Five Buys Near 52-Week Highs

Here are buys trading near their 52-week highs, but don't chase any of them. Chasing is for stop losses only. ORI Chart ORI data by YCharts

Old Republic International (ORI - Get Report)

Background: Old Republic International engages in underwriting insurance products in the U.S. and Canada. Old Republic trades an average of 1.2 million shares per day with a market cap of $2.9 billion.

52-Week High: $11.35

Beta: 0.71

Price to Book: 0.77

BookValue: 14.40

Old Republic has made a new 52-week high in four of the last five trading sessions. Investors receive 71 cents annually in dividends for a yield of 6.3%. The dividend is at risk based on estimated earnings, but insiders are buying none the less.

If a dividend cut was a serious concern, I would expect to see greater short interest. A highly followed stock like Old Republic is not about to be missed by the shorts. The short interest is minor and only 2.9%.

Look for an entry price just under $11 to lower your risk profile.
