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.”
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.”
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.”
