Five Buys Near 52-Week Highs

RF Chart RF data by YCharts

Regions Financial (RF - Get Report)

Background: Regions Financial has banking-related subsidiaries engaged in mortgage banking, credit life insurance, leasing and securities-brokerage activities with offices in various Southeastern states. Regions trades an average of 16.5 million shares a day and has a market cap of $10 billion.

52-Week High: $7.17

52-Week Low: $2.82

Regions is one of the most liquid stocks traded, with over 16 million shares changing hands a day.

I really like Regions because, based on technical analysis, the stock is trading near a 52-week high with a strong base in price support. More impressive is the 60% climb in price over the last year. The mean analyst price target is $7.46. As with Home Depot, I would prefer a higher price target or a dip in price before entering.

Short interest is very small at about 1.5% and well below my comfort-level threshold. After some losses and even a decline in revenue, Regions is on the right path for a respectable P/E ratio. Regions also beat in the last four out of four quarters.
