    When we talk about making money with dividend or even value stocks, we all think about safe yields and big profits. Nobody talks about losses but they are also part of a trading business.

    When you read my blog for a longer period, you would get some ideas of stocks you have never heard before. That's right; my database includes all 6,607 stocks and some of them are working in real small niches. Today I like to go back and show you the 10 hottest dogs of the world's most mentioned index, the Dow Jones Index.

    I cover the "Dogs of the Dow" strategy in my blog "long-term-investments.blogspot.com" on a regular basis. The philosophy 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 10 cheapest stocks of the Dow Jones have an average dividend yield of 3.48 percent as well as a forward P/E ratio of 12.40. The average P/B ratio amounts to 2.68 and P/S ratio is 2.18.

    Here is the table with some fundamentals:
