Dogs of the Dow

by astanhaus


My secret’s out, Babe finally noticed my dog tag’s engraving. Gasping for breath, she asked, “Why PFE? Do you have a secret lover??”

Confession…I invest in The Dogs of the Dow.

(click on the bold-faced vocab words:))

When investing in The Dogs of the Dow, I pick only the cream of the crop. More specifically, the ten stocks with the highest dividend yields.

When one of my pups is doing exceptionally well, I like to accessorize with a dog tag engraved with its ticker symbol. What can I say, I’m a proud momma!

I already have on my January 2014 to-do list to adjust my portfolio with the new dogs and melt down my tags accordingly.
