From the Back Cover:

The powerful insider guidance you need to make dividend stocks a lucrative component of your portfolio

Reflecting their importance, dividends have historically accounted for more than 40 percent of the S&P 500 index's total return. Dividend stocks offer exceptional stability combined with long-term capital growth potential in every economic and market environment. For decades, dollar-smart investors have found them to be the ideal hedge against inflation and eroding earnings power. Highly regarded by the wealthiest, most knowledgeable investors, dividend stocks offer a solid financial opportunity once you understand the intricacies and pitfalls of investing in them.

The Standard & Poor's Guide to Building Wealth with Dividend Stocks provides you with a clear, step-by-step program for making dividend stocks the cornerstone of your portfolio. Here in a single definitive volume you will find:

  • Specific financial and operational details you should look for when deciding on the best dividend stocks for you
  • Capsule descriptions of seven stocks that recorded dividend growth of at least 250 percent from 1995 through 2005
  • Listing of nearly 100 companies with dividend reinvestment plans (DRIPs), along with websites, details, and Standard & Poor's rankings where available
Written in a clear, straightforward style by Joseph R. Tigue, one of the world's leading authorities on dividend investing strategies, The Standard & Poor's Guide to Building Wealth with Dividend Stocks offers proven, rock-solid guidance on making dividend stocks a cornerstone of your long-term investment strategy.

A long-accepted rule of thumb on Wall Street, as well as among investors of every size and approach, is that solid, dependable companies reward their investors with cash dividends. Dividend-paying companies offer tangible, bottom-line proof that they are here to stay, and not dependent on the whims of a volatile stock market. In addition, veteran investors have learned through experience that dividends are an ideal hedge against inflation and eroding earnings power.

Is it any wonder that, over the past century-plus, the majority of multimillion dollar stock portfolios have been built around dividend paying stocks?

The Standard & Poor's Guide to Building Wealth with Dividend Stocks is an authoritative, single-source guide to adopting dividend investing strategies that will pay you with substantial, lifelong rewards. Written by dividend investing authority Joseph R. Tigue and built upon the knowledge and resources of the investing experts at Standard & Poor's, the world's leading provider of investment facts and information, this ready-to-implement investment tool features:

  • Techniques for uncovering companies that couple higher-than-average dividends with the ability to continue paying those dividends
  • Typical income-paying stock classes, including utilities, financials, Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), preferred stocks, and more
  • Strategies for compounding and accelerating your equity growth through partial or full dividend reinvestment
  • Convenient methods for buying a diversified portfolio of dividend stocks through mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs)
  • Detailed strategies for successful dividend investing, including dollar-cost averaging and relative dividend yield

Regular dividend payments require that companies have consistent cash flow, which indicate strength. In an investing world that often seems heavy on earnings restatements and light on actual substance, dividends are the best proof of a company's stability and long-term viability. The Standard & Poor's Guide to Building Wealth with Dividend Stocks is your introduction to the profitable world of dividend investing, telling you what to look for and what to avoid when constructing a dividend-paying portfolio that is as reliable as it is profitable.
