Dogs of the Dow

This popular and simple strategy often does well. I do not do this but it has been a long term winner. At 70 years old, it's for investors with a longer investment window.

What makes the Dogs of the Dow strategy so attractive?
Two things stand out about the Dogs of the Dow strategy: it's easy to use, and it has performed well. The way you pick the Dogs is very simple. When the year starts, look at the top 10 yielding dividend stocks in the Dow Jones Industrials. Invest equal amounts of money in all 10 stocks. Then, hold onto those stocks throughout the year. At the end of the year, dividend yields will have changed, and so following the strategy for another year will inevitably require you to sell some of your holdings and buy new ones.

The secret behind the success of the Dogs of the Dow is that it tends to take strong elements from two different investing styles. On one hand, dividends play an obvious role, because the strategy picks only the highest-yielding Dow stocks. At the same time, though, high-yield stocks in the Dow tend to be ones that have lagged in performance in past years, and that adds a value-investing element to the mix. Often, hard-hit stocks bounce back the following year, and that adds upward momentum to the Dogs of the Dow.

Pretty hard to argue with this premise. Just have to really hold your nose when you play some of the names.

I think that Philip Morris (MO) was a Dow component once. Pays 4.01% now. It is like buying the other products and getting the tobacco part free. It just broke multi-year resistance Friday.
