'Safe' Dividend Dogs Of The Dow For Winter Relief

The "Safe" Winter Dow Dogs
Yield (dividend / price) results from here verified by Yahoo Finance for ten stocks from eight of eleven Morningstar sectors as of market closing prices February 15 revealed the actionable conclusions discussed below.
McGraw Hill Financial, publisher of this index, states: "The Dow is a price-weighted measure of 30 U.S. blue-chip companies. The Dow covers all industries with the exception of transportation and utilities, which are covered by the Dow Jones Transportation Average and Dow Jones Utility Average.
While stock selection is not governed by quantitative rules, a stock typically is added to The Dow® only if the company has an excellent reputation, demonstrates sustained growth and is of interest to a large number of investors. Maintaining adequate sector representation within the indices is also a consideration in the selection process."
The Dividend Dogs Rule
The "dog" moniker was earned by stocks exhibiting three traits: (1) paying reliable, repeating dividends, (2) their prices fell to where (3) yield (dividend/price) grew higher than their peers. Thus, the highest yielding stocks in any collection became known as "dogs." More specifically, these are, in fact, best named, "underdogs". In other words, the higher the yield, the lower the dog.
