The Ultimate Dividend Playbook: Income, Insight and Independence for Today's Investor



The Ultimate Dividend Playbook

Dividends may be the most misunderstood aspect of investing in stocks—to the extent people bother to understand dividends at all. As editor of the monthly newsletter Morningstar DividendInvestor, Josh Peters offers sound advice on the long-term investment of capital with dividends as the guide.

Now, in The Ultimate Dividend Playbook: Income, Insight, and Independence for Today's Investor, Peters takes a fresh look at dividend-paying stocks and equips the individual investor for financial success through his dividend-achieving approach. He shows how to put the three dividend plays of income, insight, and independence into practice so that dividends will put cash in your pocket regardless of the fads and failings of Wall Street. Peters also takes you through the insides of a corporation and the factors that allow it to pay and raise dividends, tells how to separate safe dividends from risky ones, and explains how to construct a portfolio of dividend-paying stocks to meet your financial needs.

Filled with in-depth insights and practical advice, The Ultimate Dividend Playbook will help investors find high-quality, dividend-paying stocks to fortify their portfolios for the long haul.
