Dividends hold the key to steadily building wealth over time. In good markets and bad, dividends can be spent to support income needs or reinvested to build a bigger portfolio. Most investors are aware that the historical return of the stock market is about 10% annually; what they don't know is that dividends account for about half of that return! Using stories and real life examples, "All About Dividend Investing" shows why dividend paying stocks make more sense now than ever before, and outlines a time-proven process for creating and maintaining a dividend based portfolio.
