Right now, you're probably hearing a lot about financial inequality in America. It's become a popular campaign issue and a nonstop source of debate in blogs and media outlets.
What you don't hear so much about and what is still devastating to regular folks – retirement savers, workers, retail investors, small business owners, etc. – is information inequality.
Wall Street, hedge funds, accredited investors, and D.C. insiders have radically different actionable information than the average retailer investor.
They get reports from firms that cost tens of thousands of dollars, they have analysts running Bloomberg terminals (at a cost of around $23,000 a year), and have advanced algorithms that can tell them when to buy and when to sell – hundreds of times per second.
Meanwhile, most investors get… traditional media outlets. The media seems more interested in generating page clicks than providing real, actionable information – financial journalism – that can help their readers make money.
This week, I found perhaps the most stunning example of bad financial journalism and how it can actually cost you money if you follow its advice.
But I also had a chance to put my new favorite source of information – a bona fide moneymaking tool – into practice.
And I have to say, this tool just helped me whittle down a list of 53 dividend stocks down to a list of seven stocks that are sitting right in the center of the "Buy Zone."
Let me show you what happened… and then I'll show you how you can do this for yourself and learn instantly when to buy and when to sell.
