Where To Find 10% Yields At 20%-30% Discounts

| June 20, 2022

Get your dip-buying lists ready, because it’s almost time to pounce. Just recently, I explained to investors that, as a contrarian, we only want to fully dive into the market when we have a clear edge—the kind of edge you get when Wall Street has fully capitulated: “We only want to fully invest when the regular investor has […]

Thanks to the market’s selloff, we finally have some dividend deals out there. In a moment, I’ll highlight a five-pack of sweet-paying dividend stocks (as in, 4.0% to 11.3% yields) that are cheap cash cows. It’s important that we focus on value, cash flow and yield as we cherry pick the bargain bin. More pain is likely […]

These 7%-12% Dividends Are In The Bargain Bin

| May 11, 2022

Mid-cap dividend stocks are the best bargain on the board right now. I love them because lame income investors don’t consider them. They fixate on: Large-cap stocks: For dividend safety. Small-cap stocks: For dividend growth. Meanwhile many great under-the-radar mid-cap stocks sit between $2 billion and $10 billion in market capitalization. They sit in a “sweet spot” that accommodates […]

Think back just four months: first-level investors were babbling on about “transitory” inflation and clambering for crypto and profitless tech stocks. No more! The world has shifted. Russia’s war on Ukraine—a disaster on a human level first and foremost—has upended, well, everything. Crappy crypto and bankruptcy-bound techs are out—and secure payers that benefit from today’s trends are in. (I’ve […]

Here’s the surest, safest way to double our money in any kind of market. This works whether we’re comparing 2019’s roaring bull run or 2022’s blabbering bear: Buy the dividends that are growing the fastest. Over long time periods (months to years), stock prices follow their dividends. For better or for worse! It’s that simple. When a […]

3 Copper Plays For Wall Street’s Unsung Surging Metal

Russia’s reckless (and, sadly, increasingly ruthless) invasion of Ukraine has put a spotlight squarely on the commodity markets. Many of them have already taken off to the moon. Crude oil, of course, was the first to hit orbit. But there’s one hard asset that’s still flying under the radar—at least for now. And this commodity just so […]

My Top CEF Investing Strategy Delivers 11% Payouts, 83% Gains

| March 2, 2022

I’m about to reveal my very best strategy for pocketing 20%+ upside (and 7.8%+ dividends) from high-yielding closed-end funds (CEFs). It’s a “rinse and repeat” move that can help you grab the biggest gains from these potent income investments, lock in those wins, then sidestep the pullbacks. (I’ll also show you two ridiculously cheap CEFs throwing […]

3 REITs With A Hidden “Double Shot” Of Upside (With 62%+ Dividend Growth)

| February 16, 2022

There’s a “double shot” of upside waiting for us in real estate investment trusts (REITs) right now, and some of these companies—like the 3 we’ll discuss below—are so stuffed with cash they can’t hike payouts fast enough! REITs are among our favorite dividend plays because: They’re “pass through” entities—REITs own property ranging from apartments to […]

How To Earn Up To 12x More Yield Than The Market

How To Earn Up To 12x More Yield Than The Market

“Buy and hope” investing has never been more hopeless. With bond yields doing a “moonshot” to 1.8%, they are now looking down at the S&P 500’s sad 1.3% yield. Still, let’s admit—these aren’t enough for us to be able to retire on dividends alone. Plus, we’re seeing serious volatility as the Federal Reserve hits the Pause button […]

Once upon a time, it was hard to find an income strategy much better than the idiot-proof “Dogs of the Dow.” And hey, in this wild market in which the S&P can drop 2% in a couple of hours, this sounds pretty good. Let’s buy some blue chips and earn 3x more income than the broader […]
