Publisher's summary

The Fed today is not our friend. Its "low rates forever" policy means we must look elsewhere for yield. Dividend-paying stocks don't help. Blue chips don't pay more than 2% or 3%. On a $1 million portfolio, that's less than $30,000 in annual income. Not enough. There's a better way. Income investing experts Brett Owens and Tom Jacobs show you how to safely double, triple and even quadruple these yields. Turn that 2% that stocks pay into 6%, 7% and even 8% (for $80,000 on that million bucks) without doing anything risky.

In this book, Brett and Tom will take you beyond Wall Street's "blue chip BS" and create a portfolio that can actually generate meaningful income. It's a "no withdrawal portfolio" that relies entirely on dividend income and leaves your principal 100% intact.

Bank 8% income without worrying about interest rates, the Fed, or the economy at large. Learn how to retire on dividends alone and keep your capital 100% intact.

Critic reviews

"A must-read for any investor looking to find safe ways to get meaningful yields with principal protection. If you're looking for a way to construct an income portfolio that consistently churts out 6%-8%, this book is for you." (Jeff Remsburg, Editor, InvestorPlace)

"As a podcast host with over 300 interviews I can recognize when someone is knowledgeable and prepared, which describes Brett and Tom's work." (Charley Wright, Strategic Investor Radio)

"If you're retired or nearing retirement, this book is for you. Due to Fed interest rate policy, you'll be lucky to get 0.5% or $5,000 per year on a million bucks. You need to find a better way. Brett and Tom will point you to corners of the markets where you can earn a safe 6%, 7% or 8% return. That means you can withdraw safely $60,000 to $80,000 in interest and dividend income without dipping into your $1 million principal." (Richard Fields, retirement expert and investor)
