The Stock Picker's Guide to Value

(New York)

Value stocks have been in a slump for a decade, with growth consistently outperforming. That acknowledged, there is still something to be said for buying beaten up stocks, which seem to have less downside than highly valued growth names. But how to do it? Try an old stock picker's favorite: buy the ten stocks with the highes t dividend yield s in the Dow, a strategy which has historically performed well and is called the "Dogs of the Dow". These stocks tend to have great dividend yields, and generally outperform the index as a whole. The bottom ten right now are: Verizon, IBM, Pfizer, Chevron, Exxon-Mobil, Merck, Coca-Cola, Cisco, Procter & Gamble, and JP Morgan.

FINSUM : This sounds like a solid bet, though because of the group, you are buying them with no real catalyst.
