E Wiz Dogs: Do You Buy?

It's that most wonderful time of the investing year. Pundits offer tidbit tips to tempt traders to their tallies. These tempting trades I call "WizDogs" because Wall St. wizards wrought them.

The Wiz list below reveals fifty-five of those pundit favorites.47 tinted greenish show "WizDogs" with free cash flow yield exceeding dividend yield (so their cash income margin covers anticipated dividends). 

Top ten safe WizDogs, KHC, PEP, VFC, PG, SLF, LB, IBM, KO, EMR, & SPG dividend yields ranged 2.83%-3.52%. Cash yields ranged 3.32%-12.65%.

The Dividend Dogs Rule

The "dog" moniker was earned by stocks exhibiting three traits: (1) paying reliable, repeating dividends, (2) their prices fell to where (3) yield (dividend/price) grew higher than their peers. Thus, the highest yielding stocks in any collection became known as "dogs."  More precisely, these are, in fact, "underdogs".
