Dividends for cash flow, Investing for cash flow using dividend stocks is not a new idea. In fact this is a strategy that started over 400 years ago. Yes the stock market as we know it today got its start back in the 1590's. A bunch of Dutch businessmen got together and wanted to launch the biggest business in the world. Lacking funds for this endeavor, they offered new investors a share of the profit and literally went door to door selling shares to anyone and everyone. They made good on their promise by delivering over 18% average returns for 198 years before the company was bought out by the Dutch government and disbanded.
The strategy is pretty easy, buy the stock before the "EX-Date" and sell after "Date of Record", usually 2-3 days later. Their is no need to hold the stock all year to qualify for a dividend check, just the 2-3 day time period... Then move on to the next dividend stock.
Does this work with every dividend stock? Sorry... NO it does not. That is why I have created my dividend stock calculator. This software sifts through all kinds of data, does a few fancy calculations then gives me odds and probabilities of what stock is going to work for me to reach my cash flow investing goals. My current goal is simple enough... 1-2% per week for my efforts.
