The Dogs of the Dow strategy proposes that an investor invests annually in the ten Dow Jones stocks with the highest dividend yield.

Two Compelling High-Yield Opportunities

This week’s Weekly addresses two compelling high-income opportunities (one of our own, and one from a Blue Harbinger member, Michael F). First, an attractive high yield bond that offers a double digit yield.
