  • Is Clicks' dividend safe? The answer lies in three simple charts
  • The only way to live a worry-free retirement these days is to have steady streams of income coming in, month after month. Without income you can count on, you're dependent on your retirement annuity to get by. And that's not a spot you want to be in… That's why, part of my job as Real Wealth editor, is to find investments that consistently pay investors dividends - as well as - investmen... ››› more

  • The ‘Ultimate Paycheque' for a rich retirement
  • Imagine investing R100,000 in a company and receiving over R600,000 in dividends alone… Or investing the same amount and getting back nearly R200,000 just in dividends… Now that's serious income that could guarantee a comfortable retirement. Now imagine owning six of these shares right now… I'd call that the ‘Ultimate Paycheque' retirement. And as I said, I've identified si... ››› more

  • Don't be fooled by this stocks' 57% dividend yield
  • Right now, there's one JSE listed company who has a dividend yield of 57%. That's unheard of in JSE listed companies. But it's true. In fact, it could be one of, if not the highest dividend yield I've ever come across from a JSE listed company. Just consider this… The JSE All Share's dividend yield is just over 3%. This means, the company has a yield nearly 20x higher than the av... ››› more

  • A two-minute formula every ‘dividend investor' must know
  • It's no secret that if you are investing for your retirement, you want to have income producing stocks in your portfolio. And by income producing, we mean shares that pay consistently high dividends. But looking at the dividend yield alone, may show x but it could mean y…. Instead I want to show you a far more RELIABLE way to calculate the real dividend yield, so that you can invest... ››› more

  • An investment opportunity contrarian investors dream about
  • You may or may not have heard of Jim Rogers, but he's one of the world's most successful investors. In the 1970s, Jim Rogers' Quantum Fund delivered a 4,000%-plus return to investors, while the S&P 500 gained just 42%. This incredible success early in his career enabled Rogers to retire at the age of 37! But this isn't the reason why I bring up Jim Rogers today. It all has to do w... ››› more

  • How to identify a company with sustainable dividend pay-outs
  • Generating consistent income is a wonderful way to grow your wealth. And one of the best ways to make consistent income is with dividends. However, finding the right companies that can consistently pay you dividends every year isn't all that easy. Unfortunately, you'll get companies that pay-out most of their profits in dividends. Eventually, they won't be able to sustain this. This happen... ››› more

  • Three common mistakes that can cost your retirement a fortune
  • I'm only 28 but I'm not like most under 30s… I constantly think about my future retirement nest egg. And its most likely because I've worked in the investment industry for eight years and surrounded by a lot older colleagues. I've also been lucky enough to attend a lot of our global investor conferences where I got to chat to people a lot older than me… People either preparing to retir... ››› more

  • A “Retirement Plan B” you can't ignore!
  • Let me ask you a serious question… How many of you believe you have enough money to last your retirement? Well when you consider that over 50% of South Africans aren't confident they will be able to draw an income in retirement, I'm going to assume not many of you. You see, a standard retirement annuity is simply not enough to generate the income you need, for the retirement you want... ››› more

  • Why the most common argument against dividends is wrong!
  • The most common argument you hear from investors who aren't interested in dividends is that the company should be able to find something better to do with its cash than give it back to shareholders. They say the funds should be used to grow the business either by investing in the business itself or by acquiring new ones. These are valid points but here's where they are wrong… Recomm... ››› more

  • MORE income than a share, SAFE like a bond
  • Last week, I explained the power of income investing. And how it can boost the overall performance of your portfolio…even in the worst of times. I also revealed (in short) some of the best ways to start generating an income for your portfolio. Today I'd like to delve deeper into one of those income investments. The reason why, is because they offer more income than a normal share... ››› more

  • Don't ignore the power of income investing
  • We all like to make a lot of money. It's human nature. Take investing for example… People tend to invest most of their money into stocks. Why? Because stocks are usually the best place to put your money for the highest and fastest growth. But by doing this, investors sometimes ignore or underestimate the importance of income investing. Here's what I mean…     ... ››› more

  • A $146 Billion market is up for grabs - Here's how you can profit
  • If you preached about marijuana legalisation 20 years ago, you probably would've been called a “stoner” or a “druggie”. Not to mention, you would've heard some stories “that smoking marijuana kills you”. But isn't the world a funny place? Fast-forward to today and this narrative has dramatically changed. Extensive research has proved that marijuana can help with various ill... ››› more

  • Why you should invest in these two stocks in 2019 if you want to double your income!
  • From mid-2002 to mid-2017, the JSE All Share returned a cumulative 420%. Doesn't sound too bad, right? But if you had re-invested dividends, the return would be over 700% Just think about that for a second… That's an extra 300% growth thanks to simply reinvesting the dividends. To put it another way, R10,000 back in mid-2002 would be worth over R50,000 invested in the JSE. Bu... ››› more

  • Beware: Not all stable coins are created equal
  • Last week, I introduced MoneyMorning readers to the world of stable coins - price-stable cryptocurrencies. Their ultimate goal? To eliminate volatility and create stability in crypto prices. Without price stability, cryptocurrencies may struggle to achieve mass adoption, widespread circulation and, ultimately, everyday use. So these cryptos could be a game-changer if they're able to so... ››› more

  • Forget about the much-anticipated Bitcoin ETF. Forget about the “big win for bitcoin” I mentioned last week. You see, there's even bigger news that could be a game-changer for bitcoin and cryptos. In short, Bitcoin could be on the verge of breaking through as a mainstream currency. And it's all thanks to a start-up company that's soon to be launched by one of the most powerful pl... ››› more

  • What is real income and how do you make it?
  • Do you know what the true meaning of generating an income is? It's not selling a TV or some furniture for a few thousand bucks. It's certainly not getting paid to take online marketing surveys. And it's definitely not receiving your wages every week or salary every month. The true meaning of “generating an income” is…        ________________________________________... ››› more
