Dividends4Life: 3 “Dogs of the Dow” Paying Up to 4.3%

3 “Dogs of the Dow” Paying Up to 4.3%

Posted by D4L | Sunday, January 29, 2017 | | 0 comments »

The “Dogs of the Dow” are back. And this year, the biggest dogs are not just generous yielders – they’re cash cows with price upside to boot. Blue chip names are rarely cheap, which is why we only want to buy them when their businesses are in the tank. As sales and profits recover (as they almost-always do), we enjoy outsized price gains along with our dividends. Since 2000, the Dogs of the Dow have returned an average of 7.9% as a group. That beats both the 5.8% return of the S&P 500, and even the 6.3% average return of the Dow Jones Industrial Average itself.

Today, I’m going to take a look at the three “doggiest” Dogs: Chevron Corporation (CVX) - Integrated oil major Chevron isn’t quite what most people have in mind when they think about the Dogs of the Dow. Pfizer Inc. (PFE) - Pfizer is no Dividend Aristocrat — in fact, the company halved its payout in 2009 alongside other gasp-worthy cuts. Verizon Communications Inc. (VZ) - Nothing screams safety quite like telecom’s duopoly of AT&T Inc. (T) and Verizon. 2017’s Dogs of the Dow are blue-chip dynamos with bulletproof balance sheets and substantial dividends.
