Many people ask themselves how to make money with stocks and generate a second income that is substantial enough to support them in early retirement. Most investors try to search for a safe investment strategy that works consistently well. Something simple enough to understand and easy to implement.
My strategy is to buy the 10 Dogs of the Dow stocks with the highest dividend yield and lowest price to earnings ratio at the beginning of the year and to hold them for the year. After this period, the investor should sell those stocks that are no longer Dogs of the Dow and buy the new Dogs of the Dow. Below is an updated list of the 10 best Dogs of the Dow. These stocks have the lowest expected price to earnings ratio and highest dividend yield within the Dow Jones Index.
The ten cheapest Dogs of the Dow have an average dividend yield of 21.72 percent as well as a forward P/E ratio of 12.02. The average P/B ratio amounts to 2.37 and P/S ratio is 1.97.
