Kelly Green, senior editor at Mauldin Economics, has been a researcher for as long as she can remember. She was always fascinated with taking things apart and asking hundreds of questions, whether it was a car or a complex math equation. Ms. Green graduated at just 20 years old with a bachelor's degree in mathematical economics. A short time later, she passed her Series 7 and 66 exams, sponsored by one of the largest financial services companies in the world. Within months of starting her promising career, however, Kelly realized she wasn't suited to preparing information packets. She longed for analysis work. Kelly turned to a career researching the lucrative field of high-yielding equities. The numbers and the research didn't lie. She fell in love with exploring the ins and outs of income-investing opportunities and sell-side options trades. Over the next few years, Kelly would work as co-editor of several income-focused newsletters, chief researcher, and portfolio analyst. She even wrote an educational series for investors covering topics ranging from making first trades to how to trade options.
Famed investor Warren Buffett coined one of my favorite quotes: “Price is what you pay, value is what you get.” Buffet was referring to buying stocks, but we all apply this simple advice to everyday life choices. Many consumers are now turning to private-label merchandise to save money, and Target Corp. (TGT) is a key beneficiary, explains Kelly Green, editor of Dividend Digest.
Showing my readers how to use dividends to build wealth and unlock streams of income is why I write my letter. When I recommend a stock for its dividend, I always try to ensure that I’m not overpaying. I don’t, however, try to time the market. But sometimes a dividend stock will get hit with a big price move. And if you find a good dividend stock that’s on sale, it can really boost your yield, like with Sinclair Broadcasting (SBGI), explains Kelly Green, editor of Dividend Digest.
The reason we invest boils down to two motives: Building wealth for the future and generating income right now. Dividend stocks are the way to reach both goals! The trick is to invest for tomorrow and today at every stage of your life, writes Kelly Green, editor of Dividend Digest.
I went into the bank a few days ago and was talking to the teller about putting my nephews as named beneficiaries on my accounts. That led to a discussion about high-yield savings accounts. But I think they pale in comparison to dividend stocks like Enterprise Products Partners (EPD), says Kelly Green, editor of Dividend Digest.
