“...I am 69 years old and follow your site explicitly when it comes to buying decisions...”

“Paul and your staff - I really enjoy your commentaries and newsletters and especially dividend.com! And yes, I sometimes am an impulse stock buyer and have course gotten burned this way probably more than not. I try and avoid these temptations now.

I am 69 years old and follow your site explicitly when it comes to buying decisions and it works well for me. Here is my strategy: 1. Review all your high yielding stocks at least once a month. 2. Make sure the DARS rating is at least a 3. 3. Pick stocks that also yield at least 6% and especially if the dividends are increasing. 4. Review recent news, financials and analyst recommendations (I take analyst recommendations with a grain of salt though since some either own the stock and want to promote it or sold the stock and want to buy it back cheaper). 5. I narrow my selection to my top 25 picks from the above criteria. I am constantly updating these 25 picks by adding or removing them from my watch list depending on news, dividend changes, financials, etc. Your website is extremely helpful in this area. 6. Then I buy on a dip, never on an upswing. Not buying on an upswing may be right or wrong but this is my strategy? 7. If the stock moves 2% up form my cost, I sell. If the stock moves 2% down, I buy. I know I may lose some of the momentum form a further upswing, but I can always buy it again on a dip. 8. If the stock falls another 2% while I still own my original position, I buy the same quantity again. And again if it falls another 2%.

Of course, I scrutinize another buy to make sure it was because of a poor market or lack of buyer interest and not bad news about the company or sector. Anyway, this is what I do and it makes me money. I have been a consistent winner in the market for quite a while. I never make the big bucks from a stock but I keep plodding ahead growing at about a 12% yearly clip. Again, thanks for your website. It helps me immensely.”

– James J. Pupelis, Bensenville, IL

“...a guiding principle that produced a 14% return last year with Dividend.com's help...”

“Some years ago when I first came across Dividend.com I was shocked to see that of the 20 stocks listed as buys I owned 14. That was all I needed to know that the investment concepts were like mine. Even when the picks change, I still do my homework. The links to source material makes it easier to research and see if Paul's are in line with mine. Over the years I have made many blunders, but Pauls's concept of take a loss and move on have always been a guiding principle that produced a 14% return last year with Dividend.com's help. With a hyper active market I considered this a great return. I do have a blend of preferred stocks, buy write calls, bond funds and a large position in Apple which helped the return. I know Apple does not pay a dividend, sometimes you need to move from the dividend box on a great stock.”

– David Belitsk, Bryn Mawr, PA

“...I strongly recommend Dividend.com and what they do for the investor. It is the very best service one can subscribe...”

“Have been investing more than 44 years in equities and had not spent a lot of time looking at dividend stocks until about 1 1/2 years ago when I subscribed to Dividend.com. I have tried many different "systems" to invest and was not comfortable with any of the methods until I started buying dividend stocks on the Dividend.com best buy list.

Results have been very good even in this volatile market. I strongly recommend Dividend.com and what they do for the investor. It is the very best service one can subscribe. I have recommended Dividend.com to all my family and friends.”

– B. Knight, Georgia

“...completely transformed my investment perspective...”

“Subscribing to Dividend.com has completely transformed my investment perspective. The simple advice and daily emails are a great reminder that investments have a long term horizon and that dividends are where our wealth can be accumulated. Excellent work!”

– David, Chicopee, MA

“...my portfolio has risen to an all time high...”

“This is my second year with Dividend.com, and my portfolio has risen to an all time high, in spite of volitility and global uncertainty. The daily newsletter gives a nice overview of current market conditions. I especially appreciate "My Watchlist", where I can find dividend yields, ex-div days and the next payout information.”

– Mike K., Sacramento, CA

“...You really seem to care and want your customers to succeed...”

“I always check out your take on any Dividend Stocks I invest in. I like your rating system a lot. So far it hasn't steered me wrong. You really seem to care and want your customers to succeed. Paul seems to have a good handle on the market and sense for the pitfalls involved.”

