It’s time to think about year-end strategies.
We already know:
And while some are ridiculous and unworthy of attention, we have three favorites, including the “New Year’s Resolution,” and “the Dogs of the Dow.”
The Dogs of the Dow 2019
With the Dogs of the Dow, you’re simply buying the highest yielding 10 Dow Jones stocks that fell out of favor, investing an equal amount in each, liquidating by January 1 of the following year, and repeating for nearly predictable rewards.
Even better, it's easy to use, and it performs well.
The way you pick the Dogs is very simple.
When the year starts, look at the top 10 yielding dividend stocks in the Industrials. Invest equal amounts of money in all 10 stocks. Then, hold onto those stocks throughout the year. At the end of the year, we do it all over again.
While some, including Barron’s once reported that the “Dogs of Dow Investing Strategy no Longer Works,” that’ not true. Others have noted that research confirmed back in 2007 that the Dogs of the Dow is no longer a successful concept.
And still others argue investors are barking up the wrong tree with the theory.
While 2007 was flat, followed by a 38.8% decline in the Dogs for apparent subprime reasons, the Dogs have returned a gain every year since.
In fact, in 2009, they were up 16.9%. In 2010, they jumped 20.5%.
In 2011, there were up 16.3%. In 2012, they jumped 9.9%. In 2013, they returned 34.9%. In 2014, they returned 10.8%
In 2015, they did okay, returning just 2.6%.
In 2016, the Dogs returned 16% on average. So, the idea that the theory is dead is laughable.
In 2017, the Dogs of the Dow returned 19% for the year.
The best way to trade the 2018 Dogs of the Dow is to diversify among all 10 trades. You can look into call options on each. Or, if you prefer an ETF, the ELEMENTS Dogs of the Dow (DOD) ETF provides exposure and diversification.

New Year's Resolutions
This is the time of year when we buy one beaten down diet stock and watch it jump around the time of year when Americans (about 90% of them, according to Johns Hopkins Medicine) make their New Year's resolution to lose weight, diet, and exercise more, which usually ends in passing on the resolution until next year.
We all have weight to lose. We get motivated and say next year will be different. We join the gym. We join a weight loss clinic. We’re really going to do it this year.
Weight Watchers (WTW) for example has been an interesting way to trade the New Year’s weight loss resolution. Over the last two years, WTW has run on this very idea.
2018 could be just as rewarding, especially on oversold conditions.
