The Dogs of the Dow trading strategy popular strategy that invests in the ten stocks with the highest dividend yield in the Dow Jones Industrial Average. We examine a newer variation of this strategy that involves investing in the five highest dividend yield stocks from each sector of the S&P 500. We compare returns of this this strategy to those of the Dogs of the Dow and to those of the S&P 500. We find that this strategy has higher raw returns than both the Dogs of the Dow and S&P.
