A few weeks back, I revealed my proven 3-step process for a “do-it-yourself” 10% dividend yield.

I’ll sum it up for you in 5 words: buy stocks with “accelerating” dividends. That is, payouts that grow faster and faster every year.

It’s a double win!

Take Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines (RCL), a stock I focused on in a March 6 article (and still like today). Plenty of dividend investors look at RCL’s current dividend yield—a meager 2.0%—shrug and walk away.

I’ll show you why in 2 charts … well, make that one chart with 2 different layers.

It’s an income investors’ dream – banking regular payments without having to worry about a pullback for the pricey (and increasingly wobbly) stock market.

“Buy and hope” investors are, understandably, terrified today. They’ve bought their shares – and now all they can do is hope the market regains its footing.

We income investors prefer to calculate rather than gamble. It’s why we demand dividends.…

High Growth Dividends…

Yet these stocks still have modest current yields. Why? Because their share prices have soared along with their payouts:

… Power High Growth Stock Prices!

Everyone loves the dividend, but as you can see, investors usually don’t give enough love to the dividend hike. Not only do these raises increase the yield on your initial capital, but also they often are reflected in a price increase for the stock.…
