Dogs of the Dow Dividend Stocks Dogs of the Dow 2018

Stock Buy 2017 Dow 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.

My Dividend Growth Portfolio - Q3 2018 Summary

Introduction It's time to summarize another quarter. This quarter was another mediocre quarter for me. I have been lagging the S&P 500 this entire year, and this quarter was no different.

My main goal is to achieve a growing stream of dividends, which will give me some more financial... Read more

Nicholas Ward's Dividend Growth Portfolio: Third Quarter Update

The most common messages that I get here at Seeking Alpha are those asking about my holdings. I’ve come to learn that readers, new and old, like to know what makes up contributors' portfolios.
