  • Global Dividend Top 10 Dogs Averaged 8.36% Yields On Oct. 28 [View article]
    Thanks, guys. The MIL error has persisted for some time. Good proof-reading catches. I am revising the tables, checking all the alleged dividends, and will post corrections by Monday.

  • Combo CCC Dividend Dogs Top 10 Average 41% Upside And 51% Gain By October 2016 [View article]
    These maybe one or two or even three reasons for TGP's current price. (1.) unpredictability of the whole shipping industry; (2) specialization in a commodity sinking ever lower in value; (3) low charisma. Just sayin'...

  • Top 10 BDC Dividend Dogs Yield 13.4% To 20.4% As Of October 19 [View article]
    Thanks, Balance sheet guru, for your perspective. You make very good points about BDCs.

    There are many ways to look at any dividend dog. A most obvious way is one I use. I ask, "What is the price and the annual dividend?" A yield percentage results from that inquiry. Ranked high to low those results drive the dog ranking system. No more. No less.

    A follow-up article will discuss this list from the perspective of analyst price expectations.

  • Top 10 BDC Dividend Dogs Yield 13.4% To 20.4% As Of October 19 [View article]
    Thanks Darren, for your observation and explanation. It's no BDC. I'll throw it off this list. However, I think the confusion arises from the final sentence in the following paragraph describing the company.

    Here is how CORR describes itself from a recent quarterly report:

    "CorEnergy Infrastructure Trust, Inc. (NYSE: CORR, CORRPrA), is a real estate investment trust (REIT) that owns essential midstream and downstream energy assets, such as pipelines, storage terminals, and transmission and distribution assets. We seek long-term contracted revenue from operators of our assets, primarily under triple net participating leases."

  • Top 10 Dow Dogs Yield 3.4% To 5.09% As Of October 16 [View article]
    Thanks for asking, FTFirst. The Dow Dogs could reach a balance point (if dividends remain at current dollar levels) when the leading ten Dow dogs share prices drop 24% from their August 21 closing marks, or 30% from where they were July 31.

  • 10 Monthly Paying Dividend Dogs Average An 18.45% Yield October 16 [View article]
    Thanks for your observation, WTJ. I guess I'd summarize your concern, thus: "Beware of a yield only selection strategy employed on a field of bleeders."

  • Top 10 Financial Dogs Yield 16.67% Average Dividend As Of October 15 [View article]
    Thanks for asking your good question, LongRoser:
    The way I see it, many dividend investors are seeking safety more than yield. They've been investing in the Dow Industrials, S&P500 Aristocrats, Dividend Champions and the like. They are paying high prices for historically safe dividends. Here in the bargain basement you get high dividends at low prices with short histories of regular payouts.

  • How To Best Use Fredrik Arnold's Dividend Dog Articles  [View instapost]
    There are no guarantees by Mr. Market. While the dog system mostly works to the positive, results vary greatly by the pack of dogs chosen, and the ability of the individual dogs in the pack to sustain their dividends. The greater the gap between low price and high dividend, the greater the risk. When aggregate dividend from $1k invested in a stock falls lower than the single share price of that stock, you are paying too much for the dividend, so the stock is overpriced.

  • 10 'Follower Favorite' Dividend Dogs Average 17.48% Yield As Of September 30 [View article]
    Yes. The purpose is to find dividend stocks worth buying to make more money and not lose money.

    For example, Comparing the top ten dow dogs to the top ten of any subject index, sector, or collection gives a clear instant picture of the relative volatility and risk as displayed by the gaps between dividend and price.

    Following this series gives readers an edge in the endless search for the perfect dividend equity.

    Aren't you glad you asked?

  • 10 Monthly Dividend SML Dogs Return 44.81% More Gains From 5 Highest Yield, Lowest Priced As Of September 28, 2016 [View article]
    It's an almost small cap dividend stock and has healthy yield without the special dividend. It's a business development company (BDC) with many lines of business for small business customers. Thanks for the heads up, Broadcaster 1, I'll note it for my next BDC dividend dog review.

  • 10 REIT Category Leaders Show 17.44% More Gains From 5 Highest Yield, Lowest Price As Of September 21, 2016 [View article]
    Thanks for sharing our take on the HPT, vvuser!

    I agree that any REIT is preferable to owning the actual properties. The shares are liquid and can be sold at anytime. Try to unload the Waldorf Astoria on a Tuesday afternoon.

  • 50 5-Star Top Dogs Sport Up To 58.2% Upsides And 71.9% Net Gains For 2016 [View article]
    This write up will be followed up in a year. I have past data to process from 2014 for a pending report. Previous back test summary data holds that analysts estimates are 20 to 80 % accurate for the direction of change and 0 to 20% accurate for the amount of change.
