Dividend Yield

About the Author Dividend Yield

I am Tom Roberts. I am 36 years old and a normal guy. I am not rich, don’t drive a fancy car and I don’t have expensive tastes. I only have a passion for dividend stocks and my private wealth optimization. I don’t work for other people and don’t give any advice on buying or selling stocks. Since I started investing, I lost money, but I earned much more over a long period of time. Dividends protected my wealth and dividend growth lifted me up to new dimensions. As of today, my net worth is four-times higher after I gave up my permanent occupation. I do not search other jobs anymore; I live from dividend payments and have achieved my first goal of financial independence. My current annualized dividend income is in the five-figure region and my portfolio dividend yield is around three percent. I plan to double my investments every five to ten years. This represents a yearly return (dividends included) of 7-15 percent. Over the most recent 13 years, I realized such a return rate. Summarized, I would be happy to die with a balance in the double-digit millions, but this is a long and hard path

4 Dividend Income Stocks For Long-Term Orientated Investors


Conservative investors should be looking for predictability and stability above all else.

While you should also be mindful of valuation and try not to purchase income at overzealous market pricing, if the payout/yield at which you are purchasing is acceptable and sustainable, that should be a priority as well.

Below are four stock ideas for conservative investors with a long investment horizon. I’m a big believer in long-term value creation. Only over a long period of time, companies can unlock values, grow and finally create the maximun of return for investors and stakeholders.
