Your secret to buying
"money machines" that pay out
hard cash year after year...
How to quietly amass a fortune -- in any type of market...
Building a long-term fortune -- through both up and down markets -- requires two simple steps:
- Buy the best dividend-paying stocks, and
- Reinvest the dividends
Do this and you've instantly built a money machine.
But don't just take my word for it. Here's the difference reinvesting dividends makes, according to Ibbotson Associates:
If you had invested $1,000 in large-cap companies back in 1925, you could sell them today for about $98,560.
But had you reinvested the dividends, you'd be sitting on more than $2,982,240. And that's assuming you didn't invest another dollar since.
At Motley Fool Income Investor, we call this income investing, and we believe it is...
The best way to secure your financial dreams
Buying and holding dividend-paying stocks is the most reliable way to achieve financial security and independence. The strategy is especially successful because:
- It's low risk. Since these companies pay out cash, investors are more willing to hold dividend stocks through bear markets. Therefore, they don't fall as far or as quickly as non-dividend stocks. In fact, they become a magnet for investors seeking security.
- It helps you avoid the Enrons of tomorrow. Dividends don't lie. For example, between 1997 and 2000, Enron's "earnings" rose 69% but dividends only rose 9%. That's a sure sign something fishy was going on. Paper profits can fool analysts, but cold hard cash can't be faked.
- It earns much better yields with lower taxes. Although Obama recently raised the dividend tax rate to 20% for individuals making more than $400,000 (or couples making more than $450,000) a year, most folks pay just 15% on dividends.
- By reinvesting dividends, you "dollar-cost average" and get the power of compounding automatically. It improves your portfolio's long-term returns by buying more shares when the price is low and helping your profits multiply.
- Dividend stocks trump non-dividend-payers, even in down markets. According to Standard & Poor's, during 2008's market meltdown, dividend-paying stocks came out over 6% ahead of non-dividend-payers.
But a dividend alone doesn't guarantee success
Need proof? Look no further than financial companies like Bank of America and General Electric, which had to drastically cut dividend payments during the downturn in 2008.
Which is why you need a trusted source that digs deep into a company's financial statements and runs through countless scenarios to make sure it can continue paying its dividend.
That's why The Motley Fool has dedicated an entire team of analysts to helping you find the best dividend-paying stocks.
Our team, led by dividend-investing expert James Early, logs countless hours researching and crunching numbers before recommending a company to Motley Fool Income Investor members.
