Praise for Intelligent Investing

I’ve long believed that investors shouldn’t rely on uncertain capital gains to live on during retirement. Steve Booren’s Intelligent Investing reminds us that a great way to work toward a prosperous retirement is with a portfolio of dividend stocks that seek to stay ahead of inflation with a goal of providing steadily growing income over time.

Intelligent Investing is a straightforward guide to getting ready for and thriving in retirement. Like the title suggests, the strategy detailed in the book is a smart way to prepare for your financial future. In fact, I’d say it’s the most intelligent way.

Popular Questions about Intelligent Investing

Dividends are a method for companies to share profits with their investors, typically in the form of cold hard cash.

While we can’t name specific companies here (see the book for more info!) we can say that we like long-term, consistent dividend payers that are “every” companies: Companies that sell their products every-where, every-day, to every-one.

Dividends are special for a variety of reasons: favorable tax treatments, consistent income, and most importantly, they are detached from the daily fluctuation in prices typically associated with investing in the stock market.

Inflation is the headwind we all face as we age. It is the increasing cost of goods and services as time goes on. Think about it this way: $10,000 bought a whole lot more in 1980 than it does today. If your income doesn’t increase during retirement, you will eventually feel the squeeze of inflation.