– Robert Emerick, Northbrook, IL

“...gains of 25% plus in both my IRA and personal brokerage accounts...”

“Dividend.com has shed an incredible amount of light on my whole investing approach. I have enjoyed gains of 25% plus in both my IRA and personal brokerage accounts since subscribing to dividend.com. Also, Paul's newsletter's and articles are very down to earth and knowledgable.”

– Greg R, Massachusetts

“...Since joining I have improved my overall investing success in a time when most others are losing...”

“I trade and invest on a regular basis and over the years have subscribed to many financial publications and advisory services. As I have tried each and succeeded or failed using I haver reduced the number of advisory services to only two of which Dividend.com is one. I use their research, recommendations and ratings as well as their other tools to help me evaluate and select investments. Since joining I have improved my overall investing success in a time when most others are losing. I am very happy with the service and plan to continue with it.”

– John C, Clearwater, FL

“...The best service I have used...”

“The best service I have used. It is not for quick one day gains. If you are looking for an investment that pays a dividend this is a very good service.”

– Eileen, Pennsylvania

“...We trust your opinion and we are grateful to you for your wonderful website...”

“We are seniors and have only handled our own investments since the crash in 2008. We started watching Cramer and learned a lot from him. However, we would get scared when everything turned red and sell everything. We are doing much better with your stock picks. We trust your opinion and we are grateful to you for your wonderful website. We have a few CD's that are 5%; however, they are slowly ending. With your help and Scottrade we are able to invest without paying a financial planner. It is working for us!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU!!!”

– Janie Lossman, Rowlett, Texas

“...Dividend.com is especially helpful in assisting me in keeping track of dividend dates...”

“Dividend.com is especially helpful in assisting me in keeping track of dividend dates and especially the x-dividend date. I have many different stocks, some of which are DRIPS. Being able to easily find the x-dividend date is crucial in tracking which of your dividends are qualified, or non-qualified for income tax purposes.”

– Arthur Strohmer, Tinton Falls, NJ

“...I expect to earn around than $50k in dividends this year...”

“With a volatile market, I started to shift my investments to dividend paying stocks. I used the Monthly Income Generator to start. I have many of the recommendations and several others that are lower rated. Based on a spreadsheet that I created, I expect to earn around than $50k in dividends this year.”

– Tim McBurnie, North East Ohio

“...I've been investing for almost fifty years and this is the type of investments everyone should be making...”

“Following your advice my return was close to 18% last year. Not too bad!!?? I was always trying to be on the real movers, but what I found out was that I was at the end of the information line when it came to tips on buying the HOT ones. Subscribing to the emails that advise you what to buy has turned out to be really stupid. I've been investing for almost fifty years and this is the type of investments everyone should be making. Thanks for your thoughts and investment ideas.”

– Leonard D Jessup, The Villages, Florida

“...I have been following your recommendations for about 6 months now and the dividends on the 10 stocks that I have purchased have far exceeded any C.D. that is available...”

“I am a widow who has been trying to hold on to what IRA funds that I have. I have invested only in C.D.'s for several years. I cannot say that I trust anyone, firm, etc. with my funds so I no longer have a manager for my account. There is a history to my decision on that but will not post it here. I have been following your recommendations for about 6 months now and the dividends on the 10 stocks that I have purchased have far exceeded any C.D. that is available. I plan to continue to put a percentage of my funds into the stocks listed on your recommended stocks. I feel that you have indeed educated me in this area and I appreciate your candid daily updates.”

– Nancy J., Northwest Florida

“...My dividend portfolio that I put together at the end of 2009 is doing quite well...”

“It has been a great tool & resources for selecting dividend paying stock. In addition I discontinue my subscription to Morningstar Dividend newsletter last year. I have found that your content to be more straight forward and useable. My dividend portfolio that I put together at the end of 2009 is doing quite well.Thanks to your information.”

