With 2022 just weeks away, it’s time to start looking at the Dogs of the Dow.

While some analysts have called the strategy antiquated, and useless, we’ve found success. 

While 2020 wasn’t a great year for the Dogs, they were up 20% in 2019.   In 2018, they were up about 1%, but still beat the Dow, which fell close to 6%.  In 2017, the dogs were up 19%.  In 2016, they were up 16%.  In 2015, they were up 2.6%. 

In 2014, they were up about 11%.  Better, all of the Dogs pay dividends. Look at this below:

As for the 2021 Dogs of the Dow, most are doing well so far.  Since January 2021:

  • Chevon (CVX) with a yield of 4.68% — ran from $82 to $115
  • IBM (IBM) with a yield of 5.24% – ran from $120 to $126
  • Dow (DOW) with a yield of 5% – ran from $54 to $58
  • Walgreens (WBA) with a yield of 4.06% – ran from $40 to $48
  • Verizon (VZ) with a yield of 4.83% — fell slightly from $57 to $53
  • 3M (MMM) with a yield of 3.31% – ran from $168 to $180
  • Cisco (CSCO) with a yield of 2.64% — ran from $44 to $56
  • Merck (MRK) with a yield of 2.95% — ran from $75 to $88
  • Coca-Cola (KO) with a yield of 2.98% — ran from $52 to $56
  • JP Morgan (JPM) with a yield of 2.35% — ran from $123 to $170

That’s a 90% win rate for the Dogs so far this year.

While we’re not 100% sure which stocks will make the 2022 Dogs of the Dow list just yet, we should know soon.  All we want to do is buy the new Dogs at the very end of the year, cash out at the end of the new year, and repeat.
