5 'Dogs Of The Dow' To Buy In 2014

Posted by D4L | Monday, January 13, 2014 | | 0 comments »

The Dow Jones Industrial Average has been getting the short end of the stick in 2013. With the blue chip stock index trailing the S&P 500 350 basis points, it's the less exciting of the big indexes, despite the stuffy old Dow being up 25.7% since the first session of the year. But even though the Dow is trailing, it's still been posting some impressive numbers: More than half of the 30 stocks that make up the Dow are up more than 30% in 2013. So much for boring blue chips. Better yet, the Dow could hold the keys to even more gains in 2014. All you have to do is look for the "dogs."

In a nutshell, the Dogs of the Dow strategy works exceptionally well in bull markets, and a whole lot less well when the market is showing signs of weakness. But as far as I'm concerned, it's pretty clear that we're in the early stages of a secular bull right now. So today, we'll take a closer look at five Dogs of the Dow stocks: AT&T (T), Intel (INTC), McDonald's (MCD), Chevron (CVX) and Cisco Systems (CSCO).
