Dogs of the Dow Dividend Stocks Dogs of the Dow 2018

Dji Highest Yields

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.

Portfolio Update: Stocks Getting Slammed As Dividends Shine Bright

My investment career is still very short (roughly 2.5 years) and as such the volatility we are now experiencing daily in the markets is certainly new to me. That said I have been actively watching how the stock markets behaved from 2007 - 2010 and although I am deeply regretting it not to have started investing back then I at least have seen how emotions eventually drive the markets. Right now stocks are trading in a up-and-down range of at least 1% on a daily basis with sharp up and down... Read more

Dividend Cuts: Sometimes, It Is The Right Thing To Do

I recently wrote an article on SeekingAlpha that explained my opinion on why it can be foolish to adamantly refuse to ever sell a stock, and why over-focusing on dividends is to ignore the many other shareholder enriching ways that management can deploy capital. This article was received controversially, to say the least, and has garnered 814 comments to date. Following is a paragraph from that article that will be my focus today: In all my talk about not being afraid to sell, I feel it... Read more

Road To Financial Independence: Growing Dividends, Endless Opportunities But Limited Capital

October was another really intense month as ongoing trade woes, a hawkish interest rate environment and purely black-and-white earnings season mixed a toxic cocktail for most of the stocks. At times with the markets slipping into 10% correction mode the selling into the close was extreme and signaled potentially panic reactions the next day. However, what happened was that mostly every dip was bought on the way down and once markets bottomed out an almost 3% rally followed. (Source: Hedgeye... Read more

General Electric Company: How Safe Is Your Retirement Income From a Dividend Cut?

Lessons From General Electric A few weeks ago, I heard from a friend who had invested in General Electric Company (NYSE: GE). He figured the industrial giant would be a great investment. Unfazed by the company’s distribution cut in November 2017, he bought some shares “for the big yield”—which came out to about five percent at the time. The hefty yield should have tipped him off, but it didn’t. What happened next underscores a lesson I repeat... Read more

Dividend Income Update October 2018

It's dividend income update time. One of my favorite times of the month, as I get to review my previous month of passive income received from my dividend income portfolios. After going through a roller coaster of a month, it seems that November is shaping up to be more of the same. Increased volatility marked by sizable run-ups followed by large declines. It appears that watching your portfolio on a day-to-day basis is a bit pointless if you are a long-term dividend growth investor. Of... Read more

Dividend Update - October 2018

Another month in the books and we are inching closer to the end of the year. I recently just broke last year's dividend record at the end of Q3. Since then, it has been a pretty uneventful October for my portfolio. I was able to make one purchase. A few weeks ago I started a position with Bank of Nova Scotia (NYSE: BNS). The position is still relatively small, but the 19 shares I bought will generate another $49.97 to my yearly dividend income or $12.49 per quarter. BNS pays out in the... Read more
