80 S&P 500 high dividend yield index dogs showed top-ten March net gains ranging 38.29%-68.63% topped by Valero 3/4/20. HP, F, NWL, COTY, XOM, WMB, CCL, OXY, SLB, and VLO averaged 49.18% broker-projected net gains.

S&P 500 ten top high yield index firms by March broker target-price upsides, XOM, WRK, WMB, UNM, CCL, GM, OXY, PSX, SLB, and VLO, averaged 47.65%.
$5k invested in the lowest-priced five March high-yield S&P 500 index dividend dogs showed 3.04% more net gain than from $5k invested. Little, low cost dividend dogs came back to rule this pack for March.

The index is designed to measure the performance of 80 high yield companies within the S&P 500 and is equally weighted to best represent the performance of this group, regardless of constituent size." - us.spindices.com
