As a beginning investor, I have recently read a lot about the stock market in general and dividend investing in particular, which is what led me to this book. Peris writes well and the book is easy to read, but I didn't feel like I got much value from it. The book is about 160 pages, which is fairly short, yet I think most of the key information in it could be expressed in about 100 pages if a lot of the redundancy were avoided. In fact, the main investing strategy outlined in the book can be summarized in a single sentence: Invest for the long term in dividend-paying stocks with good yields and consistent dividend growth because such stocks have been shown historically to provide solid returns. I think this is good advice, but one doesn't really need to read this book to figure it out. Prior to reading this book, I had already determined that long-term dividend investing was a good strategy based largely on what I gleaned for free from various blogs, websites, etc. I didn't get much in the way of new insight from the book, except perhaps for Peris' take on the current "Trader Nation" mentality that de-emphasizes dividend investing.

[Brief digression: Speaking of free information from websites, two sources that I've come across that are very helpful for finding good dividend stocks are: (1) The Dynamic Dividend at [...] It not only provides up-to-date news about dividend stocks, but it has a great list of "Dividend Dynamos" -- companies that have paid consistently increasing dividends for many years. (2) The "Dividend Champions" list at the DRiP Investing Resource Center at[...] It is a detailed list of dividend stocks that includes information about recent dividend payments and growth trends.

The Strategic Dividend Investor is an excellent guide to investing in stocks. Dividend paying stocks outperform non-dividend stocks by a wide margin and this book does an excellent job of explaining why. However, I am deeply dissatisfied with the Kindle edition of the book. Much of the value of this book is in the research and data that Mr. Peris has developed. Most of this information is presented in the form of detailed graphs and tables that are completely unreadable on the Kindle. So buy the physical book; it is well worthwhile. But don't buy the Kindle edition. My 3-star rating is an average of 5-stars for the book and 1-star for the Kindle edition that I made the mistake of buying.

Peris makes a series of excellent points on dividend investing. His historical basis in Graham, Williams, Smith, Arnott and Berstein is well presented. The case for investing in dividend paying companies is made with factual strength. More than 90% of the Total Return of the S&P 500 is the result of dividends paid and reinvested. While correlation is not causality, as he observes, it is good reason to dig deeper. Significant examples are worked through. The examination of the cash flow statement from publicly traded firms is thorough without being intimidating.
The bibliography could be more extensive, but it is representative.
Brief, to the point and strongly argued, it will be very difficult to refute such strong arguments in favor of the wise investor vs. the inconsiderate speculator. Enjoy the read.

Peris makes a clear-cut case for dividend investing in a writing style that is engaging and accessible. Whether you live on Main Street or Wall Street, this is a great bet for anyone looking for actionable and effective investment advice. This book helps to narrow down what can be a dizzing array of investment options and helps readers with a game plan that will likely benefit their portfolios.

"The Strategic Dividend Investor" is a well written and informative guide to a rock solid investment strategy that has, unfortunately, been largely overlooked for the past two decades. Peris takes the time to educate the reader on the fundamentals of company valuation without bogging down in analytics. A pleasure to read without ever being campy or dumbed-down, "Strategic Dividend Investor" fills an obvious void in the realm of money management publication: a book sophisticated enough in content to satisfy the needs of the investment professional while being witty and accessible to those managing their own money.

Thanks, Daniel!

This is a book for anyone who is serious about investing should read whether one has ten thousand dollars or ten million.
The author clearly outlines a sensible longterm strategy. I strongly recommend this book for the new investor as well as the
Seasoned investor. The book might be considered too basic for some but the message is so on target that it should be read by all
The writing is simple,clear, and to the point.

I read "The Strategic Dividend Investor" from cover to cover in two sittings, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Peris makes the case for a disciplined approach to dividend investing with vigor, clarity, and wit. One of the better books I have read on investing (and I have read many)--highly recommended!
