Attached is a list of the 20 highest yielding results. Which stocks would you buy from the DOGS of the S&P 500?

    While I am a follower of your blog, I don't always follow your conclusions about these picks. Of the stocks on your list F is what I would call cheap. I don't understand how CMI @ $140+ is a cheap stock.

    1. Thank you for your comment. Well, cheap is also a question of your definition criteria and growth predictions. CMI is a cyclic stock with relationships to the auto and trucking industry and its forward P/E is 12.40. They are solid financed and have nearly the same growth possibilities as F.
