Best Performing Small Dogs of the Dow Stocks of 2021

Updated Apr 1, 2021
While the concept of 'Dogs of the Dow' which contains 10 stocks has become extremely popular among the investors in recent times, the list has been further refined to include only five stocks to add more spice and aim for better dividend income. The Small Dogs of the Dow Stocks list of five stocks is derived from the larger 'Dogs of the Dow' list of 10 stocks, based on the lowest stock prices. That is, from the 10-stock list, the ones which had the lowest prices at the end of the previous years qualify to be included in the 'Small Dogs of the Dow Stocks.
Investors may prefer this smaller list as these lowest-priced stocks offer higher dividend yields. For instance, a stock that is trading at $10 per share and paying dividend of $1 per share will have a dividend yield of 10 percent, while a stock trading at a price of $5 and paying the same $1 dividend will have a dividend yield of 20 percent. This way, the lower-priced stocks which are known to pay regular dividends may appear more attractive to dividend loving investors.
