Get Rich with Dividends: A Proven System for Earning Double-Digit Returns

Book description

A comprehensive guide to dividend investing that shows how to obtain double-digit returns with ease.

Dividends are responsible for 44% of the S&P 500's returns over the last 80 years. Today they 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. Designed to show investors how they can achieve double-digit average annualized returns over the long-term, Get Rich with Dividends: A Proven System for Earning Double-Digit Returns is the book you'll need to get started making money in any market.

The beauty of dividend investing is that it's extremely easy to understand and takes up almost none of the investor's time. The investor doesn't have to constantly watch over their investments, and can and focus on other things, secure in the knowledge that the system is working and they are accumulating wealth or generating the income they need on a quarterly or even monthly basis.

Using the author's proprietary 10-11-12 System, investors can achieve average annual returns of 12% or more, if they know which stocks to invest in and how to do so - even with below average growth in the share price.

  • Dividend investments are easy to set up and require little to no maintenance, and this book shows you how to do it.

  • A method so easy to use, you'll want to teach your children how to do it early, setting them up for financial independence and avoiding the problems that plagued many investors over the past decade

  • Full of expert advice from a 15-year veteran of equity markets.

By showing investors how to find and invest in these unique but conservative and proven stocks, Get Rich with Dividends is the only book on dividend investing you'll ever need.
