Good investing books give ideas on what to do or how to do it better. Great books do both. Todd Wenning wrote a great book.
Readers of "Keeping Your Dividend Edge" will learn about the importance of dividends for real long run returns. Better still, Todd provides a clear roadmap on how to identify quality dividend stocks and how to avoid common dividend traps.
The two best words in the English language are "For example" one of the best features of Todd's book is that he includes case study examples for key concepts. For example, the chapter on the critical topic of "Avoiding Dividend Cuts" shows three different types of dividend cuts as illustrated by case studies on Exelon (stocks are not bonds), Pfizer (Institutional Imperative), and Tesco (Bad Investment Decisions). Not only does Todd provide real world case studies, he documents lessons learned so that individual investors can apply their own pattern recognition to avoid getting zapped by a dividend cut.
The book has recurring themes around patience and quality, these make for an excellent combination with dividend investing. What is most helpful to investors in this work is when Todd explores the intersection of dividends and durable competitive advantage. For any investor, finding a company with a 2-4% current yield is perhaps fine, but things get much more interesting when the company can safely grow its dividend payouts to shareholders over decades. This book shows readers how to build their own analytical toolbox to identify these quality shares that reward shareholders and are well positioned to grow dividends over decades.
For as much hubbub as there is about dividends in investing, there are relatively few books on the topic. Todd Wenning's effort on the pursuit of high quality dividends makes a welcome addition to the published works in this field.
I would consider myself more of an active trader, using technicals along with quantified data to make investing decisions. Clearly a book on the values of long-term investing and dividends isn't what I'd call my sweet spot, but I LOVED this book. Todd continues what he has been teaching for years and puts it all in one place.
The quiet value that dividends can produce over time is stunning and Todd lays the ground work to how each of us can be successful despite many of the challenges out there. Taking a cue from the greats like Buffett and Graham, Todd puts his own spin on dividend investing.
Lastly, this isn't a book that goes on and on. Todd hits us with the good stuff and that is it. So many investing books are hundreds of pages and seem to start off strong, then bore us to death. This book is just the right size and nearly every page is full of knowledge you can takeaway immediately.
Well done, Todd. Thanks for a great read!
People fret about retirement and market swoons and trade in and out of the market and produce inferior returns. Keeping Your Dividend Edge will show you why trading doesn't work for most of us and why buying and holding strong dividend paying stocks work while teaching us how to search for and identify those stocks for ourselves.
If you want to success as a long term investor, you need to read this book.
