Our Dividend Dog Indexes are designed to measure the performance of large cap equities with above average dividend yields. Unlike other high dividend yield indexes, the our Indexes do not include any qualitative screens, such as dividend growth, dividend consistency and coverage ratio. The indexes are based entirely on dividend yield, making them the only pure play dividend indexes available.
