Everyone needs to invest, but where do you invest during bear markets?
The massive stock declines over the past year have eroded savings, but this doesn't mean you should stuff your money into a mattress. It needs to be put to work, getting some return so that it will grow. Smart investors will turn to high-dividend paying stocks to get a stable and growing stream of income. Dividend investing - which provides an income beyond any gain in the share price - may be the investor's best weapon. Dividends are safe, largely reliable, and maybe at the their cheapest levels in many years. While the best paying dividend stocks of recent years, such as financials, took a huge beating in 2008, opportunities will abound in 2010 and beyond - if you know where to look.
In The Little Book of Big Dividends, dividend stock expert Chuck Carlson presents an action plan for dividend-hungry investors. You'll learn about the pitfalls, how to find the opportunities, and how to construct a portfolio that generates big, safe dividends easily through the BSD (Big, Safe Dividends) formula. If you're a bit adventurous, Carlson has you covered and will teach you how to find big, safe dividends in foreign stocks, preferred stocks, ETFs, real-estate investment trusts, and more. This book:
It doesn't get any easier than this, and in these turbulent times, you can't afford to ignore the power of dividends. Read The Little Book of Big Dividends and gain a better perspective of how you can protect yourself for the future.
