High Yield Nasdaq

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.

Dividend Growth Investors, Wake Up!

It confounds me that while dividend growth investors are typically small retail investors that could easily buy smaller stocks (which historically outperform), they instead focus on the largest, most well-known and efficiently-priced stocks in the market. It further confounds me that dividend growth investors seem relatively valuation indifferent. Dividends are great as a return of capital and I have warmed up to them relative to share repurchases over the last few years, but they are not... Read more

Dividend Update - August 2016

It's the end of one month and the beginning of another, so it's time for my favorite update: my dividend update. These dividend updates reflect all dividends that I receive through my investing pursuits. I hope they can help inspire you to take control of your own finances and invest to build a passive income stream. What you use that stream for is up to you, whether it's to fund early retirement, just provide some FI/FU money, or even to provide for an annual vacation. The key is... Read more

My 4% Dividend Yield Portfolio: Looking Forward To Add Digital Realty Trust

The employment report that was published last Friday was very aligned with the Fed's expectations. While the Fed's executives expected to see a job creation number that is above 100,000, the August indicator came in at 151,000. That means that the jobs indicator fits nicely with the Fed's expected trend, and therefore, there is a good chance that we would see an interest rate hike of 0.25 pts as early as mid-September. My personal perspective, which I expressed here in SA... Read more

Free Market Capitalist August Dividend Income

I have been investing for 13 years now. Investing is 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. Thirteen years of studying the markets and economy has lead me to put together this portfolio of companies. I hate to use the word... Read more

5%+ Dividend Yield Portfolio: Outperformance Continues (Aug 2016 Review)

Review and Outlook August was a nothing sandwich for the markets with articles about the month appearing with titles like Eerily quiet: 38 days of near-silence for stocks Just how quiet is it? Well one particularly interesting graph shows that this is the lowest volatility reading in the last 2 years. Personally, I just don't think that the uninterrupted good times will last forever. However, I think the fundamentals of the economy are still strong, so I am not looking for... Read more

Bert's August Dividend Income Summary

We've closed the chapter on yet another month of 2016. Time moves so fast, it is unreal. It seems like just yesterday I was typing up my July dividend income summary and feeling excited for what was in store for me in August (probably because we went on our honeymoon!). I received my last dividend of the month a few days ago, so it is finally time to once again share my results and track my progress as I race towards completing my 2016 goals. With that being said, here it is, my August... Read more

85-Stock Portfolio Review By Dividend Payment Month Groups, CCC Status, Moats And New Purchases

Dividend income generated by my portfolio continues to grow along with its value. Dividend yield was 4.04% last year, but with the portfolio value up this year by 16.9% in the first 6 months and holding pretty steady the dividend yield is now only 3.88%. The Q1 to Q2 increase in dividends was 6.3%. I am projecting another 10% increase in dividends from there to the end of this year. For me it's mostly all about dividends and reliable increasing income. Capital gain is also nice but... Read more

Come find out in my August... Read more
