Dogs of the Dow Dividend Stocks Dogs of the Dow Best Dividend Stocks

Health Stocks

Compare the dividend stocks in the Dogs of the Dow index by dividend yield, payout ratio, Price/Earnings, earnings per share (EPS), dividend per share (DPS).

The Dogs of the Dow, also called High Yield 10, is an investment strategy popularized in 1991 by Michael O'Higgins. It proposes that an investor annually selects the 10 Dow Jones Industrial Average stocks whose dividend is the highest fraction of their price.

Beware of stocks with an extremely high dividend yield! This can be caused by a stock price that is extremely low, compared to the trailing twelve months dividend. Or it can be caused by a special, one-time only super dividend.

Retirement Strategy: 5 Dividend Aristocrats To Buy Here

Subscribers to "Resolving Retirement" had an advance look at this material. Self-managing one's retirement is more important than ever in this low-yield world. Avoiding fees is paramount when there is very little safe yield to be found. We think the right solution for most investors is to self-manage their retirement with a CD ladder and a US equity portfolio. We have been recommending a number of retirement investment themes lately, and today, we want to tackle a... Read more

Dividend Growth Portfolio - Happy 8th Birthday

On June 1, 2008, I gave birth to a real-time, real-money dividend growth portfolio. The purpose of having this child was to experiment with and demonstrate dividend growth investing. The idea was and remains that a portfolio managed and tracked in real time is more credible and educational than back-tests. Back-tests inherently suffer from hindsight distortions. I wish that I had given the portfolio a sexier name, but it is simply called Dividend Growth Portfolio (DGP for short). At the end... Read more

30 Cool Dividend Picks During A Hot Market

Introduction In March I wrote my inaugural article detailing the top monthly picks for a DIY DGI portfolio. My strategy revolved around using Motif Investing but it can be accomplished without it. There are many pros of a strategy like this, such as: Dollar cost average into companies that you love and think will do well over the long run Less emphasis on price as each individual company is a small portion of your purchase (If using Motif) Keeps transaction fees low per stock per trade...

Dividend Growth investors don't care about these questions. Should they?

I'm a dividend growth and income investor and I don't care... Read more

These Are The Only Dividend Aristocrats I Would Consider Today

Introduction Generally speaking, the overall stock market is fully valued at best, and in many cases significantly overvalued. Therefore, it is very challenging to find sound and attractive stocks to invest in today. The challenge to find good value today is even more pronounced for the prudent dividend growth investor. Low interest rates and a flight to quality have driven the prices of best-of-breed dividend growth stocks to unprecedented highs. The premier universe of dividend growth... Read more

Free Market Capitalist June Dividend Income

Introduction I have been investing for 13 years now, and it's a major passion of mine. Over the years I have owned many different companies. Most were good investments, and some were not so good investments. I have learned a lot from the bad investments. I've also sold companies at the wrong times when I should have been buying instead. We all live and learn. Twelve years of studying the markets and economy has lead me to put together this portfolio of companies. I hate to use the... Read more

Our Market Beating Portfolio Continues To Provide Increasing Dividend Income

June Portfolio Results With the calendar flipping over to July, 2016 is halfway over (maybe I'm getting older, but time just seems to fly!). I like to examine the investments that make up our retirement accounts at the end of each month to monitor our progress in reaching our retirement goals. We are 20 to 25 years from retirement so I am not extremely concerned how our stock selections do on a short-term basis, but I'm always looking for the opportunity to buy quality stocks at a...

The Dividend Growth 50 Trumps The Market By Nearly 300%

Had you told me on June 30, 2015, that the Dividend Growth 50 would outperform the market over the next 12 months, I might have responded, "I hope so." Had you told me the DG50 would practically quadruple the total return of the S&P 500 Index, I probably would have laughed in your face. I mean, what other silly notion could you have advanced back then? The bombastic reality-show host who had just announced his candidacy for president actually would emerge as the presumptive...