– John A. Michas, Barrington, IL

“...I wish I had known of dividend.com many years ago because I'm sure my portfolio would be much larger today...”

“I am retired and my wife and I live in Thailand. I've been a member for about 1-2 years and have used the recommendations in the Best Dividend Stocks as well as your less than 3.5 rated stocks in select situations. My goal at this age is not to seek home run stocks as I did in the past but to preserve capital and achieve the maximum income from well seasoned stock with great track records and increasing dividends. My portfolio of $2.5MM in stocks and bonds provides a steady and increasing income. I also do some buys of good stocks near ex-dividend and sell out of the money covered calls to increase the short term yield. I use all aspects of your site but focus mostly on the best and the ex-dividend search capability. The historical dividend information and the history of increases is the last thing I look before I make an investment. I have started an investment program for my young grandsons and annually put some money in their Coverdelland and UGMI accounts which I started 2+ years ago. The stocks are from your best stocks list and invested capital has increased 28%. My son has come into a substantial inheritance and has asked me to invest some of it for him. At first I was hesitant to do this but have decided to do it but only using your conservative approach. I wish I had known of dividend.com many years ago because I'm sure my portfolio would be much larger today.”

– John Williams, Thailand

“...I keep close tabs on the dividend ratings service it provides, and have not gone wrong with any of the stocks recommendations since...”

“Dividend.com has pointed me to some dividend stocks that have been winners in terms of growth and dividend yields. Namely, Duke Energy (DUK) and Intel (INTC). Both are a big and steady part of my current portfolio. I've gained more in dividends in the past two quarters than I have with a IRA Roth account I had (past tense...) with a local bank the past THREE years combined. I keep close tabs on the dividend ratings service it provides, and have not gone wrong with any of the stocks recommendations since.”

– M.S., Hawaii

“...Without it, I do not know how I would make intelligent decisions about what to buy and when...”

“I have used dividend.com to make investment decisions in all of my dividend stocks. It has been a terrific aid to me. Without it, I do not know how I would make intelligent decisions about what to buy and when.”

– Daniel Kramer, Scottsdale, AZ

“...You have made investing easy, do your homework, and it is a win, win...”

“It has made all the difference to my accounts, I use it as a guide, I have 3 accounts and one of them I started in Narch, 2011 and I am up 27% YTD. Using exclusively Dividend.Com best stocks. I have always had brokers buying the mutual funds year after year, with dismal results. You have made investing easy, do your homework, and it is a win, win. Thanks”

– Barbara Lewis, Florida

“...As a novice investor and recent retiree, I appreciate the clarity of the advice and easy to read lists...”

“My experience has been totally positive. As a novice investor and recent retiree, I appreciate the clarity of the advice and easy to read lists. Your recommendations have been right on for the most part, and I have happily discovered MLPs through your service. I have created a couple of portfolios for family in similar financial circumstances. Good, conservative advice and no BS. The Premium membership has been well worth the cost. Thank you and keep up the good work!”

– Frances Malone, North Carolina

“...I've never been more comfortable with the guidance I've received as I have with Dividend.com...”

“Since I've been a member we've beaten the market. More importantly, in 20 years of investing, I've never been more comfortable with the guidance I've received as I have with Dividend.com. Your perspective seems to come from a sound ethical place. Dividend.com is not just about good trades,but successful long term financil security. I've forwarded and discussed your newsletter with my sons, and have recommended they follow as well.”

– Dave Z, Doylestown, PA

“...Your daily newsletters are on target, and informative...”

“Dividend.com is the go to site for me. I do not invest in anything without researching Dividend.com. Your daily newsletters are on target, and informative. My portfolio is stable and shows excellent gains thanks to Dividend.com.”

– Charles Carstensen, Montrose, Colorado

“...I really appreciate the common sense displayed on this site...”

“I'm quite new to investing (only 2 years of active involvement) and I really appreciate the common sense displayed on this site. No unbelievable claims, just plain and simple advices for the long run. Love it :-)”

– Fred Mauroy, Belgium

“...I look forward to being a paid subscriber for a long time...”

