Ian Duncan MacDonald's
Latest Investment Book
628 U.S. Companies Pay Dividends of 6% or More!
Ian Duncan MacDonald's last investment book "Income and Wealth from Self-Directed Investing" introduced investors to a formula for investment success: "Build your portfolio with the 20 stocks of financially strong companies from diversified industries paying a dividend of 6% or greater". Not only does such a portfolio deliver an annual dividend income worth 6% or more of your portfolio but you will see the total value of your portfolio grow by several multiples over the years. The 2008 and 2020 recessions have confirmed that dividends from strong companies get paid even during recessions and pandemics In "Safer Better Dividend Investing" Ian not only shows investors how to find the best 20 stocks for their portfolio but he lists all 628 U.S. common stocks that were paying a dividend of 6% or more in August of 2020. To make it easy for you to make your selection from the 628 he has scored the strength and potential of each stock. The 628 listings were then sorted four ways: (1) alphabetically, (2) by descending score, (3) by descending share price (4) by descending dividend percentage. To insure that you have the most up-to-date score before ordering a stock, everyone who buys this book can request a FREE copy of Ian's STOCK SCORING SOFTWARE. PLUS Over the last year, Ian has replied to hundreds of questions from those seeking answers to the questions they have about investing. In the book Ian answers 128 questions like the following: How does the Great Depression 1929 compare to the 2020 recession? Why do so many investors not trust investment advisors? Do you see Tesla as an overpriced stock? Is it too late to start investing at 35? Which would be better, to work in a good company or to start your own business? What are some lies stockbrokers tell themselves?
Many investors are not sure how to identify a financially strong company. Ian explains in easy, to understand language, the importance of the eight key information items he used when he built his stock scoring software. You can see exactly how the scores are calculated. The eight information items are : (1) A stock's current price.
(2) A stock's historical prices.
(3) A stock's current "book" value.
(4) How analysts rate the stock.
(5) A stock's dividend yield percent.
(6) A stocks operating margin.
(7) A stocks daily volume of shares traded.
(8) A stock’s price-too-earnings ratio. PLUS In addition to the 628 U.S. companies traded on the NYSE and the NASDAQ, Ian also provides a list of all 199 high dividend common stocks traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange. They are sorted the same 4 ways as the US data. The 4 lists not only display the current score but for trending purposes last year's score as well.

INCOME AND WEALTH
Income and Wealth from Self-Directed Investing was Ian's first investment book. He wrote it after a friend, an eighty-year-old widow, asked him if it was normal to be losing $100,000 a year in her portfolio. She knew Ian had a passion for investing. She feared outliving her savings. Ian looked at her portfolio. He could not believe what he was seeing. Her investment advisor was making more trades in a month than Ian would make in 10 years. The fees for his fees and trades were adding up to almost $20,000 a year. Mutual funds, preferred shares and loan notes had been loaded into the portfolio. Such investments had almost zero chance for capital gain. The widow believed her small monthly income from was coming from dividends. She was surprised when Ian pointed out that her investment advisor was liquidating a portion of her million dollar portfolio each month to provide her with the $3,500 she was living on. Over several months and hundreds of emails, Ian showed the widow how to be a successful self-directed investor. Having learned how to confidently choose good dividend stocks for her portfolio, she terminated the services of her investment advisor and immediately saved herself $20,000 a year. Her monthly dividends doubled her income and she was well on her way to recovering much of the $300,000 lost while the investment advisor had control of her portfolio. The widow pushed Ian to write a book that would teach inexperienced investors like herself, how to build and manage a profitable stock portfolio. He wrote that book for her, for his children and for the many people all around the world who have purchased the book. Several American investors who bought the book asked why there were no charts identifying outstanding dividend stocks traded on the the New York Stock Exchange and the NASDAQ. To correct this deficiency he wrote "SAFER BETTER DIVIDEND INVESTING".

"I was trying to find an adviser who could review my portfolio and provide self guidance. I found that most advisers are either Asset Under Management, Brokers, Insurance or Annuity salesmen. They either charge a big fee to manage or upfront fee to purchase an insurance or annuity policy. I found a few people online who really want to educate people. Here are a few I follow: Paul Merriman, Chris Pedersen, Michael Kitces, Roger Uanow and now Ian MacDonald!"...RON
