The S&P 500 Index and the Dow Jones Industrial Average both closed last week just below fresh highs hit on Thursday, and the Nasdaq finished out the week at a 13-year high, trading above 4,000 for the first time since September 2000. Renewed strength in small caps lends credibility to the bullish moves, with the Russell 2000 outpacing larger stocks and finishing the week at a new high.

Since July 11, 2012, our 230 dividend stock picks and subsequent sell recommendations have produced a total return of 27.1% with a 5.7% average yield at time of purchase. If you had instead bought and sold the SPDR S&P 500 (SPY) at each of the same times, you would have earned 21.3% total return with an average yield of 1.94%.
