Foreword

While more than half this new collection of Dow Industrials is too pricey and reveals only skinny dividends, the ten lowest priced Dogs of the Dow are worth consideration. This month three of the ten live up to the ideal of having their annual dividends from a $1K investment exceed the single share price. Several more show prices within $10 of meeting that goal.

With renewed downside market pressure, it may be possible for Cisco (CSCO), Intel Corp. (INTC), Coca-Cola Co. (KO), Merck & Co. Inc. (MRK), and Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ) to join the three elite lowest priced high-yield Dow stocks, Chevron Corp. (CVX), Dow Inc. (DOW), and Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA), (the three ideal dogs) and also fair-priced with their annual yield (from $1K invested) meeting or exceeding their single share prices by year-end.

After the Ides of March dip, and others yet to come, the time to buy the top yield Dow dogs continues to beckon.
