Earlier this week, one company quietly announced a huge 16.5% dividend. And the stock price immediately jumped.
The move went unnoticed by most investors. Yet a select group of investors knew that this announcement would be coming. They expected the move, and were prepared to act fast.
You see, these urgent dividend situations happen every week. And I’d like to bring you into the fold on these timely income trades.
Most folks think dividend investing is only about buying and holding blue chip stocks for 5, 10, and even more than 20 years. And that’s a great strategy for building long-term wealth.
It’s exactly how I got started investing when my grandparents gave me a few shares of Exxon stock, and enrolled me in the dividend reinvestment plan.
At the time, I was just a toddler. But by the time I was 12 years old, the tiny investment was worth more than $10,000. And I was immediately hooked on dividend investing.
Dividend stocks continue to make up a huge part of my personal investment portfolio. I own many blue chip dominators, including Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL), Pfizer (NYSE: PFE), and Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC). while these are amazing companies, their dividends are relatively small.
That’s why my colleague – Steve Mauzy – and I embarked on a mission to uncover the world’s biggest dividends. Our research analyzed 4,218 of the biggest payouts from 1992 – 2015. And we uncovered some startling facts.
Right now could be the very BEST time to get started with these income trades for one key reason:
Donald Trump’s Big Tax Reforms
Whenever the tax code changes, public companies and their executives, board members and accountants look to maximize the benefit (or limit the downside).
On Jan. 20, Donald J. Trump will be inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States. Whether you’ve an avid Trump supporter…or a vocal critic…it doesn’t matter.
What DOES matter is that tax reform is at the top of Trump’s “To Do” list. In fact, it’s right behind repealing Obamacare.
Trump plans to slash the corporate federal tax rate from a current 35% down to just 15%. That would give the U.S. the lowest tax rate among developed countries around the world.
Meanwhile, he is also considering a tax holiday to encourage U.S. companies to bring back cash that’s stowed away in offshore tax heavens from Bermuda and Luxembourg.
With a one-time tax of just 10%, it’s likely that more than $1 trillion in overseas cash will come rushing back into the U.S. And it could happen before the end of 2017.
The bottom line is this: big changes are happening in Washington.
In fact, it’s already starting. Yesterday, House Republicans met with Vice President Mike Pence to discuss initial steps to dismantle Obamacare.
Right now, you have two choices.
Option 1 is to ignore what’s happening, and simply hope for the best. And option 2 is to prepare for the inevitable by developing new strategies.
Tonight’s urgent briefing will prepare you for Trump’s tax reforms. Our analysis indicates that changes to the tax code could spark a new wave of dividend increases in 2017.
Get ready for these changes, and discover how to collect the biggest dividends.
