Hot Dow Dividend Stocks To Watch Right Now


It’s not hard to be optimistic about the prospects for the broad-based S&P 500 (SNPINDEX: ^GSPC  ) with the index closing yesterday at a new all-time high. The jobs picture continues to slowly improve and the majority of companies within the S&P 500 have blown past, or at least met, Wall Street’s earnings expectations thus far in the second-quarter. In a shade over four months, the S&P 500 is up 13% for the year.

While not all investors agree that the market will head higher, short-sellers have certainly kept their distance from a select few S&P 500 components. Today, just as we did last month, I intend to look at the five least short-sold S&P 500 components and decide whether or not current shareholders have any reason to worry.
