3 Best-Yielding Stocks Which Hit All-Time-Highs Recently

We are still in a bull market and have seen a small correction since May 21. The trend is still intact which could be also checked by the number of stocks at All-Time-Highs. They came back recently to a big number.

Below is a list of the 100 best performing stocks at all-time highs. The biggest players on the list are 3M, Danaher, Precision Castparts or Illinois Tool Works. Half of the results pay dividends and 81 have a current buy or better rating.

It’s good to see how fast some stocks recover, a very healthy sign from the market. But the risk increases with every percentage point. You need to take care about the valuation of the stocks. Only 18 percent of the top 100 companies at all-time highs are valuated with a P/E below 15.
