2019 is right around the corner and it is time for The Part Time Investor to start looking at re-balancing his portfolios. My first step is to analyze my Dogs of the Dow portfolio on M1 Finance. Part of the strategy is to select the top ten paying dividends by yield from the Dow Jones Industrial Average index and hold them for the whole year.
According to my research utilizing Yahoo Finances free tools I was able to determine that JPMorgan Chase & Co (JPM) will be a new Dog for 2019, the other nine remain the same.
