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, TheStreet.com
"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

The Stooker book listed above, made a compelling argument for me for investing for income, but it suggests investing ETFs rather than individual securities. I found the math of this book, showing that dividends reinvested in good times and bad accelerate your returns, to be just what I was looking for. Even more, I could do the math to estimate the amount I would receive from my dividend investments 10, 15 or more years in the future.
In addition to the arguments for relying on dividends paid, rather than on the financial statements reported by the company or relying on the opinions of experts as to the reason a stock is good or bad, this book provides specific information on finding good dividend-paying stocks based on the payout ratio and a company's long term history of dividend payments. As someone who was "investing" in the only funds my employer allowed during the market turmoil of 1987, the bubble of 2000ish, and the 2008 mortgage crisis, I am pleased to have a strategy that will keep me from panicking during such times. A strategy that will let me know that I am receiving the same (or an increasing) dividend as I did when the market was high, and those dividends are buying shares of a good company at a good price.
To be fair to myself, investing this way was not really available in the past. When I saved for retirement through my plan at work, I was given a very few mutual funds to choose from and only allowed to change my investments once or twice a year (to teach me the value of investing I was told). But with discount brokers willing to reinvest dividends without charge, and with more liberal employer plans, I can do it now.
I still have some funds that I use to try other ideas (trading or whatever), but most of my money is in stocks which have paid a stable, if not increasing, dividend for years. It is going to stay that way. If I look at, for instance, the Dogs of the Dow, I am not looking to see if they are beating the S&P year to date. I am not planning to buy in January and sell or rebalance next January. I am looking at the dividend of the companies whose yield has put them in the dog category, seeing if it has been paid for 25+ years, seeing if they have been raising it. Get Rich with Dividends changed the way I invest.
