52-Week High: $19.74Rubbermaid is once again pressing against the lid of the recently expanded 52-week high. Rubbermaid appears sealed tight with an incredibly high trailing price-to-earnings ratio exceeding 60. Don't let the trailing P/E fool you, though. Sometimes looking at previous financial results is comparable with driving your vehicle using the rearview mirror. Based on analysts' earnings projections, the P/E is receding down to a 10, a premium convincingly within conservative acquisition metrics. Rubbermaid pays a reasonably attractive 2.1% dividend yield based on 40 cents a share per year. The forward payout ratio is less than 30% based on current year estimates. Anything under 50% is considered reasonably safe absent an underlying concern. I like the chart pattern. The chart shows a stock in a bullish pattern and one that is breaking out with durability. After the recent retracement, Rubbermaid's renewed approach of the September highs is typical of a stock that is about to break higher.
