  • "The Dow® [adds a stock] if the company has an excellent reputation, demonstrates sustained growth, and is of interest to a large number of investors. Sector representation is also a consideration."
  • Thirty-one Dow stocks represent nine of eleven sectors. Dow tracks utilities as a separate index and omits real estate. Broker top-ten target-estimated net-gains ranged 14.16%-28.38% topped by BA 12/29/21.
  • Highest-yield 10 are the lead-Dogs of the Dow. January's YCharts-toppers are: INTC, KO, MMM, AMGN, MRK, WBA, CVX, VZ, DOW, and IBM averaging a 3.88% yield.
  • Dow Industrial Index top-ten firms by broker target-price upside, CAT, JPM, DOW, VZ, HON, AXP, GS, WMT, MRK, and V, averaged 16.42% upsides.
  • Analyst one-year targets showed ten highest-yield Dow stocks producing 5.16% LESS gain from $5K invested in the lowest-priced five than from the same investment in all ten. Higher-priced ("bigger" Dow dogs) took the lead by half a length based on broker-augured gains coming into January.

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has requested AT&T (NYSE:T) and Verizon Communications (NYSE:VZ) to delay a 5G wireless service scheduled to start this week.

"Failure to reach a solution by January 5 will force the U.S. aviation sector to take steps to protect the safety of the traveling public, particularly during periods of low visibility or inclement weather," Buttigieg wrote in the letter. "These steps will result in widespread and unacceptable disruption as airplanes divert to other cities or flights are canceled, causing ripple effects throughout the U.S. air transportation system."
I'm very concerned about VZ. Looking at all the ads on media VZ has a lot of competition. ATT is not going to give up market share easily. Spectrum is coming on strong. Tmobile is also coming on strong.
