I thought this would be a fun way to visualize the Dow stocks, and how they distribute their cash through dividends and buybacks. Most friendly on the left to least friendly on the right. Note that some companies, like Cisco and J&J, seemingly have a good yield but are net issuers of stock…(Note this says nothing about valuation.)….
First list would be Dogs of the Dow (Dividend Yield)
Second list is (Cash) Cows of the Dow (Dividends & Buybacks, aka Net Payout Yield)
