Yield On Cost’s Role In A Selling Decision – Seeking Alpha

Yield On Cost’s Role In A Selling Decision – Seeking Alpha: I recently received an email question, as follows:

On the list of stocks that have been dropped [from the annual ‘Top 40 Dividend Growth Stocks,’ some of them have been dropped for having a yield that is too low. So let’s say I already own [a stock], and two years later the current yield drops below 3%, but my yield on cost is still above 3%. I’m guessing you would drop [that stock] from the top 40 list, but would you sell it as well? Would I be correct in saying it depends on what the yield on cost is at that time?
