Dogs of the Dow Dividend Stocks Dogs of the Dow 2018

World Dividends 2017

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.

With this article I will be covering 10 additional dividend growth research candidates in addition to the initial 10 that I presented in part 1 found here. Furthermore, I wanted to be clear that these are not necessarily my favorite, nor what I consider the best dividend growth stocks out there. Instead, I believe these 50 research candidates currently... Read more

Jane's March Dividend Income Tracker - Retirement Accounts

Investment Thesis March marks the first month that I have tracked Jane's dividend income from her Traditional and Roth IRAs. Unlike the taxable account, we did not start making significant changes to Jane's retirement accounts until after the first of the year. Because of this, there are a number of stocks in Jane's retirement accounts that have yet to pay a dividend but this trend will quickly change as more of Jane's stock purchases become seasoned. I've decided to... Read more

My Dividend Growth Portfolio - Q1 2018 Summary

Introduction It's time to summarize a volatile quarter. This quarter came after a wonderful year. The first month was a direct continuation of the Q4 2017, while the other two months were very volatile. In the past quarter, my portfolio's total return was -5.67% after fees and taxes. This was a tough quarter, and my total return was lower than the S&P 500's. I don't measure my portfolio's performance by its total return, yet it is still a good benchmark. My main goal...

All-Out Trade War Looms - These Dividend Stocks Remain A Hedge

Signature Chaotic Style Visited Upon The Markets Source Well, if you thought we were out of the clear because the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DIA) rose 241 points on Thursday, you stand to be corrected. The Larry Kudlow rally could only take us so far. Kudlow, the president's new economic advisor tried to calm the markets by informing us that the threat of $50 billion in tariffs on China was just that, a threat. It was only a negotiation tactic meant to bring the Chinese to... Read more

Upcoming Dividends: 35 Companies, 12 Increases, 6 Double-Digit Increases

Introduction The information presented below was created based on combining the "U.S. Dividend Champion" spreadsheet compiled by David Fish hosted here with upcoming dividend information from the NASDAQ. This meshes metrics about companies with dividend growth history with upcoming dividend payments (and whether those payments are increasing). These lists highlight the companies with a minimum 5-year dividend growth history. There are companies that for various reasons do not... Read more

My Dividend Growth Portfolio - 42 Holdings, 2 Buys

My activity took a step back during March. The broader market has started to finally see some decent volatility though I don't pay too much attention on a day-to-day basis. With some of the erratic behavior we are starting to see, the only thing I can actually count on are the steady dividends that I am earning. Always keep in mind the current multiple of any particular stock is out of your control. Be sure you are comfortable with your holdings. I still have a few I need to re-evaluate my... Read more

Dividend Growth Trap - Only Invest In What You Currently Know

Draw a circle around the businesses you understand… – Warren Buffett (Forbes, 1974) This is good advice. Invest in what you know. Never invest in a business you cannot understand. You may miss out on a few opportunities, but you will also miss out on the inexplicable crashes. This is one of the reasons why I don’t invest in certain digital assets. But there is a mile of difference between what we currently don’t understand and what we are unwilling to learn... Read more

John And Jane - March Dividend Income Tracker - Taxable Account

Investment Thesis March marks the fifth month that John and Jane have had a well-established concentration of stocks in their taxable portfolio. A total of two stocks in the taxable portfolio delivered increased dividend payments during the month of March. As I continue to document John and Jane success my long-term goal is to create a database that allows for year-over-year (YoY) comparisons that demonstrate the power and simplicity of dividend investing. In addition to documenting the... Read more

This Dividend Stock Gave Up Just 30% Of The S&P 500's Value Collapse

Here we go again. The Dow Jones Industrials (DIA), midday Monday, was down over 720 points, and the broader S&P 500 index (NYSEARCA: SPY) was down more, falling 3.16%. Tech stocks traded down hard again Monday, following last weeks' debacle in that space. Facebook (FB) was down a further 3.3% putting it solidly in bear market territory as market participants believe the company has not done enough to assure users that their identities and data will be secured to give users the...

Dividend Growth 50: Not Perfect, But Yet Another 8% Raise

If there is one absolute truth in investing, it has to be this: Not Warren Buffett, not Peter Lynch, not Carl Icahn, not Jim Cramer, not the self-proclaimed gurus who say they predicted the Great Recession, not your financial advisor, not the loudmouth at the club, none of them. I am reminded of my own investing imperfections every time I take an in-depth look at my portfolio. And my periodic reviews of the Dividend Growth 50 reinforce the notion that even a carefully selected group... Read more
