Dogs of the Dow Jones originally published on "long-term-investments.blogspot.com". Today I like to deliver you an update of the price ratios from the current Dogs of the Dow Jones. The two telecom carrier AT&T as well as Verizon are still the top yielding stocks on the list. They are followed by semiconductor company Intel and drug producers Merck and Pfizer. Nothing new compared to the results from last month.
The philosophy behind is to buy ten stocks of the Dow Jones with the highest dividend yield and lowest price to earnings ratio at the beginning of the year and to hold these stocks for a year. After this period, the investor should sell stocks that are no more Dogs of the Dow and buy therefore new Dogs of the Dow. Below is an updated sheet of the ten best Dogs of the Dow. They have the lowest expected price to earnings ratio and highest dividend yield within the Dow Jones index.
Summarized, the 10 cheapest stocks of the Dow Jones have an average dividend yield of 3.50 percent as well as a forward P/E ratio of 12.20. The average P/B ratio amounts to 2.72 and P/S ratio is 2.48.
