Beating the Dow 5

|Includes: HD, MRK, PFE, T, Verizon Communications (VZ)
The second variation puts Michael O'Higgins in his book "Beating the Dow“, and called it Beating the Dow 5 (BTD5). Let‘s begin the same as in the first variation: make a list of 10 the best div/yields. Only now, select 5 cheapest shares. Michael O’Higgins said that BTD5 method is more effective than 10 GP method, and the risk remains, in principle, the same.
In our case, we have another one portfolio (The portfolio #2 created in September 29, 2009.):
  1. Pfizer Inc. – PFE
  2. The Home Depot, Inc. – HD
  3. AT&T Inc. - T
  4. Verizon Communications Inc.- VZ
  5. Merck & Co., Inc. – MRK
Performance since the beginning of the portfolio:
Beating the Dow 5– 10.23%;
Dow Jones – 7.42%;
S&P500 – 5.41%.
