Book Description

This is the eBook version of the printed book.

Millions of investors are struggling to build a nest egg in the face of today’s brutal market realities. For many of them, dividend investing represents the perfect low-risk approach. Over the past 80 years, dividends have accounted for over 44% of the S&P’s total returns. Now, there’s an up-to-date, practical, step-by-step guide to successful dividend investing.


Renowned dividend investing expert Paul Rubillo explains why dividend stock investing is the only long-term strategy that actually works, and offers a start-to-finish plan for achieving real financial stability. You’ll discover: what to do now, before you invest in anything; why asset managers and financial planners won’t help you pick the right dividend stocks; why cash-rich companies aren’t always a good investment; how compounding returns can make you a Dividend Millionaire; why dividend dates matter, and how to use them; how to find safe dividend yields, and avoid “dividend traps;” how to save money by periodically auditing your brokerage account; and when to sell, and how to use stop-loss orders to protect your profits.

1.0 out of 5 stars Highly dissapointing book. March 31, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
To be fair to Paul Rubillo, I am a subscriber to his website As a dividend investor, his website provides useful information when I am buying dividend stocks. That disclosure aside, "Be a Dividend Millionaire" was absolutely useless for a dividend investor.
The first 35 pages of the book was wasted on information telling the reader how to save money on household expenses. The same type of information that can be obtained from the financial section of any newspaper.
After the "Larry Winget" section, I kept reading fully expection to have an "AHA" moment. One or two tidbits of information that would add to my knowledge of dividend investing. To my dismay, what I read in "Dividend Millionaire" was a vague generalization of investing. The only chapter that specifically focused on dividend investing, chapter 7, had but a scant 10 pages about divideds. Following that information was a list of companies called Dividend Increasers, compiled in December 31, 2009. One would think Mr. Rubillo would add information that was not 15 month old. I was not expecting the magic formula for instant wealth, just perhaps something new to add to my knowledge base, sadly I found nothing.
In all candor, "Be a Dividend Millionaire", is not a book I would recommend to either a novice or veteran dividend investor. It is somewhat anecdotal and barely skims the surface of divided investing. It is the only book I have returned to Amazon.

1.0 out of 5 stars This book has nothing to do with dividend stocks April 22, 2011
Judging from the title, you'd think this book was about how to build your portfolio through dividend stocks, and how to identify/analyze them. You'd be wrong. The first quarter of the book is how to manage your expenses. The middle part of the book the author tells you stories about people daytrading and how his friends lost money because of their bad decisions. The last part of the book the author tells you how he daytrades. There's ONE page giving you a list of dividend stocks and why you should go to his website for the latest list and why you should subscribe to his newsletter. Are you kidding?

NONE of the info in the book is about investing in dividend stocks. The 5-star reviews here are obviously fake, as is this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Be a Dividend Millionaire March 16, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a well written and easy to read book - I finished it in one night. It conveys convincingly the advantages of investing in dividend stocks. Not a new idea, but Paul goes a step further by explaining the methodology used in his site (, to select such stocks. It also includes an engaging chapter on his life as a day trader. People in the trade will relate well to it.

Unfortunately, the book falls short on a critical aspect. It does not provide a methodology for building a portfolio. For example, if Clara has $100,000 and wants to star building a dividend driven portfolio, what are the steps she has to take? Yes, there are different lists of selected stocks in the site based on risk tolerance and yield levels - the ingredients - but the mixing instructions are nowhere to be found. A missed opportunity that should be addressed in future editions.

1.0 out of 5 stars What Dividend Strategy?????? April 19, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
He had 1 chapter on dividends and the rest of the book was about his web site and different phases of his life but not much on strategy. Not worth buying. For buying his book you should get free acess to his website.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a lot of meat here, but... June 19, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I agree with others who said this reads like a promo for, and that it's for beginners. It's inexpensive and a quick read (only 131 pages of REALLY BIG print) so it's not a real waste of time or money, but I didn't learn anything I didn't know already. You can always pick up an idea or two in any personal finance strategy book and this one is no different, but I guess that's the problem I had with it. I'm going to give it to my finance guy who says that - in some circumstances - he likes a heavy dividend approach, but in other circumstances he doesn't. Anyway, my take is that if you have a little time and haven't considered a place for dividends in your portfolio, this is worth checking out.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Tale of Two Books August 24, 2012
I've been investing since the early 80's, and I have read any number of investing books, and I have to say that this is one of the oddest books I have encountered. Not much in the way of hard information, it all seems insubstantial, but at the same time, nothing that set off any alarm bells. Until the eight and final chapter, where he takes a hard right turn and suddenly is talking about becoming a full-time stock trader! Huh? I guess I'm just a dumb main street investor that can't understand the subtle nuances of investing, but I can't get my brain to reconcile dividend investing, which would imply at least a degree of buy and hold investing to capture the dividends, and full time stock trading. And no effort is made in the book to reconcile what would seem to be two different investing methods totally opposed to each other. And according to him, he sold a family business that "provided my family and I with financial freedoms and flexibility" in order to become a full-time stock trader. But wait, there's more! He apparently also talked his wife into their selling their home (!) so that they would have additional capital should be encounter investing difficulties. Yeah, now there's a game plan that everyone should follow. What could possibly go wrong? This is not a book that I would recommend to anyone.
