Every week for the past 8 years I have been trading and testing new twists and tweaks to this old time Dividend Investing strategy. The strategy is pretty simple, buy the dividend stock before the ex-date and sell for a small gain or collect dividend and move on to the next dividend stock. I have been averaging double digit returns per year ever since I have started this.
As you can see there are two statements here. I do teach several investing strategies but these two are the ones I track. In the next few weeks i'll start tracking all the different strategies to give student and potential students a better idea of what is working and how well. I'll be setting up a separate page to see all the different strategies.
Both of these accounts started with 100k, both are margin accounts, meaning: I am using my money and the brokers money. This can be risky if the market turns the wrong way but I am confident and this strategy is safe, and secure. If you want calculate returns on an all cash account, just cut the profit and loss number in half.
We are at the end of July and our accounts are 32% and 24% ROI so far for this year. Both accounts look like they might be breaking 50% for the year. Does this happen every year? For the last 8 years it has, but that is no guaranty it is going to continue.
July 24th is todays date, here is a snap shot of the two accounts we are keeping track of. Dividend Investing and Dividends On Steroids are the two trading strategies we are working. Both accounts started with 100k to make the math calculations easier. Account to the left shows 29K profit year to date. That is 29% return so far and the year has plenty more left to it. Account on the right has 23% ROI, great returns for both accounts.
Both of these accounts are margin accounts and that could be one reason for the high return but if you had an all cash account, you would cut these returns in half. Still higher than anyone else is doing.
Kellogg's is one company that you all have heard of, they have been around for over a hundred years. First discovered by a freak accident in a bakery. The corn flake was born and a new era of breakfast all started from someone's mistake. Kellogg's has not only changed Americas morning eating habits but also made its investors and shareholders plenty of money over the years, just look term chart: https://yhoo.it/2r7LcVJ, look at the bottom of that chart and see how often they have been paying out dividends to their shareholders.
Kelloggs' may have had its dips like everyone else. But look t the long term growth of the stock over all. Even a third grader can see what way that is going.
Just out of high school I decided to be self employed, after running a successful manufacturing business I had a problem of making more money than I knew what to do with. I started investing, after 23 years of investing I now want to share my strategy with a select few that want an extra edge in their own investing.
