These 14 Stocks With Very High Yields (Over 10%) Are Close To 52-Week Highs

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:

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.
