From the Inside Flap
Rather than emphasize price alone or a company's sector, products, or other analytical factors, the dividend-value strategy uses dividend-yield patterns to make buying and selling decisions. In simple terms: a stock is most attractive when it offers a high-dividend yield. As investors rush in to lock down the high yield, their buying pushes the price higher. Eventually the price reaches an area where the current yield is no longer attractive and buying stops. With no new buyers to push the stock price higher, the price begins to decline—and early investors sell and take their profits. Wright shows that, by understanding the historical dividend-yield pattern of a company, you will be better informed as to whether the stock offers much value, little value, or value that's somewhere in-between.
Four plus decades of research have shown that blue chip companies, those with long records of consistent, competent performance, are far more predictable than are upstarts or less established companies with erratic records of earnings and dividend payments. In short, the dividend-value strategy is a proven, commonsense approach that has ultimately led to long-term results. Dividends Still Don't Lie will show you how to master the stock market by successfully investing in high- quality, dividend-paying blue chip stocks.

I phoned Kindle Help-Desk and they were unable to resolve this difficulty. I tried downloading the Kindle version to my desk computer, only to find out that I could not print the tables or graphs for portable reference, e.g., beside a newspaper or a stock screen on the computer. Very frustrating!!! Kindle staff admitted that this was a problem that, to date (March 2011), has no solution. So yes, the content is good, but the Kindle version has major drawbacks.
First, read the book, cover to cover. Thankfully, it is a light, fast read, that at times is a bit on the repetitive side, but nonetheless very informative. Then set it aside for a week, during which time you allow your first impressions of the book to subside, and then read it again. After the second reading, put the book aside but in a prominent place, such as facing out to you on your bookshelf or on your desk, where you can see the title almost beckoning to you. Then, and this is the hard part, do the following:
Do what you normally would do when investing. If you are like most people, you'll lose money. That's OK, after all, you are only human and this state of affairs not only confirms that but also confirms that like your fellow man (or woman- it pays not to discriminate), you have absolutely no idea what you are doing. Then, one day, after having lost a tidy sum of money, this book will beckon you, and then, maybe, just maybe, you will see the light, and glean from it its carefully gathered wisdom over some four decades or so. You might be so taken aback by its very simplicity that you take the heretical step of subscribing to the Investment Quality Trends newsletter.
OK, all jokes aside now- for those of you who are sick of losing money in the stock market, or just plain tired of middling results in return for all of your effort and study of the market, this is the book you need to read and ultimately use in your quest to 1) preserve your limited and precious capital, 2) generate a respectable income and 3) grow your investment account.Read more ›
