2015 Dogs of The Dow - is anyone interested in Investing Success?

One of the time honored investing strategies is the Dogs of The Dow strategy.  This strategy involves buying the 10 highest yielding stocks in the Dow Jones Industrial Average (yield is dividend price divided by stock price).  Obviously, these stocks with a high dividend yield are slightly beaten down so they are poised for a big return.  And you get those high dividend yield.  A slightly different strategy is to buy the 5 lowest priced of the 10 Dow Dogs, this is now as Small Dog stocks.
