What is a dividend dog?

The "dog" moniker is earned in three steps: (1) any stock paying a reliable, repeating dividend (2) whose price has fallen to a point where it's yield (dividend/price) (3) has grown higher than it's peers (by industry, sector, index or portfolio). Thus, the highest yielding stocks in any collection become known as "dogs."
