The Dividend Dogs Rule
Stocks earned the "dog" moniker by exhibiting three traits: (1) Paying reliable, repeating dividends, (2) their prices fell to where, and (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".

Analysts Project A 31.83% Advantage For Five Highest-Yield, Lowest-Priced Energy WallStars To October 2019
Ten top Energy WallStars were culled by yield for their monthly update. Yield (dividend/price) results verified by YCharts did the ranking.
As noted above, top ten Energy WallStars selected 10/8/18 showing the highest dividend yields represented three of six industries in their sector.
Actionable Conclusions: Analysts Predicted Five Lowest-Priced Of The Top Ten Highest-Yield Energy Equities (31) Delivering 59.68% Vs. (32) 45.27% Net Gains By All Ten By October 2019
$5,000 invested as $1k in each of the five lowest-priced stocks in the top ten Energy kennel by yield was predicted by analyst one-year targets to deliver 31.83% more net gain than $5,000 invested as $.5k in each of the top ten. The third lowest priced Energy top yield equity, Sanchez Midstream Partners, was projected to deliver the best net gain of 92.42%.
The five lowest-priced top Energy stocks for October 8 were: CSI Compressco LP; American Midstream; Sanchez Midstream Partners LP; NGL Energy Partners; and Martin Midstream Partners, with prices ranging from $5.69 to $11.91.
Five higher-priced Energy stocks for October 8 were: Green Plains Partners LP; Summit Midstream Partners; USA Compression Partners LP; CVR Refining LP; and Buckeye Partners (BPL), whose prices ranged from $14.65 to $36.24.
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.
