Dogs of the Dow Dividend Stocks Dogs of the Dow 2017

Pttrx Dividends

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 (ttm) dividend. Or it can be caused by a special, one-time only super dividend.

Fourth Portfolio Review - 'The Accelerated Dividend Portfolio'

Strategy - Over two years ago I started to think about income streams I'll want for retirement and undertook a plan of building a "starter" dividend portfolio in my Fidelity 401(k) account. - Used 30% of my 401(k) balance to build my dividend portfolio with the anticipation of gaining greater knowledge and wisdom ahead of going "all in" down the road. - Attempting to quickly build my portfolio with high-quality, high-yielding dividend companies and then...

A Dividend Portfolio Built From The World's Best Dividend ETFs

Since my first article using the pseudonym ETF Monkey was published on Seeking Alpha on June 3, 2015, my main focus has been to demonstrate that it is possible for almost anyone to harness the power of ETFs to build low-cost, diversified portfolios that allow them to access the power of financial markets without incurring hefty, ongoing fees for financial "advice." At the same time, I have read many great articles both here and on other sites with respect to building great... Read more

2 Blue-Chip Dividend Growth Stocks On Sale

Introduction The stock market continues higher and higher, seemingly unabated. Valuations have become stretched - are there any values still remaining? I contend there are, and I would like to highlight two of them. As individual stock pickers, it is imperative that we select our equities carefully. We must be mindful of the business arena in which the company operates, its business fundamentals and prospects. After deciding that a business is worth investment dollars, it is then... Read more

Verizon: Dividend King

There's a great deal of pessimism surrounding Verizon (NYSE: VZ) and in my view that's a good thing. The only way you can acquire assets that are on sale is when other investors eschew the name for any number of reasons related to competition, lack of growth or a host of other issues. I think Verizon is a well run, shareholder friendly firm that is years if not decades away from redundancy. There might be some bumps along the road, but this valuation and this yield are too much to... Read more

Verizon's Yield Is Creeping Higher

It's no surprise that Verizon (NYSE: VZ) is still willing to acquire Yahoo (NASDAQ: YHOO) (albeit at a $250-$350 million lower price following the relatively recent revelation that Yahoo's data breach was dramatically more widespread than originally announced) because Verizon still needs Yahoo. Specifically, Verizon's dividend payout ratio has continued to climb higher, and without the cash flows that Yahoo will provide, Verizon will likely be forced to sell more assets to maintain...

4 Dividend Growth Stocks Worth Looking At Right Here

Due to timing of contributions this month, my wife and I should have enough fresh capital in our IRAs to make two purchases. Last month, we started new positions in Nike (NYSE: NKE) and Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT). We added Visa (NYSE: V) earlier this month, after it released earnings, to bring this position to a half position. We bought shares at $86.39. I've long wanted to add shares of the world's largest credit card company and didn't mind paying up for a quality name. While... Read more

How Buy & Hold Stacks Up To Active Management In Dividend Growth Investing

According to a new survey released by an outfit called Exodus Travels, Americans get their "second wind" at age 56. That's good news for yours truly, as I just recently turned 56. Sure enough, I've had a pretty good run lately. For example ... The middle-school basketball team I coach just won our second consecutive conference championship. The girls celebrated by unleashing a torrent of Silly String my way. Also... While I wasn't thrilled to see those... Read more

5%+ Dividend Yield Portfolio: Taking Profits As Market Valuations Flash Warnings (Jan 2017 Review)

Review and Outlook It's been a solid start to the year as the S&P 500's return of 1.9% was almost mirrored by my 1.5% return. After the dramatic returns of November and December, it makes sense to me that the markets would take a breather before deciding on the next move. No Trump talk from me this month - not because it isn't relevant, but because: 1) he is already the subject of thousands of mentions on Seeking Alpha, and 2) no one has any idea what is going to happen...

The Most Popular Stocks In Dividend-Focused Mutual Funds

Two Heads are Better Than One! I love finding out which stocks are held in other folks' dividend portfolios! When I first started investing in dividend growth stocks, I analyzed the public portfolios of various Seeking Alpha authors to discover which DGI stocks were held in the most portfolios. I dubbed the results "The Sweet Sixteen," and at the time, I invested in all 16 stocks except Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT). In early 2015, I followed up on my "Sweet... Read more
