An easy way to find dividend-paying stocks...using a Stock Screener

Dividends are paid from the company's net income (total income less total expenses) so you want to be sure to find out what the company's net income is and how strong the company is financially so that your dividend is secure now and in the foreseeable future.

Checking the Company's Financial Data so your dividends are secure

This is a CRITICAL ratio that you must understand and be able to calculate so you can be sure that your dividend is secure and has room to grow as well. Here I show you how to find the right numbers and to calculate the Dividend-Payout-Ratio.

Good, reliable dividend payers (that also grow their dividends) are not difficult to track. In this screencast lesson I take you to a site that can show you the past track record of dividend payers to give you a reliable barometer of future potential dividend payouts. Here I visit Nasdaq but other sources for dividend history are in the resource report in Lesson 2.

Checking the Company's Dividend History

He has been teaching nationally about investing, tax and business start-up issues since 1983...over 2,500 seminars and workshops!

He calls himself a "raving capitalist" because he believes that everyone should adopt the 2-pronged approach to wealth-building and personal prosperity. The first prong is "passive wealth-building" which is to deploy investing and speculative strategies through stocks, ETFs, options and other vehicles.

The 2nd prong is "active wealth-building"...have a home business (part-time or full-time" to enact business strategies to build wealth in your spare time. A home business is a great way to be diversified (apart from your job) and it has powerful benefits (build wealth, save on taxes, etc).

Having this holistic approach means optimizing your prosperity and building long-term financial security for you and your loved ones!
