Dogs of the Dow Performance

In the mid to late 90s I remember seeing an investment strategy that stood out from the rest. The Dogs of the Dow strategy offered a pretty straightforward and easy-to-understand approach, had a solid historical performance, and seemed to be one that would outperform the market consistently going forward. Isn’t that what all investors want? Doesn’t it sound like the golden nugget that all investors scour online broker forums and financial magazines for? Fast forward to today and investors are still drawn to this strategy for the same reasons I had back then. And, there is already much talk about 2010’s Dogs of the Dow and how it ...
Most episodes feature "The Wørd" of the day, which serves as a theme for a monologue early in the episode, each has a studio guest later in the episode, and each begins with a brief summary of what the episode will contain, followed by an introductory phrase and then by the theme music. This introductory phrase very often inserts the word truth into a common phrase, such as "Apply truth liberally to the inflamed area," and "this is The Colbert Report " follows, though there are exceptions. Due to the writers strike , the show went on hiatus on November 5, 2007. The show returned on January 7, 2008, ...

Dogs Of The Dow – Underperforming Last 15 Years ...
The Dogs of the Dow strategy is a simple stock picking strategy which consists of buying the 10 highest yielding stocks of the Dow Jones every year. Wash, rinse, repeat. It was created largely through data mining  and made popular by a US stockbroker in 1991. The back-tested results looked great – “you can beat the index without thinking!”. Of course, no strategy can consistently beat its benchmark all the time in perpetuity. The market has a funny way of assimilating new information. Very Borg-ish, that “market”.

The Blog of HORAN Capital Advisors: December 2006
As noted below, the article concludes future earnings growth is highest for the firms that have high current payout ratios. The article does offer the caution that an investor needs to determine if a company with a high payout ratio can maintain the dividend at the current high rate. "We investigate whether dividend policy, as observed in the payout ratio of the U.S. equity market portfolio, forecasts future aggregate earnings growth. The historical evidence strongly suggests that expected future earnings growth is fastest when current payout ratios are high and slowest when payout ratios are low.

UITs typically invest in a fixed portfolio of bonds that are held until they mature. This distinguishes them from traditional bond mutual funds, which actively manage their portfolios by buying and ...
