Six Bullish Stocks That Pay High Dividends

PFE Payout Ratio TTM Chart PFE Payout Ratio TTM data by YCharts

Pfizer Inc. (PFE)

52 Week Range: $17.05 to $24.49

Yield: 3.67%

Investors are receiving 88 cents in dividends. Reviewing the last three years of dividends, the average yearly dividend declared was 77 cents. Over the last few years, Pfizer has raised its dividend about once a year.

With estimated earnings of $2.20 per share this year, the payout ratio is small enough to expect dividend increases to continue for the foreseeable future.

All the key moving averages are in a bullish uptrend. I focus on the 60-, 90-, and 200-day moving averages and they are all trending from the bottom left to the upper right of the chart.

Short sellers are next to impossible to find. Short interest is so low I only include it to demonstrate the smart money is not betting against this company. 0.8% of the float is short, based on the last reported numbers.

Background: Pfizer is a research-based, global pharmaceutical company that discovers and develops innovative, value-added products that improve the quality of life of people around the world and helps them enjoy longer, healthier and more productive lives. Pfizer was founded in 1849 and trades a recent average of 22.9 million shares per day with a marketcap of $177.8 billion.

I use,,, Tradestation, and Reuters for my data. PE is generally adjusted based on an average number of shares and for operational earnings. No chart was provided for VZ, as various data sources were not in sync.

At the time of publication, the author held no positions in any of the stocks mentioned, although positions may change at any time.
