From what I hear from readers these days, a lot of people out there are compulsively clicking the “refresh” button, living in fear of the next 500+-point drop in the Dow.

But is now the time to actually start panicking?

We’re going to dive into that question today. I’ll also reveal 1 fund that protects your nest egg with a unique form of “insurance” while handing you a huge 7.5% cash payout.

More on this lifesaving “pullback-proof” dividend a little further on. First, we need to talk about …

Why the Pundits Are Wrong (Again)

The market wipeout has had one extra element that’s added even more terror: dire warnings from the semiconductor industry, which sent Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), Texas Instruments (TXN) and Nvidia (NVDA) into free-fall and badly beat up the benchmark VanEck Vectors Semiconductor ETF (SMH).Read more

If you want to clobber the stock market – and double your money every two or three years – then buying companies with accelerating dividends is the easiest and safest way to do it.

And I’ve got good news for you: there are nine blue chip payers likely to raise their dividends next month. So why not “front run” this good news and consider these shares now?

The benefit of dividend hikes? Getting a fatter income stream is an obvious reason, but it’s just the start. A rising payout acts like a lever on a company’s share price, prying it higher and higher with every single dividend hike.… Read more

Moe Ansari, host of the popular Market Wrap radio show and podcast, asked me on air:

“Brett, how do you find dividend paying stocks that will double your money?”

He was intrigued enough by my analysis to ask me on his show, but I knew he was a bit skeptical as well. And that’s perfectly normal – even experienced investors and money managers like Moe think of dividend payers in terms of their current yields only.

Price appreciation potential often gets ignored, and the thought of achieving 100%+ profits from a safe dividend payer sounds absurd. But smart investors bank their payouts while their stocks double in price.…

My college buddy AC wrote to me after the bitcoin bubble crashed:

“You were very right! All the cryptos have CRASHED. Good call!”

I didn’t address the crypto situation much as it unfolded because I didn’t want readers mistakenly buying into the bubble. Now that the air has come out of the crypto-mania, I hope it’s safe to talk about the real opportunity.

I’m not talking about Bitcoin. I’m talking about the blockchain – and the dividend growth opportunities that will unfold as this “megatrend” plays out in the coming years and decades.

The blockchain is the nascent technology that serves as the backbone for cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum.…

In late 2007, Citigroup (C) insiders – who should have known better – comforted themselves with a security blanket that, in hindsight, was better fit for a Goodwill donation.

“The dividend’s as safe as the next board meeting,” they told themselves as the yield on their shares climbed well above 10%. On a trailing basis, that is.

Next board meeting, their payout was chopped – and their shares dropped more than 90%.

Stock yields of 10%, 11%, 12% or more are usually too good to be true. Citigroup reminded us why ten years ago, and telecom disaster Frontier Communications (FTR) reinforces the point today.…

Today I’m going to show you a proven way to collect $5,094 in cash, on average, every month—without buying a single stock, bond or fund.

In fact, you won’t have to buy anything at all. (I’ll show you precisely how this works in a moment.)

That amounts to a nice $61,000-a-year income stream, easily enough for you to live on pretty well anywhere in America. And if you pick one of the cheapest corners of the country (like Indianapolis, say, where the cost of living is 16% below the national average), it’s a fortune!

Beyond the Obvious

It’s certainly way better than trying to squeak by on the 1.9% your typical S&P 500 stock pays—and that payout slips a little more each day as stocks march higher.…

It’s usually the last place dividend fans look for big yields and surging payout growth—but it should be one of the first.

I’m talking about the technology sector. And before you dismiss me as crazy, check out this chart.

The Home of Payout Growth

What you’re seeing here is the dividend-growth rate of the Technology Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLK) compared to the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY), representing the market as a whole, over the past 10 years.

Sure, the blue line is choppier than the orange one—but that’s a small price to pay for a 1,000%+ income boost!

And as I showed you on May 15, there’s a direct link between a soaring dividend and a soaring share price.…
