I'm buying the dip in Disney.
Just bought both VZ and DOW this week. Can’t beat the 5% yielding dividend on both. Also added to my MO and BMY positions. Moved a lot of my growth stocks that had big gains to cash the past month and prepared my portfolio for the volatility that has already made its way back.

Is there a chart for performance of the 10 dogs, for historic performance?

In Canada we have the Beat The TSX Portfolio.

We have greater moats/oligopolies and I'd guess a better and more consistent market beat.

Massive beat from 1990 tracking.

@Dale Roberts Indeed and Our Big Banks just raised big dividends - Max
