Chapter 8 – Additional Resources

At this point, you’ve learned all the basics you need to start investing in dividend paying stocks.

I’ve given you the exact steps to use to get started.  Essentially, these are the same steps I have come to use over the years.  I say “essentially,” because my path was not so simple and direct.  And that is because I didn’t have a book like this to get started.

But you now have the same basic system I would use to get started today.

With that said, we covered a lot of resources in the book.  So this section lists them all for you as a handy reference.  And there are some additional resources listed as well.

NOTE that print book readers can access and the live links at

Stocks That Have Increased Their Dividends For 25 Years Or More – Dividend Aristocrats

Known as the Dividend Aristocrats, this is a list of S&P 500 companies that have increased dividends every year for the last 25 consecutive years. This can be a good place to start looking for good dividend paying stocks.

Stocks That Pay MONTHLY Dividends

Here’s a list of over 700 stocks that pay monthly dividends.  Monthly dividends really start feeling like paychecks.

Dividend History

Shows the history of dividend payments that have been made for a stock.  The history can go back ten years and more.  Like most sites, just enter the stock symbol at the top and click search.  This is an excellent site and I use it frequently.

Dividend Growth Rate List

The best list I have found for pre-calculated dividend growth rates.  It’s a little tricky to use but worth it.  After going to the site at, click in the Info/Tools/Forms section, which will take you to the Drip Investing Resource Center page.  Then click on the link and download the most recent spreadsheet.  This spreadsheet will have pre-calculated the dividend growth rates of more than 750 dividend paying stocks – all shown in one list under the CCC tab (which stands for Champions, Contenders and Challengers).

Free Stock Information and Charts

Very useful to research a specific stock.  Just enter the stock symbol at the top of the screen and click the Search Finance button.  You will find a wealth of information, including the dividend amount and yield.  The site also has good charts of the historical stock prices.  You can also get to this site by going to and then clicking the Finance tab.

The Oxford Income Letter

Excellent paid subscription newsletter with monthly dividend stock recommendations.

Their Chief Income Strategist is Marc Lichtenfeld, and, as they say, he offers cutting edge insight every month on how to create an unbeatable income portfolio.  He has three portfolios which are…

The Retirement Catch-Up/High Yield Portfolio – with emphasis on current high yields.
The Instant Income Portfolio – with emphasis on income for today.
The Compound Income Portfolio Dividend – emphasizing reinvestment for tomorrow.

As of this writing, I subscribe to this newsletter and the subscription was $49 for a year.  And they offer a 90-day no-risk trial subscription.

The Daily Paycheck

Excellent paid subscription newsletter that truly embodies the paychecks and raises concept of dividend stocks.  As they say, each monthly issue is loaded with fresh tips to help you reach the goal of receiving a fat dividend check for every day of the month.  Started by Amy Calistri and now run by Genia Turanova, the new Chief Investment Strategist, it has three portfolios.  They are…

High-Yield Opportunities Portfolio – to help maximize your overall portfolio’s income.
Fast Dividend Growers Portfolio – to help maximize your overall portfolio’s income growth.
Steady Income Generators Portfolio – to help to minimize your portfolio’s overall risk, while providing a dependable stream of income.

As of this writing, I subscribe to this newsletter and the subscription was $79 for two years, so less than $40 per year.  And they offer a 90-day no-risk trial subscription.

Tracking Your Stop Losses

Very useful if you have many different stock positions and want to use sophisticated stop loss tracking.  I subscribe to it, but it is a paid for subscription service.  And it’s not necessary for beginners with just a few stock positions.  You can use your discount brokers free alert system instead.

List Of Different Business Sectors

Great list of the various business sectors, and subsectors, you can invest in.  This is a good reference to help you keep your portfolio diversified.

DRIP Investing (Dividend Reinvestment Programs)

Note: You can also reinvest through your online broker – see list of online brokers.  Or through many company’s websites in the investor relations tab.

An Exchange Traded Fund that you can invest in that tracks the Dividend Aristocrats index. This allows you to make one investment in all of the stocks that have raised their dividends for 25 consecutive years.  That’s pretty impressive performance!
