    Many people ask themselves how to make money with stocks and generate a second income that is high enough to retiree a few years earlier in order to enjoy the lifetime a bit more. Most investors try to search a safe investment strategy that works really well. A Strategy, simple enough to understand and easy to implement. Some investment strategies fail, others work well but every tactic is not forever. It comes the time when the market forces change.

    One strategy I cover in my blog on a regular basis is the Dogs of the Dow Jones philosophy. The strategy is to buy 10 stocks of the Dow Jones with the highest dividend yield and lowest price to earnings ratio at the beginning of the year and to hold these stocks for a year. After this period, the investor should sell stocks that are no more Dogs of the Dow and buy therefore new Dogs of the Dow. Below is an updated sheet of the 10 best Dogs of the Dow. Such stocks have the lowest expected price to earnings ratio and highest dividend yield within the Dow Jones Index.

    The ten cheapest stocks of the Dow Jones have an average dividend yield of 21.72 percent as well as a forward P/E ratio of 12.02. The average P/B ratio amounts to 2.37 and P/S ratio is 1.97.

    Here is the table with some fundamentals:
