Today I’m going to show you how to grab two growing income streams—in just one buy. Plus, we’re going to bank double-digit price profits to boot.

The strategy? Simple: we’re buying dividend-paying stocks poised to spin off one of their businesses into a brand new dividend-paying stock. The result? Two or more quarterly dividends where there used to be just one.

Two other things you should know: our “new” dividend(s) will likely grow even faster than our original payout! And we won’t have to do anything to get this extra cash.

The Profit Power of “Dividend Splits” 

The dividend-growth wave this “dividend split” can unleash is massive.… Read more

President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping have agreed to disagree. For now. Is this a big deal, little deal or no deal for our dividends?

The outcome wasn’t much of a surprise. Stocks have done their part by politely rallying. My real concern is the lack of dividend deals left on the big board.

The S&P 500 is up almost 18% year-to-date. Sure, stocks were due for a bounce heading into the year (as we discussed in late December.) But still, a relentless rally wipes out a lot of bargains.

Remember the sale on industrial cash cow Ingersoll Rand (IR)?… Read more

Is it time to tariff-proof our dividends (again)?

Let’s look at our favorite payers with respect to a potential trade war. Could tariffs derail the 7.2% gravy train I’ve put together for you? Let’s rewind to the last time protectionism flared in America, 17 years ago, to see how some of our stocks and funds performed during the last trade tiff.

On March 20, 2002, President George W. Bush whacked steel imports with tariffs ranging from 8% to 20%. The duties stayed in effect until December 4, 2003. The European Union was unamused and hit back with tariffs of its own.… Read more

If you’re confused about the direction of interest rates, don’t worry—Fed Chair Jerome Powell can’t figure it out either!

And today I’m going to show you 4 “Powell-proof” stocks set to explode in 2019—whether rates take off or freeze in place. First, back to Powell.

An Epic Flip-Flop

You may recall October 3, when the Fed chief, momentarily forgetting his words can tank the market, said, “We’re a long way from neutral, probably,” in reference to rates.

Here’s what followed:

Loose Lips …

Powell has since changed tack. His new line? Rates are now “just below” neutral.

Traders betting through the Fed Fund futures market took the bait.… Read more

Here’s the truth about the whole “sell in May and go away” strategy—following it will cost you huge gains and income. And if whipsawing markets have you thinking of cutting back on stocks this summer, you need to reverse course now.

Consider this: in the 9 years since the financial crisis, this “advice” only worked 3 times. And by “worked,” I mean you would have sidestepped a decline in the S&P 500 by sitting out from May through October. Those are crap-shoot odds!

Selling Low and Buying High

And the wins you would have passed up are enough to make any investor weep.…

Let me show you 3 headlines I ran across last week:

“Tax Cuts and Confidence Drive Surge of Payouts”
—Barron’s

“Global Dividends Break New Record in 2017, With More to Come for the Year Ahead”
—Institutional Asset Manager

“Trump’s Tax Cuts in Hand, Companies Spend More on Themselves Than Wages”
—New York Times

What do they have in common?

They’re all blaring out the fact that American companies have so much cash that they can’t ship it out to investors fast enough! Funny thing is, the herd is completely ignoring this fact. Check this out:

The Black Sheep …

We’re looking at the performance of the Vanguard Dividend Growth ETF (VIG), a good benchmark for stocks that consistently grow their dividend payouts, compared to the benchmark SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) as of March 1.…
