From the Inside Flap:

Dividends are back! Yet in reality, they never really went away. In fact, if you had invested in leading dividend-yielding stocks ten, twenty, or even thirty years ago, chances are you would have made more money than if you had invested solely in leading stocks found in the S&P 500 index.

Investing in stocks that pay dividends on a consistent basis, either directly or through a fund, has proven to be one of the safest and smartest ways to build an investment portfolio. But to make the most of dividend-yielding stocks, you need the detailed information that only Mergent—the preferred source for global business and financial information—can provide.

In Beating the S&P with Dividends, Peter O'Shea and Jonathan Worrall reveal the strategies and techniques that Mergent professionals use to continually uncover these high-return/low-risk stocks, and explain how you can implement them in virtually any portfolio. Explaining how to invest in high-quality stocks that not only provide outstanding dividend performance, but also benefit from lower tax rates on dividends, this comprehensive resource is ideal for any independent investor looking to make positive cash flow an important part of their investment strategy.

Filled with in-depth insight and practical advice, Beating the S&P with Dividends will show you how to:

  • Analyze and select the best dividend-yielding stocks available
  • Assemble a portfolio of top-performingdividend-yielding stocks
  • Reap the rewards of REIT dividends
  • Allocate your portfolio for the greatest tax efficiency
  • Implement "dividend achiever" strategies and techniques through real-world cases and examples

In today's financial environment, investing in dividend-yielding stocks has never looked so good. These stocks generate regular cash returns that can be withdrawn or reinvested; bring a relatively high rate of return at a lower risk than most other types of financial vehicles; and now you even have governmental help in the form of reduced taxes on dividends. No matter what your investment objectives or risk outlook, Beating the S&P with Dividends will help boost the performance of your portfolio.
