Actionable Conclusions (1-10): Brokers Calculated 40.71% To 77.11% Net Gains For Ten 10%+ Yield Stocks By September 1, 2020
Three of ten top 10%+Yield Dogs were among the top ten gainers for the coming year (based on analyst 1-year targets). Thus, this forecast for 10%+ Yields, as graded by Wall St. Brokers, was 30% accurate.
Projections based on dividends from $1000 invested in the highest-yielding stocks and aggregate one-year analyst median target prices of those stocks, as reported by YCharts, created the 2020 data points. Note: one-year target prices from single analysts were not applied (n/a). Ten probable profit-generating trades to September 1, 2020, were:
Oasis Midstream Partners (OMP) was projected to net $771.05 based on a median target price estimate from eight analysts, plus dividends, less broker fees. A Beta number was not available for OMP.

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."

Analysts Forecast A 10.04% Disadvantage For 5 Highest Yield, Lowest Priced 10%+ Yield Top Dogs To September 2020
Ten top 10%+ Yield Dogs were culled by yield for this September update. Yield (dividend/price) results from YCharts, verified by YahooFinance, did the ranking.
As noted above, top ten 10%+Yield Top Dogs selected 8/28/19 showing the highest dividend yields represented six of eleven sectors in the Morningstar scheme.
Actionable Conclusions: Analysts Estimated 5 Lowest-Priced Top Ten Highest-Yield 10%+ Top Dogs (32) Delivering 23.65% Vs. (33) 26.28% Net Gains From All Ten By August 28, 2020
$5000 invested as $1k in each of the five lowest-priced stocks in the top ten 10%+ Yield Top Dogs collection was predicted by analyst 1-year targets to deliver 10.04% less net gain than $5,000 invested as $.5k in all ten. The seventh lowest priced 10%+ top yield WallStar, CONSOL Coal Resources LP, was projected by analysts to deliver the best net gain of 45.21%.
The five lowest-priced top 10%+ Yield stocks as of August 28 were: Eregli Demir Ve Celik Fabrikalari TAS; Tele2 AB; Cia de Transmissao de Energia Eletrica Paulista; BP Prudhoe Bay Royalty Trust; Cia de Transmissao de Energia Eletrica Paulista, with prices ranging from $6.71 to $9.05.

The distinction between five low-priced dividend dogs 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.
The net gain/loss estimates above did not factor in any foreign or domestic tax problems resulting from distributions. Consult your tax advisor regarding the source and consequences of "dividends" from any investment.
