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.
