Dividend Yield for Stocks in the
Dow Jones Industrial Average

Updated: Wednesday, July-30-2014

Notes about the following table of dividend yields.
  • The "Estimated Dividend" for each stock below is our best estimate of the per share amount that will be paid during the next year, beginning on July-31-2014. Most companies pay dividends on a quarterly frequency; some pay annually or semi-annually. The amount, timing, and growth of each dividend is forecasted from several years of dividend history, provided, of course, that the company has an established track record. Otherwise, the most recent (perceived) dividend policy is extended.
  • Internal values have a precision of at least twelve decimal places. Displayed values, however, are rounded to either two or four decimal places.
  • Therefore, if you calculate the dividend yield by dividing the estimated dividend by the price using the rounded amounts in the table, you might get slightly different values. The correct values are those that are displayed.
  • The table can be sorted by clicking on the column headings of Stock (for an alphabetical listing) or Dividend Yield (for a descending value listing).
  • The "Dogs of the Dow" investment strategy is to maintain a portfolio that consists of the ten DJIA stocks with the highest yields. Conventionally, equal amounts are invested in each of the the ten stocks at the beginning of the year and held for one year. Clearly, the initiation time is arbitrary and one could begin the investments at any time. Further, the holding period could be modified such that when one of the top ten falls into the bottom twenty group, it could be replaced with the stock that rose into the top ten. The following table can be ranked by yield (highest to lowest) to facilitate implementation of the "Dogs of the Dow" strategy.
