Dogs of the Dow Jones originally published on "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". Today, I like to highlight the current Dogs of the Dow.
The philosophy behind 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. They have the lowest expected price to earnings ratio and highest dividend yield within the Dow Jones Index.
Summarized, the 10 cheapest stocks of the Dow Jones have an average dividend yield of 3.45 percent as well as a forward P/E ratio of 12.31. The average P/B ratio amounts to 2.72 and P/S ratio is 2.49.
