Everyone needs to invest, but where do you invest during bear markets?
The massive stock declines over the past year have eroded savings, but this doesn't mean you should stuff your money under a mattress. It needs to be put to work getting some return so that it will grow.
Smart investors will turn to high dividend paying stocks to get a stable and growing stream of income. Dividend investing-that provides an income beyond any gain in the share price-may be the investor's best weapon. Dividends are safe, largely reliable, and maybe at the their cheapest levels in many years. While the best paying dividend stocks of recent years, such as financials, took a huge beating in 2008, opportunities will abound in 2010 and beyond-if you know where to look.
In The Little Book of Big Dividends, dividend stock expert Chuck Carlson presents an action plan for dividend-hungry investors. You'll learn about the pitfalls, how to find the opportunities, and will learn how to construct a portfolio that generates big, safe dividends easily through the BSD (Big, Safe Dividends) formula. If you're a bit adventurous, Carlson has you covered, and will teach you how to find big, safe dividends in foreign stocks, preferred stocks, ETFs, real estate investment trusts, and more.
- Contains the simple tools, strategies, and recommendations for finding big, safe dividends
- Helps you put a complete portfolio together that pays dividends every month
- Show you the top dividend paying stocks with their dividend payment dates
It doesn't get any easier than this, and in these turbulent times, you can't afford to ignore the power of dividends. Read The Little Book of Big Dividends and gain a better perspective of how you can protect yourself for the future.
Tips for Successful Dividend Investing

2) Buy them at attractive prices.
3) Reinvest the dividends. It’s a recipe I’ve followed in my monthly newsletter on dividends and dividend reinvesting, DRIP Investor, which I’ve been writing for nearly two decades. Partly because I believe the timing has never been better for dividend-paying stocks – and partly to dispel many of the myths about dividend investing I see espoused by so-called “experts” – I decided to write a book on dividend investing, The Little Book of Big Dividends. My book is a blueprint for successful dividend investing. In the book, I walk you through the basics—what a dividend is (and isn’t); why, how, and when companies pay dividends; and why some companies pay big dividends while others pay no dividends at all. I also discuss the importance of size and safety of dividends when considering dividend-paying stocks, as well as the ability to buy attractive dividend-paying stocks directly via DRIPs and direct-purchase plans. I also provide you with a simple yet powerful formula for finding what I call “Big, Safe Dividends” (BSDs). My “BSD Formula” takes into account factors most critical to the safety and growth potential of a company’s dividend and can be used by any investor to find attractive dividend stocks. Making market predictions is typically a fool’s errand. However, I’m pretty sure stocks won’t be as strong in 2010 as they were in 2009 nor as weak as they were in 2008. My guess is that you will see a more “grind-it-out” type market environment in 2010, one in which investors weigh risk as much as return and play more defense. In such an environment, dividend-paying stocks are especially attractive. However, you’ll need a guide to steer you to the best dividend investments and away from worst. Consider The Little Book of Big Dividends your personal financial “GPS,” pointing you to dividend riches in 2010 and beyond.
‘…presents an action plan for dividend-hungry investors…’ (The Star.my, September 2010).
"This is a book aimed at serious investors who want to shore up their portfolios with a time-tested stock asset. Carlso is a clear writer [and] makes his case very well for the power of dividends.".
“Provides excellent analysis. . . should be an important component of a private wealth adviser’s discussion with clients about sources of long-term investment return and the critical importance of reinvestment in building wealth. Carlson addresses portfolio diversification and risk management in an accessible way. Readers will appreciate the manner in which he ‘names names’ to paint a clear picture of how excess returns can be achieved through a simple and time-tested investment formula. He also underscores the need to supplement selection formulas with fundamental research in order to make optimal investment decisions.” (Financial Analysts Journal)

NOT a book on dividend stocks for income but to use them for reinvestment for higher total returns over time, so the title is misleading.
Book's physical size is so small that it is hard to read quickly through the concepts. Formula is explained poorly too.
Cute chapter names don't tell what the chapter is about. How about "The World is Your Oyster" chapter 4, how does that name help you identify the contents? The other chapter names are just as stupid like a children's book. As you go through you can NOT find the named concepts referred to again since it has NO INDEX. Was this written by a cat lady with nothing to do at home?
An irritation to read to all but the most un-knowledgable reader. Go to his website and don't waste time on this book: http://www.bigsafedividends.com
Good start but could use an update. Brokerage account minimum balances and trade fees are substantially lower now than at the time of writing. Still a good read for novice investors.
