Stocks, Investing and Dividend Websites

Updated on October 29, 2014

Interested in getting out of mutual funds?

Mutual funds often have such high fees that it can be hard to actually make money in down-markets. You should consider dividend stock investing because the fees are minimal and it's quite a low-risk strategy. There are plenty of sites where you can do basic stock research such as stock price, and dividend rate but this site will focus exclusively on dividends and dividend stocks. There are so many dividend stock investing websites, but I've included only my favorites on this one so you won't waste your time.

My experience with dividend stock investing

A few years ago, I reached a place where I had saved up about $20 000 that I was interested in investing in the stock market. I did extensive research for about a year, looking at the various options. Eventually, I settled on dividend stock investing because it seemed not so complicated, not so risky and could offer good returns if done for the long term. I started investing about 2 years ago, and have a steady stream of dividends coming in every month, about $200 or so. I keep investing more money that I make from my job, as well as the dividends. I hope to grow this monthly income to over $1000/month.

You're a newbie and want to know the basics? Well, dividends are simply earnings that a company pays out to its shareholders. Most companies pay 4 times/year, at a set amount/share. The only fees for this investing strategy are the commission that you pay to buy the stock (from $3-$20) and the same fee when you sell the stock. If you sign up with an online discount broker such as Sogotrade, your fees will be minimal.

As with any investing, do your research first and act second. This site is a good place to start!

      Nice lens. I'm a big fan of dividend investing, and mention it on my own lens about generating passive income.

      This is a great article. You may want to add a section on CEFs that pay monthly dividends.

      @aesta1: Yeah, I've been investing in dividend stocks for a few years now. I pay 15% tax on them, like everyone else. I'm not really sure what are the negatives with regard to taxes? Other income is the same tax situation, or worse.

      Have you had some experience in investing in dividend stocks? Maybe you can share with us your personal experience. Others do not want dividends because of its tax implications. But I like it especially this year.

      Nice...perhaps a bit of formatting though with a little pictures? But I definitely read through it so it wasn't boring at all. Good work
