Dogs Of The Dow Jones: These Are The Cheapest Index Members

In the past, I've written more about cheap stocks. Due to the current market situation, there is a huge problem to discover cheap stocks. Today we classify stocks with a P/E multiple of less than 20 as cheap.

That's a risky way. Your expected yield will not be high but in the current situation, it's the cheapest play in the market.

Today I like to talk about the good old Dogs of the Dow Theory. Those are the 10 cheapest stocks of the Dow Jones index.

These are the results in detail:
