The Dividend Dogs Rule
Stocks earned the "dog" moniker by exhibiting three traits: (1) paying reliable, repeating dividends, (2) their prices fell to where (3) yield (dividend/price) grew higher than their peers. Thus, the highest yielding stocks in any collection became known as "dogs." More precisely, these are, in fact, best called, "underdogs".

Actionable Conclusions: Analysts Predicted 5 Lowest-Priced of the Top Ten Highest-Yield 'WallStar' Basic Materials Stocks (31) Delivering 41.8% Vs. (32) 31.38% By July, 2019
$5000 invested as $1k in each of the five lowest-priced stocks in the top ten dividend 'WallStar' Basic Materials kennel by yield was predicted by analyst 1-year targets to deliver 33.21% more net gain than $5,000 invested as $.5k in each of all ten.

That distinction between the five low-priced dividend stocks and the general field of ten reflected Michael B. O'Higgins' "basic method" for beating the Dow. The scale of projected gains based on analyst targets added a unique element of "market sentiment" gauging upside potential. It provided a here-and-now equivalent of waiting a year to find out what might happen in the market. Caution is advised, since analysts are historically only 20% to 80% accurate on the direction of change and just 0% to 20% accurate on the degree of change.
