5 High-Yielding Companies in a Strong Bull Trend

T Earnings Per Share Growth Chart T Earnings Per Share Growth data by YCharts

AT&T(T - Get Report)

Background: AT&T is a premier communications holding company. Its subsidiaries and affiliates, AT&T operating companies, are the providers of AT&T services in the U.S. and around the world. AT&T trades an average of 20 million shares per day with a market cap of $217.9 billion.

52-Week Range: $27.29 to $38.28

Yield: 4.74%

Overall, I like the stock AT&T even if I don't care for the company much. I don't let my personal opinion impact upon my investing choices unless I believe it demonstrates a companywide problem. The market I live in provides basically one choice for phone service and two for Internet.

As a result of a near-monopoly and low population density, AT&T has enjoyed a "take it or leave it" approach with customer service. It's better than when I was a kid, but not by much.

At least the chart has great customer service written all over it. The moving averages are trending higher, and Ma Bell is in a strong bull trend. In recent days the price has come in a small amount setting up a buying dip. Based on analyst estimates for earnings of $2.40 per share this year, the price-to-earnings ratio is 15.5.

This stock currently has an annualized dividend of $1.76. Over the last five years, the dividend has grown by an average of 5.3% per year.

Short-sellers are next to impossible to find. Short interest is very low; I only include it to demonstrate that smart money is not betting against this company. One percent of the float is short based on the last reported numbers.
