5 Best Long-Term Dividend Stocks to Buy Now

Monday’s 2% plunge in stocks reminded investors that choppy waters are ahead.

But owning the best dividend stocks can offer stability when things get bumpy.

In 2013, JPMorgan Asset Management compared the performance of companies initiating and growing their payouts between 1972 and 2012 to publicly traded companies that didn't pay a dividend over the same stretch.

Trade SBUX, PZZA, and MO This Week for Big Pre-Election Profits

Recently, I shared more than 10 low-risk, high-probability trades for cashing in on downside market volatility between now and November and even beyond. Almost all those trades target a double – or better – and none of them risk more than a few cents per share.

But it's easy to capture profits on "upside" volatility, too. To do that, I'm going to share one kind of trade to make on three different stocks. It's just as easy and low-risk as my other trades, but these guys all have a decidedly bullish attitude.

And they're short-term, too. You don't want to wait long to get into these.

Now, everyone knows I'm a rules-based trader, so of course I fed these through my proprietary Money Calendar.

I sure liked what I saw – one of these trades even paid off 100% of the time over the past 10 years.

3 High-Yield Dividend Stocks to Protect Your Money No Matter What Happens Next

Investors know adding high-yield dividend stocks to their portfolio is a great way to keep cash rolling in when the markets are volatile.

The problem is that the COVID-19 pandemic has hammered so many industries that finding companies with sustained dividends is difficult. A lot of formerly safe income sectors like banks, chemicals, REITs and oil and gas MLP's face the potential for dividend cuts if we get a second wave of the coronavirus.

But there is one sector of the economy that should hold up even if we see further economic damage.

In fact, these companies are likely to see an increase in business if we see financial stress reappear anytime soon.

And that's helping them turn into cash machines even as markets move up and down...

How to Buy More Stock Without Spending More Money

Many investors have convinced themselves the bull market is over. They'll start the year by selling and heading to the sidelines, using even the slightest market drop to justify their actions.

I can't think of a worse mistake.

Really, there are all kinds of ways to hedge volatility these days. No investor need fear a bear market – let alone suffer the ravages of getting financially mauled.

You can run flat or down markets to your advantage, and you can use the tactics I've covered for you here and in my Total Wealth research service.

Today, I want to introduce a new wrinkle. I want to show you how to buy more stocks without spending more money.

It's a simple, easy-to-use tactic that's ideally suited for current market conditions – and best of all, one that could lead to profits of 2,426% or more.

As always, I've got a few examples and stocks that can help you put what you learn today into action immediately. So let's get started...

Why I Had to Lose Three Jobs to Finally Get Rich

My first "real job" was an analyst at a bank… and I remember the day I got fired like it was yesterday.

It was so boring I would literally fall asleep at my desk in the middle of the day. So they decided to give my job to someone else.

My second "real job" wasn't any better. I sat in a cubicle looking at endless spreadsheets all day for CVS-Caremark, where my boss was some corporate stuffed shirt, always in my face.

I was absolutely hating life – it got so bad I could barely sleep at night.

Not that I had much to get up for every day; my pay was peanuts, too. My salary was only $45,000 a year – around $500 a week after taxes. It was barely enough to afford a decent car, let alone an apartment in Chicago.

So I had to move back in with my parents just to make ends meet. It was so embarrassing, but what else could I do? It was right after 9/11; there was a recession on, good jobs were scarce, and I needed the money.

So I went to work every day, and did my best to stay awake. But I hated every minute of it.

Time for another change. I didn't know it at the time, but this one would be big – really big.

It didn't quite start out that way, but it opened up the door to incredible, life-changing wealth (and more fun than ought to be legal)… Full Story

The Dow Jones Today Is Tilted Up on Trade Deal Optimism

The Dow Jones today is rising with investors surprisingly optimistic about a possible trade deal between the United States and China.

I say "surprisingly" because President Trump has taken multiple swipes at China, and the U.S. is penalizing Chinese oil shipment firms.

JPMorgan Chase (NYSE: JPM) CEO Jamie Dimon also said Wednesday he doesn't expect a deal before the 2020 election.
