4 Dividend Stocks at All-Time-Highs with Low P/Es and Double-Digit Earnings Growth

A rising stock in only a good stock if you are invested. The markets are really bullish after Fed chairman Bernanke has flooded the market with cheap money over recent years. As a result, the many stock markets all over the world hit all-time highs. But not all stocks are winners.

I’ve screened the market by large capitalized stocks at all-time highs. Seventy-six companies have reached this goal and 54 of them pay good dividends. It looks like stocks at new highs are also highly priced. That’s not true. Thirty of the top results still have a forward P/E below 15.
