The table below lists the ten highest dividend yield Dow stocks as of Monday’s (09/17/2019) close. These ten dividend stocks would be the current Dogs of the Dow, when an investor started investing in these high dividend-paying stocks. For your convenience, the table also identifies the “small dogs”, which are the five stocks (out of these ten highest dividend yielders) that have the lowest stock price.
For the ten Dogs, August 2019 has been a mixed month as well. Only four Dogs of the Dow showed a positive performance in August. Overall the YTD price performance is only +9.13% and +12.13% as the total return. So the Dogs of the Dow are still underperforming the Dow Jones.
