"Most investors know the critical role dividends play in generating long-term returns. Marc Lichtenfeld takes a big step beyond the conventional chatter about dividends to provide investors comprehensive strategies to help them choose the right dividend-paying stocks. In a low/no-yield world, this is a very useful tool."
— Aaron Task, Co-host, The Daily Ticker, Yahoo! Finance
"Marc Lichtenfeld's book is a timely, necessary, and easy-to-read reminder about the importance of dividend paying stocks. For a long time, especially during the tech boom, investors sacrificed steady dividend payments in favor of a stock's growth potential. Ultimately, however, stocks fell and these investors were left with neither cash nor capital appreciation. Don't let this happen again. Read Marc's book."
— Gregg Greenberg, Personal Finance Reporter, TheStreet.com
"In today's global financial environment, investors would be wise to empower themselves with knowledge and insight. Mr. Lichtenfeld delivers on that mission."
— Todd Harrison, founder and CEO, Minyanville Media, Inc., and author of The Other Side of Wall Street
"If you're looking for growth, invest in dividend stocks. If you're looking for income, invest in dividend stocks. If you're looking to reduce your risk, invest in dividend stocks. And to learn exactly how to build your fortune—safely and securely—invest in this book. It's a classic."
— Alexander Green, bestselling author of The Gone Fishin' Portfolio, The Secret of Shelter Island: Money and What Matters, and Beyond Wealth
The only book on dividend investing you'll ever need, Get Rich with Dividends introduces a proprietary plan for growing wealth—the 10-11-12 System—which shows you how to build a portfolio that can generate 11 percent yields and 12 percent average annual total returns. Compelling and accessible, it 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 you need to know in order to set up a strong portfolio, and much more.
With 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, how to invest in options the smart way, and everything else you need to succeed in the world of dividends, Get Rich with Dividends is essential reading for investors of all backgrounds.
Dividend investments are easy to set up and require little maintenance. Written by a 15-year veteran of the equity markets, this book is the ultimate guide to sensibly growing your money.
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.
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.
