The comparison found two Brazilian firms producing 86.93% to 139.89% price upsides next year.

Oi SA (NYSE:OIBR) a diversified communication services firm in the technology sector with 86.93% showed the lower upside of the two. At the top, Companhia Siderurgica Nacional (NYSE:SID) a steel & iron firm in the basic materials sector forged a 133.89% upside to lead the November global dogs. Seven more global dogs back in the pack showed 5.2% to 32.92% price upsides.

On the downside, one stock exhibited a pending price slump of 11.57% based on 1 yr. analyst mean target pricing. Xueda Education Group (NYSE:XUE) a China based education & training service measured 11.57% to the downside to tempt hungry bears.

The charts above used one year mean target price set by brokerage analysts matched against November 12 closing price to compare ten sector stocks showing the highest upside price potential into 2014 out of 20 selected by yield. The number of analysts providing price estimates was noted after the name for each stock. Three to nine analysts were considered optimal for a valid mean target price estimate.

This report presumed yield (dividend / price) dividend dog methodology applied to any sector and compared that sector side by side with the Dow industrial index leaders. Below, the Arnold global selections for November were disclosed step by step.

Dog Metrics Measured Ten Top Global Stocks

Ten top global dividend stocks that showed the biggest dividend yields November 12 per Yahoo Finance data represented four sectors: technology; financial; services; basic materials. Top dog, Oi SA [Brazil] was best of two technology sector dogs which included Portugal Telecom S.A.. (NYSE:PT) in fourth place. The best of four financial firms, Administradora de Fondos de Pensiones Provida S.A. [Chile] (NYSE:PVD) placed second. The other three financials placed fifth, sixth, and tenth: Alto Palermo S.A. [Argentina] (NASDAQ:APSA); Banco Santander, S.A. [Spain] (NYSE:SAN). The best of two services firms, Xueda Education Group [China] placed third while Fly Leasing Ltd. [Ireland] (NYSE:FLY) was ninth. Two basic materials representatives, Companhia Siderurgica Nacional [Chile] and Ecopetrol SA [Colombia] (NYSE:EC) placed eighth and ninth to complete the top ten global dogs by yield.

Actionable Conclusion (1): Global Dogs Bearish While Dow Dogs Were Bullish

Global dividend payers as of November 12 showed increased dividend from $10k invested as $1k in each of the top ten stocks, while aggregate single share price of those ten plummeted. Dividend rose at a rate of over 4% after October while total single share price dropped early 6% for that period.

For the Dow dogs, meanwhile, projected annual dividend from $10k invested as $1K in each of the top ten Dow dogs dropped over 2%% since October 31, while aggregate single share price jumped up nearly 12%. The Dow dogs overbought condition in which aggregate single share price of the ten exceeded projected annual dividend from $1k invested in each of the ten grew some. The overhang was $125 or 33% in August, and expanded to $161 or 43% for September, shrank down to $111 or 30% for October, and expanded again to $171 or 47'% as of November 11. Most of this bull rally was triggered by Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG) replacing Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) in the top ten Dow dogs this past month.

To quantify the top dog rankings, analyst mean price target estimates provided a "market sentiment" gauge of upside potential and so were added to the simple high yield "dog" metric used to dig out bargains.

Actionable Conclusion (2): Wall Street Wizards Wisdom Wished 21.9% 1 yr. Net Gain from Top 20 MoPay SML Dogs

Top 20 dogs on the Global stock list were graphed below to show relative strengths by dividend and price as of November 12, 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 $20,000 invested as $1k in each of the highest yielding stocks and the aggregate single share prices of those twenty stocks divided by 2 created data points for 2013. Projections based on estimated increases in dividend amounts from $1000 invested in the twenty 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 dividend graphed from the plus row in the chart below exhibiting the over 22% net gain.

Factoring in a 0.36.5% loss from the negative net stock introduced above, a net gain of 21.98% results.

Yahoo projected an over 10% lower dividend from $10K invested in this group while aggregate single share price was projected to increase by nearly 6% in the coming year. The number of analysts contributing to the mean target price estimate for each stock was noted in the next to the last column on the charts. Three to nine analysts was considered optimal for a valid projection estimate. Estimates provided by one analyst were not applied (n/a).

A beta (risk) ranking for each stock was provided in the far right column on the above chart. A beta of 1 meant the stock's price would move with the market. Less than 1 showed lower than market movement. Higher than 1 showed greater than market movement. A negative beta number indicated the degree of a stock price movement opposite of market direction.

Actionable Conclusion (3): Analysts Forecast 2014 Global DiviDogs to Net 8% to 139%

Only four of the ten top dividend yielding utilities dogs were verified as being among the nine gainers for the coming year based on analyst 1 year target prices. So this month the dog strategy for this sector as graded by Wall St. wizards was 44% accurate.
