Dogs of the Dow Stocks Performance of 2019

Updated Apr 18, 2019
Want to gain tax-free dividend income as well as chance of getting increase in stock price? Look no further than the 'Dogs of the Dow' principle to make smart investments. The new-age investment concept that is making waves since the end of 2018 is called the 'Dogs of the Dow' investment strategy. Owing to the fact that the strategy managed to beat the Dow Jones index convincingly, it has gained generated enough interest in the investors' community and is being followed by the masses. Here's how it works:
The popular Dow Jones index is constituted by 30 top stocks from a variety of industrial sectors. Being blue-chips stocks with top market value, these 30 companies are regular dividend payers. Additionally, they also maintain a certain dollar-value of dividends with a robust and regular payment frequency. The 'Dogs of the Dow' investment strategy attempts to bank upon the previous year's dividend payment record of these companies and attempts to build a portfolio for the next year assuming that they will not only maintain the dividend payment record but if things go well they will also offer better returns in terms of increase in stock prices over the investment period. Michael B. O'Higgins is credited with making the theory popular in 1991. Out of the 30 Dow Jones stock, pick top 10 stocks which have paid the maximum dividend amount when compared to their stock price. This 10-stock portfolio will offer the chance of earning handsome dividends, which in many countries is considered tax-free income, and also the possibility of increase in stock price.
