Actionable Conclusion 2: Wall Street Wizard Wisdom Weighed to Wrest Over 14% Net Gain from Top 20 NYSE International 100 Dogs In 2014

Top 20 dogs from the NYSE International 100 index were graphed below to show relative strengths by dividend and price as of July 29, 2013, and those projected by analyst mean price target estimates to the same date in 2014.

A hypothetical $1000 investment in each equity was divided by the current share price to find the number of shares purchased. The shares number was then multiplied by projected annual per share dividend amounts to find the dividend return. Thereafter the analyst mean target price was used to gauge the stock price upsides and net gains including dividends less broker fees as of 2014.

Historic prices and actual dividends paid from $1000 invested in the 10 highest-yielding stocks and the aggregate single share prices of those 20 stocks divided by 2 created data points for 2013. Projections based on estimated increases in dividend amounts from $1000 invested in the 20 highest-yielding stocks and aggregate one-year analyst target share prices from Yahoo Finance divided by 2 created the 2014 data points green for price and blue for dividends.
