Dividend investing made easier by just a little book. Can it really be that easy? What makes a great dividend stock and why should you be reading this book? Why are you wanting to invest in dividend stocks in the first place? Some investors buy stocks for monthly cash flow from the dividend checks they receive while others look for capital appreciation. What is the most appealing attribute to your stock acquisition? Top dividend stocks covers the best stocks and why they should be included into your portfolio. Is the stock yield the most important thing you consider when choosing a stock? How about the price trend? Profit and loss, PE ration? What is your deciding factor when it comes to buying dividend stocks? Consistent healthy yields are a great precursor to choosing a good stock, however the consistency can be scrutinized a little bit when you want the very best. 10 years of consistently increasing dividends will warrant the companies stock to be upgraded to an exclusive dividend stock list. 15 years of consistent dividend increases will move the company up the ladder to a more exclusive list just a bit. 25 years of increasing dividends or more whittles down the list of prestigious stocks to just 54 this year... That list is called the Dividends Aristocrats. Only one list will trump the Aristocrats when it comes to dividend payers, that would be the Dividend Kings. 50 years minimum of increasing dividend payouts and then the company will make this elite list.That is 5 decades of increasing yearly payouts. Dividend investing just got a little easier
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.
