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

Today I like to show you what the other super investors like George Soros, David Tepper, Bill Ackman, Bruce Berkowitz or others bought during the latest quarter. Each of the attached stocks were bought at least four times by one of the 60+ superinvestors.
It’s a clear signal. They put money into the oil services industry. Drilling and exploration companies- Those are suffering mostly from the low oil price. Is it an anti-cyclic bet? What do you think; please share your thoughts by leaving a small comment.
