Dividend Investing Finance Becomes More Complex

By Tim Plaehn, Investors Alley, Wednesday, April 14

Recently, my wife—who does not follow the financial world—asked me how a hedge fund works. She read about the immense loss suffered by Credit Suisse due to the Archegos hedge fund meltdown. She wanted to know if the losses would affect customers of the bank. The discussion started me thinking about how complicated our financial and investment world is and how hard it can be for individual investors to keep up.

The world of investing has become tremendously complicated, and the Internet provides almost limitless amounts of information. However, the time you have in which to study investing is not without limit. The financial media takes advantage by providing useless soundbite after useless soundbite. I use the word useless if your goal is to invest profitably for the long term, such as for the rest of your life.

I know investors subscribe to my services for investment ideas, but I am proud of the high level of truly helpful education I provide through various communication channels.

For example, this month, the Investors Alley team is putting on a Forever Dividends Masterclass. On the Week One webinar, I noted that just the Masterclass education was worth 100 times the $79 enrollment.

I also include a detailed education section in every issue of the Dividend Hunter newsletter. I want subscribers to understand the details and nuances of investing for a high-yield income. More education makes it easier for me to help my subscribers be successful dividend-focused investors.

Here are a few topics that I share in the Dividend Hunter subscription service:

  • The benefits and drawbacks of pass-through business structures, including real estate investment trusts (REITs) and business development companies (BDCs).
  • The differences between the exchange-traded packaged products, including exchange-traded funds (ETFs), exchange-traded notes (ETNs), and closed-end funds (CEFs).
  • How covered call funds work to generate outstanding dividend payments.
  • Portfolio management to be successful through the ups and downs of the stock market.
