The Dogs of the Dow - Half Year Performance 2007

Previously, I talked about the dogs of the dow and how you could use that as a strategy. Below is an update for those that are interested in this investment strategy. The table includes the Dow component and it's year to date increase.

Please note that dividends are not re-invested, but are included in the rate of return.

As of June 4, 2007:

Verizon Communications15.9%
General Motors4.0%
General Electric0.3%

The overall rate of return for the first 6 months was about 6.6%.
The overall gain for the Dow in the same period was roughly 9.3%.

There were 2 components in negative territory (Citigroup was slightly in the red and Altria was in the red by double digits).
