From the Inside Flap

The only book on dividend investing you'll ever need, Get Rich with Dividends introduces a proprietary plan for growing wealth—the 10-11-12 System—which shows you how to build a portfolio that can generate 11 percent yields and 12 percent average annual total returns. Compelling and accessible, it explains exactly why dividend stocks are able to outperform the market in the long run with less risk, how to use past results to help predict future returns, what you need to know in order to set up a strong portfolio, and much more.

With chapters dedicated to understanding the importance of compounding dividends, dividend growth, Direct Reinvestment Plans (DRIPs), the pros and cons of adding foreign stocks to your portfolio, how to invest in options the smart way, and everything else you need to succeed in the world of dividends, Get Rich with Dividends is essential reading for investors of all backgrounds.

Dividend investments are easy to set up and require little maintenance. Written by a 15-year veteran of the equity markets, this book is the ultimate guide to sensibly growing your money.

From the Back Cover

Praise for Get Rich with Dividends

"If you want to get serious about your retirement, read Get Rich with Dividends. Lichtenfeld's step-by-step guidance shows you how to outperform the markets . . . outperform your broker . . . and outperform your highest expectations. Read this book. Listen to Lichtenfeld. Take action now . . . and smile all the way to the bank."
— Mike Ward, Publisher, Money Map Press

"Most investors know the critical role dividends play in generating long-term returns. Marc Lichtenfeld takes a big step beyond the conventional chatter about dividends to provide investors comprehensive strategies to help them choose the right dividend-paying stocks. In a low/no-yield world, this is a very useful tool."
—Aaron Task, Co-host, The Daily Ticker, Yahoo! Finance

"Marc Lichtenfeld's book is a timely, necessary, and easy-to-read reminder about the importance of dividend paying stocks. For a long time, especially during the tech boom, investors sacrificed steady dividend payments in favor of a stock's growth potential. Ultimately, however, stocks fell and these investors were left with neither cash nor capital appreciation. Don't let this happen again. Read Marc's book."
—Gregg Greenberg, Personal Finance Reporter,

"In today's global financial environment, investors would be wise to empower themselves with knowledge and insight. Mr. Lichtenfeld delivers on that mission."
—Todd Harrison, founder and CEO, Minyanville Media, Inc., and author of The Other Side of Wall Street

"If you're looking for growth, invest in dividend stocks. If you're looking for income, invest in dividend stocks. If you're looking to reduce your risk, invest in dividend stocks. And to learn exactly how to build your fortune—safely and securely—invest in this book. It's a classic."
—Alexander Green, bestselling author of The Gone Fishin' Portfolio, The Secret of Shelter Island: Money and What Matters, and Beyond Wealth

I have now read 4 or 5 books related to dividend investing and have implemented a system and have about 1/4 of my nest egg invested in dividend yielding stocks. I though that this book was the best of the ones I have bought because it does provide good detail and a plan or strategy for dividend investing.

But - the authors numbers and 'double-digit' returns are based on dividends of 7% or so. A lot of the stocks he talks about are 2-4% dividend stocks, but when he provides his strategy he suggest dividends of 7% or more.

Well, I'm here to tell you folks, the 7% or more dividend stocks are relatively few and the ones you find are mostly high risk. The big cap stocks, like Exxon, Conoco Phillips, Pfizer, Coca Cola, WalMart, etc. are generally in the 2-3% dividend range. When you screen for 7% dividend or greater stocks you begin to find much more risky stocks. Utility stocks (not so risky, but low growth) and mortgage REITs are the stocks you will find at 7% or more - generally. You will also find some like Pitney Bowes whose financials are a wreck.

Almost all financial authors make their books out to be better than they are. Get rich quick by reading my book. You just need to temper your expectations and take the get rich part with a grain of salt.

I do recommend this book.

I should say up front that I have met Lichtenfeld before. So I'm a bit biased toward liking his stuff. But that said, what I really liked about this book was that it goes so far beyond "why dividend stocks are cool." Marc shows you how a dividend specialist approaches income investing. You'll learn little tricks of the trade, like the fact that many companies offer a 5% discount on their stock if you reinvest your dividends. In other words, you buy stock XYZ for, say, $95/share instead of $100... and then you bank 100% of the dividends along the way. He also shows you how to increase your yield using a super-safe options strategy. These are the kinds of secrets you won't get from the Journal. You can definitely put these techniques and strategies to work - even if you're a beginning investor - and these markets are the perfect time, IMO.

I have just read through the first chapter -- Marc Lichtenfeld's philosophy is readily available online, google him -- but he is playing a lot of math 'tricks' on the reader. I think it is page 14 where he says to the effect that 12% returns are very easy, just look at Southern Co. for example, it returned 193% in ten years. Great!

Perhaps he expects the average reader will say, hmm... 193% over ten years, that 19.3% return per year, WOW. Just 12% should be SIMPLE!

But no. Remember compound interest? Compound 12% for 10 years: $100 becomes $112, which becomes $125.44, $140.49,....after 10 years you should be at $310.58, or up 210%. .... so in fact, even his examples just miss his own targets. I can only imagine what his typical results look like.

Anyway, the philosophy is sound, just read the book with a calculator handy and don't get over-excited at his results.

I've been an active investor and trader for about 10 years. Having studied and tried various strategies, I believe this one to be the surest and easiest way to make serious money over the long haul. Especially if you are young, this is the way to go.

Instead of trying to find the "hot stock", the kind of companies Marc talks about are the ones most likely to be stable. What's so great about this system, is you can actually make more money if the stock market goes down!!! That's not a typo. The reason is as you reinvest dividends, you can acquire more shares if the share price goes down versus going up.

How many stock systems will work in either an up or down stock market?

Read it, and pass it along to your kids.

I was excited to get this book and read through it quickly. There was one takeaway that is very important, and that is "time". As Marc points out a number of times throughout the book is that for this to truly work, one should have a ten year time horizon. At my age, I will probably pass this on to one of my grandchildren with the hope that they employ this strategy.

The investing ideas in this book explain the one real fool-proof way to get rich in the stock market. Buy the very best, large American companies that have been around for a long time, that have international exposure and long histories of paying and growing their dividends, and, by using DRIPS to re-invest their dividends and by leaving them alone, compounding interest will make you rich. The slow -moving tortoise beats the fast-running rabbit every time. While owning these shares may not be exciting and may be about as much fun as as watching paint dry, they will generate true wealth. I wish I'd adopted this approach to investing 30 years ago. It's a "no-brainer."

All adults should buy just a few shares of dividend producing stocks. All adults should buy their children a few shares of dividend stocks. Just a few shares of an electric utility will grow to hundreds as time passes. How many of you think an electric utility company servicing your home is going out of business? How many electric utilities have had their stock price go to zero? How many people are living in retirement on utility dividends? This book will guide you to a safe and secure retirement.
