Dogs of the Dow Dividend Stocks Dogs of the Dow 2019

Down Jones Tops

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.

It is not unusual to see discussions pop up in article comments about whether Dividend Growth Investing (DGI) is something that a growth investor can easily and cleanly switch to in time for retirement. The discussions are often spirited with many that are absolutely convinced that there really no path for a growth investor to change midstream to dividend growth.

Nicholas Ward's Dividend Growth Portfolio: 2018 Review

Man oh man, itís crazy to think about boiling down a yearís worth of portfolio management into a single article like this (especially, after a year like 2018).

These recap articles are always difficult because Iím never quite sure where to start. But, for the sake of entertainment, Iím going to give it my best shot! 2018 was a pretty interesting year for me. It began with a... Read more

One area of life I have learned to be patient is anything regarding finances. I've learned that basically everything can wait... Read more

Dividend Growth 50: More In Year 4, With Income Up 10% - Part 2

As if it wasn't enough that the Dividend Growth 50 beat the market in total return in 2018, our real-money portfolio also had its best year ever on the income-growing front. How does a 9.87% raise sound? Pretty darn good, if you ask me - and rounding it up to 10% sounds even better! Not even the horrific performance of General Electric (GE) - which continued to bring bad things to life by announcing a 92% dividend cut as a follow-up to last year's 50% decrease - could keep the...
