With one day to go in the year's first half, Bank of America (BAC) ranks as the Dow's top gainer, +39%. Next is Disney (DIS), +27.5%, then Home Depot (HD), +23%. Worst is Hewlett-Packard (HPQ), -24.8%, then McDonald's (MCD), -12%. Remember the Dogs of the Dow strategy? It gets little love, but DOD has outperformed DIA YTD, Y/Y, and over the last 5 years.
