All right you Australian Fools, gimme some goods.

I have run the Dogs of the Dow using the top 50 industrial stocks by market cap. Yeah, I know personal investor did it but wanted to check it out for myself.

Anyway, results as follows.

PAC DUN
BORAL
CSR
AMCOR
TEL NZ
GOODMAN
ORICA
SUNCORP
LEIGHTON HOLD
WESFARM

I cut off British American - will not invest in a tobacco company.

So, after doing this, me thinks this ain't the way to go. Assessing the US DOW system, it seems this method has the most validity when the market undervalues large market cap stocks. I do not really think the above list can be compared to a GM, P&G or whoever.

I would appreciate some thoughts and maybe another methodology to assess the Aust. Market.

Ciao
