Ok, I have set up a new tracking portfolio using the top 50 greater than $100m from the official screen. In doing so, I did catch (blush) a mistake in my Dogs approach (it was not always looking back exactly a year) and I have fixed that mistake. It did not have a huge impact, but did increase the Dogs approach from about $238k to $246k.

GILD, PBI and GME would make my Formula approach - so decent chance I'll get some dogs in January.
Here are stocks new to my tracking approach in past year. I have not shown this to be a good indicator.

It is interesting how far above the 52 week low some of these names are. I have owned AWRE, RGR and TRNC (formerly Tribune) in the past.
Here are the stocks on list with over a 2.6% yield.

Of course my formula approach drops down to 2.4% but market cap is > $600m.
Actually, this illustrates a problem of just using formulas and relying on Yahoo Finance, which is becoming less reliable. PDLI announced they had stopped their dividends August 4th. I will go back and retroactively pull them out of dividend pool. I try to fix these when I am aware of them.