“I depend almost exclusively on Paul's advice and recommendations on which Dividend Paying stock would be a safe investment for an older Senior Citizen who must be very conservative in investing his savings, and yet earn income to offset the pathetically low rates offered by bank CDs. Also, his frequent stories about his own life and Wall Street 'trader' experiences, family values, and observations about the politics, government, and comments abut hyped deals that talking heads and Internet gurus are promoting are always entertaining and informative. I look forward to being a paid subscriber for a long time. Thanks for the the opportunity to participate in this survey!”

– John V. McMillin, Williamsburg, Iowa

“...I have found Dividend.com to be a reliable and conservative tool...”

“Dividend.com is a tool I use to assist me in my investment strategy and stock purchases. The philosophy of dividend investing is something I have done for my whole investing career and it has been extremely successful. My strategy for over 30 years has been to invest in a combination of dividend stocks and investment grade municipal and corporate bonds. This strategy over the long term has consistently outperformed the market and especially so in the last decade. Selecting the right dividend stocks is a key component to the strategy and I have found Dividend.com to be a reliable and conservative tool. Very few investors and investment professionals have figured this successful strategy out. Stick with it and it will work. I also agree with virtually all of the publication's other "life lessons advice".”

– S Korkmas, Texas

“...I am enjoying the website and the Newsletter!...”

“I learned about your website by watching the Suze Orman show. I had belonged to an investment club, but in 2007 we sold our shares and the club ceased. Now, I am back in the business of purchasing stock. Currently, I am using Dividend.com to help make my selections. I am have a great time learning about the stock market. I also purchased the book "Be a Dividend Millionaire". I am enjoying the website and the Newsletter! I usually purchase stocks that have the highest DARS rating. Also, I use the stock watch feature.... God Bless....”

– S.O., Chicago

“...Dividend.com gives me the facts I need to separate companies with poor financial status from companies that are on solid ground...”

“The stock rating information presented on Dividend.com gives me the facts I need to separate companies with poor financial status from companies that are on solid ground with bright futures. Using their information I'm able to find the companies that offer good dividend returns while also promising a good potential appreciation in their stock value. In addition I'm also able to see which companies have been most consistent in making dividend payments.”

– L.D., Easton, PA

“...I consider Dividend.com essential for my investing success...”

“I consider Dividend.com essential for my investing success. I don't necessarily follow the recommended list (although I own several)but I use it a great deal for research and am on the site several times a week. I check for your ratings on individual stocks and their dividend history as well as which quarter they pay since I am retired and living on the dividends. It is essential I have a fairly equal spread between the quarters for that reason. Lastly, I check for Ex-dividend dates which are crucial for buying times, although obviously they are not the only parameter I use. Thank you so much for this service--I am hooked. It is difficult to describe the results since I'm not sure how long I've been a subscriber. However, I track my portfolio performance year over year and it has climbed steadily every year since the financial debacle and I have beat the S&P 500 though not necessarily by a huge amount. That is not my goal, my goal is to live on my income while growing the principal if possible and for the most part I have done that.”

– J.E., Cody, WY

“...Dividend.com does it better than any other service...”

“When it comes to researching companies to invest in, Dividend.com does it better than any other service. The professional opinions of dividend.com has caused my portfolio to grow by over 20% during the past 14 months, where as before my subscription I was averaging 8-12%. I've found the best dividend stocks portion of dividend.com to be my favorite. Thank you Paul.”

– James Dentici, Florida

“...I can't say enough good things about Dividend.com!...”

“I can't say enough good things about Dividend.com! At the end of 2010, my husband suggested I look into dividend stock investing after I voiced frustration over the low interest rates paid in my IRA account, as I was all in cash. He gave me a list of top performers and I decided to buy a few of these to get started. Not being a savvy trader, I decided to split my money. Half I would invest myself and half would be managed by my broker, Charles Schwab. Using the internet to learn more about which stocks paid dividends, etc.

