Just got promotion mailing for their new dividend investing portfolio and newsletter. $199/year ($149 intro deal).
"Rising dividend stocks outperform every other stock"
"newsletter focuses exclusively on stocks that have a history of raising their dividends".
"compelling div story + potential for impressive growth".

shows example of Coke. If bought 1 share at IPO price of $40 in 1919, it would be worth $322,421 now. But if you had invested every dividend, it would be worht $9.3million

(Wow, hard to believe)

They will keep a portfolio of 24 stocks.
Build balanced portfolio of diversified industries.
identifying companies with the financial strength to pay and increase divs.
Metrics they watch:
- growing div payment rates
- positive free cash flow
- improving trends in sales and earnings.
- attractive valuations and strong balance sheet.

Sounds vaguely familiar.
