    The Pedigrees are back on track, but the Dogs are hurting:

    (Note that the table has been modified. It now includes a column to give the current yield of share price only, in addition to the column that gives the total yield counting both share price and dividends.)

    The Pedigrees all continue to perform steadily, with Texas Instruments (TXN) closing in on KLA-Tecor (KLAC), which is leading the pack this week. Once hot Seagate Technology (STX) has cooled its heels a little bit.

    For the Dogs, Pitney Bowes (PBI) continues its winning ways, followed by R.R. Donnelley & Sons (RRD). The rest of the Dogs are following quite a way back, while Cliffs Natural Resources (CLF) and CenturyLink (CTL) are falling way behind. Expectations of a significant recovery in the iron-ore market seem to have fizzled for Cliffs, while CenturyLink is bucking the upwards trend set by other telecom companies like AT&T (T), Verizon (VZ), and fellow-dog Windstream (WIN).

    Disclosure: I am long PFE.
