You can read about my previous post here: Dogs of the Nifty 2015 Update.
The returns of the strategy for 2016 are as follows:
Dogs of the Nifty: 23.52
Small Dogs of the Nifty: 45.50%
S&P CNX 50: 4.17%
The strategy had a strong beating in 2015 and at the end of 2015 had not outperformed the Nifty over the previous 3-5 years. However it has trashed the indices this year (2016). This just shows how unpredictable the markets are and the importance of being married to a strategy for life.
You can see some return statistics in this spreadsheet.
The Dogs of the Nifty and the Small Dogs of the Nifty for 2017 are as follows: See this spreadsheet of how we arrived at the selections:

We will continue to track the returns of this strategy over time.
