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".

As noted above, top ten Kiplinger Miscellaneous reliable dividend (MRD) dogs screened 9/18/19 showing the highest dividend yields represented six of eleven in the Morningstar sector scheme.
Actionable Conclusions: Analysts Predicted 5 Lowest-Priced Of The Top Ten Highest-Yield MRD Dogs (32) Delivering 24.62% Vs. (33) 21.34% Net Gains by All Ten Come September/October 2020
$5,000 invested as $1k in each of the five lowest-priced stocks in the top ten Miscellaneous reliable dividend kennel by yield were predicted by analyst 1-year targets to deliver 15.38% more gain than $5,000 invested as $.5k in all ten. The fourth lowest priced, Vermilion Energy Inc., was projected to deliver the best net gain of 45.55%.
The five lowest-priced top-yield Miscellaneous reliable dividend dogs as of September 18 were: Gladstone Capital Corp.; The Chemours Co.; Apple Hospitality REIT Inc.; Vermilion Energy Inc.; Global Net Lease Inc., with prices ranging from $9.59 to $19.64.

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.
