People love it to watch stocks that are going up and never stop to rise. In my blog “long-term-investments.blogspot.com” I present on a regular basis some interesting stocks at new 52-Week Highs or even better, stocks at All-Time Highs. Recently, 100 companies realized price marks they have never seen before. 58 of them pay dividends.

All-Time Highs are very good signals showing the strong investor confidence and they are indicating a well-running business as well.

If I look the huge number of stocks at All-Time Highs I can’t believe that it is really true. Remember the world economy is still in a recession and growth is weaker than predicted but the financial markets do not care about it. Stocks rally and we are close to All-Time Highs in some of the world’s most important indices. The main question for me is: Is this rally sustainable and correct or do you believe that this is a small bubble which becomes bigger and bigger. Let me know and we will discuss it in the comment area.

Below is a small list of the 20 most recommended dividend stocks which realized a new All-Time High within the recent trading days. Two high-yields are part of the results.
