3 High-Yielding and Low-Priced Large Cap Dividend Growers Close to New 52-Week Highs

I published recently a small article about Large Cap stocks close to new one-year highs with a single P/E.

The idea behind is that there could be more room for a higher stock price due to the low valuation and the break-out signal. I know that this kind of method is more technical, but it should give you some new ideas from a different perspective of the capital market.

Today I would like to screen my dividend income growth stock database by shares with 10 to 25 years of consecutive dividend growth that are 5 percent or less away from new one-year highs. In addition, the earnings income multiple for the next year should be under 15 and the market capitalization over USD10 billion.

Only 17 stocks fulfilled these criteria of which ten are currently recommended to buy.

Here are the top yielding stocks:
