Focus on Life, Not the Market - Invest in Dividends
Not many average investors know that dividends are responsible for 44 percent of the S&P 500's returns over the last 80 years. What all investors should know is that, today, dividends present an excellent opportunity, especially with investors who have been burned in the dot com and housing meltdowns, desperate for sensible and less risky ways to make their money grow.
In his new book, Get Rich with Dividends: A Proven System for Earning Double-Digit Returns, Marc Lichtenfeld, a 15-year veteran of the equity markets, shows investors how they can achieve double-digit average annualized returns over the long term in any market. Compelling and accessible, Get Rich with Dividends explains exactly why dividend stocks are able to outperform the market in the long run with less risk, how to use past results to help predict future returns, what investors need to know in order to set up a strong portfolio, and much more including:
- How using Lichtenfeld’s proprietary 10-11-12 System, investors can achieve average annual returns of 12 percent or more, if they know which stocks to invest in and how to do so -- even with below average growth in the share price
- Chapters dedicated to understanding the importance of compounding dividends, dividend growth, Direct Reinvestment Plans (DRIPs), the pros and cons of adding foreign stocks to your portfolio and how to invest in options the smart way
- If the market is weak, it's a great time to buy dividend stocks as yield will be higher and reinvested dividends will buy stocks cheaper. In fact, for a long term investor reinvesting dividends, a weak market is the best thing that could happen to them.
“The beauty of this investment system is that it is extremely simple to understand and takes up almost none of the investor's time,” Lichtenfeld. “Investors don't have to constantly watch over their investments and can live their life and focus on other things besides their investments, secure in the knowledge that the system is working and they are accumulating wealth or generating the income they need every quarter.”
