"...straightforward, commonsense approach to the insights, guidelines, and tools needed for long-term, profitable stock-market investing."--Shirley A. Lazo, Barron's. Build a Stock Portfolio That's Safe, Prudent, and Profitable in Any Market. The Dividend Rich Investor simplifies and demystifies dividend-oriented investment, focusing on stocks that have long-term records of high and growing dividend yields using Standard & Poor's highly regarded procedures for evaluating stocks. Written by editors of S&P's weekly investment advisory, The Outlook, this guide gives you lists of dividend-rich stocks, tips on selecting "free" stocks, red-flag signals that say "avoid this stock," and everything the individual investor needs to construct a winning portfolio.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best investment advice January 20, 2000
The dividend investing approach illustrated in this book is perhaps the most under-rated, under-promoted investment strategy. It's not as exciting as investing in internet stocks, but it's very easy to implement and it can create an amazing income for life. I especially recommend this book for young investors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dividends, the key to investing success.. January 3, 2005
This is a very good book, and simple to read for even novice investors. A note, the entire book deals only with US listed stocks, so, to buy any of the stocks listed here, you need a broker with access to US markets.

The book covers compounding of dividends, a very, very important subject. It also warns about selecting stocks with yields that are too high, and unlikely to be maintained, or stocks which have a high yield, but are cyclical.

This is a very good book, for anyone, who might be considering thier retirement investment strategy.

A word of warning: This book is not about returns of 2000% per annum. Dividends are dull and boring. But, they make a good basis for investment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dividends are the benefits of owning a stock August 12, 2009
Now most investors and money managers buy stocks with the hope of short-term appreciation. Few buy them with the intentions of receiving dividends. However, when an investor purchases a company's stock, he or she becomes a partial owner in the business. As a benefit of being an owner, an investor receives a part of the company's earnings in dividends.

This book teaches readers about dividends, their importance, what to look for in a dividend-paying stock, how dividends pay for the stock, and much more. The last chapter lists selected stocks with good dividend records. This book is an excellent introduction to dividend investing.
