Recipe for Dividend Riches
If you want the recipe for getting rich in the stock market, here it is: Find stocks with above-average appreciation potential and safe and growing dividends, and buy them at attractive prices.
My book, The Little Book of BIG DIVIDENDS (John Wiley & Sons), along with this Web site, shows you how to do just that. My book is a blueprint for successful dividend investing. In the book, I walk you through the basics—what a dividend is (and isn’t); why, how, and when companies pay dividends; and why some companies pay big dividends while others pay no dividends at all. Order The Little Book of Big Dividends here.
I also discuss the importance of size and safety of dividends when considering dividend-paying stocks, and I provide you with a simple yet powerful formula for finding Big, Safe Dividends (BSDs). This formula takes into account factors most critical to the safety and growth potential of a company’s dividend.
As a companion to the book, I have created this Web site www.BigSafeDividends.com. On this site, you’ll find up-to-date BSD (Big, Safe Dividend) scores, Quadrix® ratings, dividend and yield information, dividend-payment schedules, and other relevant dividend data on every dividend-paying stock in the Standard & Poor’s 1500 Index. The site provides literally a one-stop shop for all things dividends and is a powerful tool for researching dividend-paying stocks. And by the way, all the information is provided free of charge.
