Readers should note, however, that the book is ultimately a come-on for Miller's firm's management services. When the book gets around to focusing on exactly how to choose the right stocks, everything gets a little fuzzy. To paraphrase, "Well, sometimes we look here, and sometimes there, and sometimes over there..." This makes the book incomplete. The first two thirds is fabulous, the last part insufficient. Read the book, but look elsewhere for how to actually choose your stocks.
This is a really good book!
Miller hates bonds as much as I do......and advocates a 100% stock portfolio several times in the book.
Miller contends that an investor can construct a 100% stock portfolio that has lower risk and a higher return than a conventional 60:40 stock and bond portfolio.
Miller repeats the age old saying that "Dividends Don't Lie".......and we recently learned about how many managements can lie ala Enron and WorldCom. Miller calls the period 1990-2003 the Dividend Dark Ages where companies reduced the amounts of dividends paid and focused on increase stock prices.......including creative accounting....so executives stock options would be worth more to them.
Miller gives specific guidelines on how to select high quality companies with great prospects for long term increases in dividend growth.
Although Miller is more an active versus a passive investor, his technicques are likely to yield returns close to index fund returns.
Over-all an interesting read and his suggestion to replace a 60:40 conventional stock and bond portfolio with 100% dividend paying stocks is great food for thought.
I would suggest companion books to supplement this book including:
