My 3 Favorite Dividend Stocks at All-Time-Highs | Stock List

People love to watch stocks that are going up and never stop to run. It makes more fun if you own this stock or you are a part of the company. The feeling is unbelievable. You watch your share price and nearly every day a new high is realized. You also check your accounting balance of your trading account and you see how much your position is worth. That is a really wonderful emotion. I had often had this feeling. What about you? Do have a stock with such a performance that produced a similar feeling?

In my blog I present on a regular basis the stocks at new 52-week highs or even better, stocks at all-time highs. Recently, 21 companies realized price marks they have never seen before. Thirteen of them pay dividends. All-time highs are very good signals showing the strong investor confidence in the stock and indicating a well-running business.
