Aristocrats Furthest Below 52-Week High

A number of S&P's Dividend Aristocrats are trading at a wide discount from their 52-week high as noted in the table below. A large percentage of these firms are trading at these lower levels due to the impact surrounding the subprime mortgage market. Although a number of these companies fall into the financial sector, many have seen share prices increase over the past four weeks. Financial related firms have been some of the better performing stocks during this four week period.
