Don’t Let Panic Lose You Money

Don’t Let Panic Lose You Money

Last week, I told my premium subscribers to get out of a stock that had been panic-sold two months earlier. By understanding exactly what was going on, we avoided the panic-triggered losses and sold at a price 130% above the selloff low. So, let’s talk about how not to be an emotion-driven, lose-your-money, panic-selling investor… […]

Is This The Market Top?

Is This The Market Top?

My Market Rover proprietary indicator gives me daily updates on what the market is doing. Well…the indicator gave me a “sell” signal about a week ago.

The Best Income Investment for the Next Market Crash

The Best Income Investment for the Next Market Crash

Dear Investor, It’s different this time, truly. I am speaking, of course, of the 2020 stock market crash. One effect of the pandemic-triggered market drop was large declines for every type of high-yield asset. Declines hit every income category, no matter the level of risk or safety. That was a one-time occurrence, and during the […]

Dear Investor, When the coronavirus pandemic triggered a stock market crash in the first quarter of 2020, I added, for the first time, individual preferred stocks to the Dividend Hunter recommendations list.  It has now been more than a year since that first recommendation, and I am convinced more than ever that preferred stock investments, […]

The Bear Market is Already Here – but Not for Dividend Investors

Dear Investor, While the broad stock market indices remain at near-record levels, there are sectors of the market that have dropped into correction or even bear market territory over recent months.
