An Index-Beating Strategy For Fearless Dividend Investors

 rainbowTwenty-five years ago, Michael O’Higgins began to write a book.

The Miami-based money manager wanted to share something simple: an investment strategy that he had used since 1978. The strategy took just 15 minutes a year.

But Mr. O’Higgins said it would beat the market.

He completed the book in 1990. Titled Beating the Dow, it began to fly off bookshelves.

Read to find out whether his strategy has stood the test of time in my article.

Five Big Perks To Living And Working in the U.S.A.


Many say that America is no longer the land of opportunity. 

Times have changed. Years ago, the new world offered what old Europe didn’t. Land cost less.  People could make more money.  Feeding and raising a family was supposed to be easier.

Much has changed since boatloads of starry-eyed immigrants followed the first settlers.

But one fact remains.  There are still plenty of financial perks to living in the USA.

What International Teachers And Administrators Need To Know About Investing



Robert Landau knows a thing or two about teaching.

He has worked overseas for four decades. 

He has spent the past 25 years working as a school superintendent in Switzerland, Indonesia, the Czech Republic, China, Cambodia, and Singapore.

But there’s one thing that bugs him.  A lot. 

“Many schools allow investment ‘salesmen’ through their doors. But they rarely research the advisors, their firms or the products they sell.”

Are Index Fund Investors Simply Smarter?


We hear a lot about the low costs of index funds. 

Sure, they outperform most actively managed funds.  As a result, many people assume that those who buy index funds are simply smarter.  But investors’ intelligence can be measured in other ways.  Those that buy high and sell low are fools.  And it appears that more investors in actively managed funds conduct such silly behaviour, compared to their counterparts in index funds.
