10 Top Dividend Champs At 52-Week Lows

I personally look at stocks that are not popular on the market. Those are companies with decreasing stock prices which does not mean that they have a bad running business. Sometimes, there is something wrong with the sentiment or the technicals, only a market issue.

Bottom fishing can sometimes be a big mistake for novice investors. In the past I found it easy to convince myself that buying a stock at the 52 week low is not a risky proposition because of that stock's low price relative to past earnings, dividend yield, or some other metric of value.

But in reality, buying a down trending stock is always risky, as you are betting against the market itself which does not mean that it is bad. Swimming or acting against the storm or crowd could be profitable.

Today, I like to show you those stocks from the Dividend Champions list that is trading around its one year lows. It's only informational but there are also some good names on it. Which do you like?
