With 2012 right around the corner, I want to talk about one simple step you can take right now to greatly improve your financial life.
During 2011, dividend income investors have many reasons to be thankful.
Over the course of this volatile year for stocks and shares, many people, in the quest for profits, have jumped in and out of the market.
But as we all know, trying such timing tactics is nearly always a losing game unless you know when a company is historically undervalued or overvalued.
As a result, many investors have paid the price in portfolio losses.
Unless they were a Dividend Income Investor.com subscriber
Now here’s the best news. Those who have become a premium content subscriber at Dividend Income Investor.com can relax about their investments, unlike the millions of Brits and others who are worried about their financial future.
It’s interesting that high quality dividend paying companies, long shunned by the mainstream, have suddenly become market darlings.
It’s as if all of a sudden, the world has woken up to the fact that, over time, dividend investing is an incredibly smart and profitable way to invest over the long term. Welcome to the party!
As we approach the end of 2011, I want to take a quick look back and review how our Dividend Income Portfolio has performed over the year.
Several of our holdings at Dividend Income Portfolio have done notably well this year. Some are at or near 52-week highs, despite the fact the overall market is still 100s points from its 2011 high.
I should also note that we still have well over half of our money in cash awaiting investment in high quality historically undervalued dividend paying companies.
Of course, share price appreciation is great, but the key for our investing style is that most if not all of our companies continue to increase their dividends every year.
That’s how high quality dividend paying companies turn into ‘powerhouse’ income producers, as your return increases over the years, step by step.
While the world has struggled with a European contagion, problems in the US congress, a possible hard landing in China and stock market upheavals all over the world, the Dividend Income Portfolio has only one company that is valued lower since we have owned it.
And this has been done with our subscribers of Dividend Income Investor.com enjoying increasing dividend income.
Our Dividend Income Portfolio selection combines historical undervaluation at purchase, growth, income, and safety, and those Dividend Income Investor.com premium content subscribers who have had the patience and foresight to buy each company at or below its historical undervalued share price, have been amply rewarded.
It seems no matter what happens to the FTSE100 Index on a day-to-day basis, our “buy-and-monitor” investment strategy continues to excel. Here’s to 2012, and more dividend income to be had!
