risk, I screened only companies with a market capitalization over USD2 billion. As a result, 18 higher capitalized stocks are near to their 52-week lows of which three have a double-digit dividend yield and six are recommended to buy.
