WHY THE BOOKS WERE WRITTEN
After 50 years of helping banks, insurance companies and suppliers to avoid business losses, Ian MacDonald could see that investing in the shares of companies was just another form of commercial risk.
Using the same commercial risk scoring strategies, he built a stock scoring system for himself that would select financially strong companies that would give him a reliable, high dividends income.
He knew that dividends were derived from profits and that profits were the result of the wise revenue and expense decisions made by a company''s executives. From profits, dividends are paid. To quickly find financially strong companies he looked for those paying dividends over many years.
Many of these financially strong companies increased their dividend payouts evert year, even during the 2008 and 2020 market crashes, when all share prices had dropped by as much as 50%. His generous dividend income has never stopped growing and his portfolio has grown by many multiples larger.
Ian ceased to worry about future market crashes and recessions.
When his friends asked for help, he showed them how to invest the same way he had. Even an 80-year-old widow quickly learned how to build a strong portfolio and recover the $300,000 that her investment advisor had lost.
Her fears of outliving her savings vanished. She pushed Ian to write his investment books to help investors invest safely.
