What are the Dogs of the Hang Seng?
They are the brothers of the Dogs of the Dow (Jones).
It is an (hypothetical) portfolio filled with Blue Chip stocks that hold the highest yield on January 1 of each year. The total portfolio hold the starting value of $100,000.00 divided in 10 equal part of $ 10,000 spend on each listing that qualifies.
Working Theory is that, because of their Blue Chip status and their dividends this should be a ‘winning’ portfolio.
On December 31 you sell them and buy the new 10 highest yield Blue Chip stocks, rinse and repeat.