I came across Dividend.com. I began with the free trial subscription to see if it was worth paying for the premium service, and after a very short time I was hooked. Subscribing to Dividend.com Premium made my research so much easier. I love the search tools that allow me to find good paying stocks, upcoming ex-dividend dates, 52-week highs and lows, and historical data. I appreciate the daily dividend report by email with tips and every day anecdotes giving me food for thought. I like the watch list where I can keep track of what's happening with my stocks and receive email alerts when something happens, i.e. announcement of the next dividend or ex-dividend date. With all of this info I developed my own investing strategy and have followed it over the past year. Proudly, the half of my portfolio I've managed grew 16.9% by the end of 2011! My husband, an avid, savvy, and very wise (he says very "lucky") trader, was a bit surprised at my success to say the least. Thank you, Dividend.com, for compiling the data, giving me useful tools to access that data, and encouraging me to give it a try and let my money work for me. In my case the results have exceeded my expectations and I'm optimistic for continued success.”

– Monica S., Gardnerville, NV

“...It was very, very educational...”

“I am retired and just started investing in stocks through Vanguard brokerage. I bought your book and read it. It was very, very educational. My stocks are bought using my Roth fund. I had invested in mutual funds until now. Made million in the Mutual Funds and now converting to Roth. I am 79 and may not see a million, but am enjoying trying. There is joy in learning until you leave this world. I thank you.”

– Enola Wade, Oakland, California

“...It assures me that my ETFs are being managed well....”

“I do not invest in specific stocks, but prefer ETFs. When choosing the ETF I liked the most, I looked at income producing ETFs and discovered many that just invested in dividend stocks. Dividend ETFs made sense to me, but which one? I chose by looking at Dividend.com's DARS list. If the ETF was loaded with 4 or 5 DARS star stocks, I assumed it was a good choice. Since then, I have continued to subscribe so I can review my ETFs with what drops on and off the Dividend.com recommended list. It assures me that my ETFs are being managed well.”

– Rick L, Los Angeles

“...The alert system keeps up on target with my senior note portfolio performance....”

“I am a professional in the business, a CFP. Most of clients are retired and I provide them with retirement income. 80% of there portfolio is fixed income, 15 to 20% dividend paying stocks. I use Dividend.com as my search engine in a couple different ways. First to identify and keep track of the recommended highest paying stocks. Second, the watch list system tell me when I should be aware of an event. (example: most of the fixed income investments are senior notes for my clients portfolio. One key element for using a senior note in my portfolio is whether that corporation pays a common stock dividend. The alert system keeps up on target with my senior note portfolio performance). I enjoy reading the articles Paul writes as at least once a week I learn something new or have an action item to perform for myself. Keep up the good work and I will continue to be a subscriber.”

– Richard Barca, Long Beach, CA

“...I never buy anything without first checking with you!....”

“I have a real comfort level with your evaluations of stock. I feel you are careful and happy to change your analysis if it is warranted. I never buy anything without first checking with you!”

– Delores B., North Carolina

“...it quickly became an integral part of my investing decisions...”

“Since subscribing to Dividend.com it quickly became an integral part of my investing decisions. I look at the Premium pages and tools before making any kind of move whether it be a buy or a sell.”

– Charles C., Colorado

“...your service has helped me make money this year without as much stress and more focus...”

“I have just renwed my subscription as your service has helped me make money this year without as much stress and more focus. When the market corrected at times during the year my Best Dividend stocks went down less and rebounded sooner than other companies that seemed to be "fairweather" stocks (with nice gains that seemed to deflate in value and have not rebounded). Your top dividend picks make it feel more like investing in great companies rather that just the latest "Name" in the market...My portfolio has shifted more in line withy your top picks with every purchase and am very happy with my less stressful average 20% plus returns for the year. Keep up the good work!”

– Don D., New Mexico
