Aapl Stock Split 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.

My K.I.S.S. Dividend Growth Portfolio: 1st Quarter 2019 Update

Another good quarter for the stock market. Up over 14% over the past 3 months. And as would be expected during an up market, my dividend growth portfolio trailed the over-all return of the S&P. However, it still performed well, especially in terms of dividends produced and dividend growth. But I will go into the details of my returns and my dividends later. First, I’ll present my portfolio update and my transactions. If you wish to review my previous quarterly updates, you can find them... Read more

10 High-Quality Dividend Growth Stocks Trading Well Below Fair Value

I'm rebooting my series of DivGro Pulse articles to focus on high-quality dividend growth stocks trading at extreme yield levels. When such stocks are trading at historically high yields, they are undervalued and worth considering as potential buys. Conversely, when these stocks are trading at historically low yields, they are overvalued and candidates for potential sells. Last year I wrote an article about Yield Channel Charts, a tool for dividend growth investors to assess market... Read more

High Quality High-Yield Dividend Growth Stocks

In the past two years, I have written two articles on high-quality dividend growth [DG] stocks (2018, 2019). The interest in this subject has been stunning. The two articles rank #1 and #2 on my most-read articles ever on Seeking Alpha, going back more than 10 years. There were a lot of low-yield stocks in those articles. Commenter UncleMilton asked whether it would be possible to rank the quality of 3%-6% yielding stocks. I thought that was an interesting suggestion. However, there are... Read more

My Dividend Growth Portfolio: Q1 2019 Summary

Introduction It's time to summarize another quarter. The last quarter was one of the best quarters in the past decades. The S&P 500 is up by over 13% and the gains were very consistent with low volatility. My portfolio returns were similar to the broader over the first quarter, and I did it with a lower beta. While it's not my ultimate benchmark, I still compare my performance to the S&P 500 as it shows an alternative way of investing. My main goal is to achieve a growing stream... Read more

2 Cheap Stocks With High Shareholder Yields

Stock buybacks have become popular in the past two decades, but historically tend to happen the most at cyclical tops when stocks are expensive: Chart Source: Yardeni Research Despite a lot of controversy recently, there's nothing wrong in principle with stock buybacks, especially when boards of cheap stocks are the ones doing the buybacks.

What Are The Highest Quality Dividend Growth Stocks?

About a year ago, I was surprised when I published an article on high-quality dividend growth stocks, and it went on to receive the most page views of anything I have ever published on Seeking Alpha. This is a new version of that article. Many dividend growth investors try to stick to really high-quality stocks. They prize quality as much as yield, dividend growth rate, and valuation when they are selecting stocks. There are nearly infinite ways to define quality, of course, but... Read more
