My 3 Favorites from Higher Capitalized Dividend Stocks Close to New 52-Week Lows

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 best-yielding stocks that are close to their 52-week lows (up to 3 percent). In order to eliminate stocks with higher risk, I screened only companies with a market capitalization over USD2 billion. As a result, 12 stocks are near to their 52-week lows of which six have a yield over three percent and five are recommended to buy.

Here is the table with some fundamentals to compare:
