Dogs of the Aristocrats

An often cited investment strategy is the Dogs of the Dow. This strategy involves investing an equal dollar amount, on the first business day of a given year, in the top ten yielding Dow stocks as of the last business day of the prior year.

I thought it might be interesting to look at the top yielding stocks from S&P's Dividend Aristocrats. I have done no back testing of returns for this strategy, but below, I have listed the top yielding Aristocrats as of 1/26/2006. The stocks highlighted in yellow are in the running for inclusion in the Dow Dogs for 2007:
