The following is the transcript of a recorded call between the Financial Publisher of Newsmax Media, Aaron DeHoog, and one of his key financial writers, Bill Spetrino.
You will find snapshots of the original video throughout this script.
Hello, my name is Aaron DeHoog.
I am the Financial Publisher of Newsmax Media. Over the last few decades, my team and I have shown Americans just like you how to protect their wealth and consistently make profits.
We correctly foresaw the real estate crisis in 2005 and the stock market crash of 2008. We even predicted equities would rally in 2009 along with precious metals, like gold.
And because we correctly foretold all of these events, many of my financial experts have been featured on CNBC, Bloomberg, and Fox Business. Their books have become NY Times best-sellers and their investment videos have been viewed over 100 million times worldwide.
Others on my team have worked with CIA, Pentagon, and Wall Street to keep our financial system safe and fair for Main Street Americans.
Not to mention, we have direct connections with some of the most powerful financial names in the world — people like Steve Forbes, Jim Rogers, and T. Boone Pickens, to name just a few.
However, you've likely never heard of the man I am going to introduce you to in the next few moments.
You see, he's not the type that relishes the spotlight.
And on the surface, he looks like an "ordinary guy" who lives in the suburbs of Cleveland. In fact, with his modest house, Jeep Cherokee, and Levi jeans, he doesn't even try to keep up with the Joneses.
But what few know is that this "ordinary guy" has achieved what all of us desire, but very few have accomplished.
I am talking about absolute financial security.
And many of you may think you have it, but let me ask you, and answer honestly . . . do you ever worry about your finances? Do you get nervous opening up your quarterly investment statement? Does your stomach turn when you see the Dow Jones suddenly drop 250 points? What about this: Have you had to compromise your dream retirement because the numbers just didn't add up?
If you answered yes to any of the above, you will want to listen closely.
Because this "ordinary guy" uses a forgotten investment strategy to get America's largest companies to completely fund his millionaire retirement . . . and has been living 100% worry-free ever since he turned 42.
And he has done so despite the fact that he wasn't born with a silver spoon, has never earned a six-figure salary, and avoids risky investments.
Today, I am not only going to introduce you to this "ordinary guy," but we are going to go a giant step further.
Being the regular person that he is, he's going to show you exactly how he achieved this absolute financial security so that you can follow in his footsteps.
It doesn't matter how old you are, what your net worth is, or where you live . . . anyone can do it. For example . . .
- He is going to expose three dangerous mistakes most investors are currently making. One oversight could wipe out 50% of your savings.
- He will also reveal a strategy that pays a 100% annual return, and you can get started with literally pocket change. Another strategy could add an extra $175,000 on to your retirement.
- And he will provide hard evidence as to why we are in for a monumental 12-year stock market rally that will hand average investors returns of 399%. And for those who are position right, well, you could easily get two or even three times that amount.
Now, if you doubt these claims I just made . . . well . . . GOOD!
That means you are a shrewd investor and already ahead of the curve. As you know, all investments carry risk and nobody can accurately predict the future, especially in this market.
BUT PLEASE ALSO KNOW, I DON'T MAKE THESE CLAIMS LIGHTLY.
I have complete trust in the man that I am about to introduce you to. In fact, three years ago I told my own father to listen to his sage advice, and he hasn't stopped thanking me since.
And I am personally sitting on 85% profits as a result of this man.
In fact, his strategy for investing has been ranked #1 by Hulbert Financial out of thousands of other models.
So without further delay, I want to turn the microphone over to the person who has not only changed my financial future for the better — but has already changed the financial future for the TENS OF THOUSANDS who heed his advice on a daily basis.
Bill . . . why don't you take it from here.
My name is Bill Spetrino.
The truth is, I'm not a financial genius. I didn't go to Harvard, work on Wall Street, or start a hedge fund. I did get a degree in accounting, and my first real job was as a professor at a community college.
I taught for a full decade and after years of saving and pinching pennies, my wife and I were finally able to muster out $10,000 to invest in the stock market.
However, unlike most people, I didn't hand my cash over to a financial adviser, cross my fingers, and hope for the best.
Instead, I harnessed a simple, forgotten strategy that has allowed investors to amass millions.
Now, I didn't adapt this unique strategy from Warren Buffett, Donald Trump, or the latest investment gimmick promoted on CNBC.
And it's not a strategy that takes a lot of my time.
It is actually the same strategy that I starting implementing when I was in first grade.
Wait a minute, Bill. There is no way you started investing in stocks in first grade . . .
Not in stocks, but in baseball cards. And at that age, I didn't know I was investing. I just knew I was making money.
See, my parents bought me a pack of baseball cards for five cents. Now, inside this pack was a Sam McDowell card, the pitcher for the Cleveland Indians. I lucked out, I guess, because he was the rage of the day. Everyone loved him.
Now, my father was a huge sports fanatic and he had taught me the difference between "value players" and those who were "here today and gone tomorrow."
Sam McDowell fell into that "here today and gone tomorrow" category so I knew the long-term value of the card would eventually diminish.
However, there was a certain kid in my class who just loved Sam McDowell. Would you believe he was willing to pay 35 cents for the card? I sold instantly, and that 35 cents enabled me to buy seven more packs of cards.
And then boom. I landed another "here today and gone tomorrow" player. Again, I sold that card for more than the entire pack cost me.
About a month later, my father came into my room and saw six shoeboxes full of baseball cards. He was livid. "How did you get all these cards?" He thought I blew all my allowance money on them. I told him my strategy and then showed him the $36 I had saved from my little side business.
He was impressed.
And here is the key to my little card business. The entire time, I kept the great players . . . those who had long-term value. In fact, I still have many of those cards today.
Thus began the origins of my strategy that has given me absolute financial security.
Bill, come on . . . are you serious?
Aaron, how is investing in stocks really any different?
Most investors today buy stocks like my elementary friends bought baseball cards. And in doing so, they are making three major mistakes . . .
Bill, I think our listeners are eager to hear about these mistakes because most Americans today are totally frustrated with their investments.
There is uncontrollable volatility in the stock market. We have QE this and QE that. Safe investments pay insultingly low returns. The dollar is losing value. And we are being told 10 different ways to invest and they all seem to contradict each other.
It's not pretty out there.
In fact, a recent survey by LIMRA Retirement Research found that 40% of Americans have nothing saved for the future — NOTHING AT ALL!
It is an epidemic.
Other studies reveal similar results
Get this . . . Wells Fargo recently reported that the average person in his 50s has a retirement nest egg of a paltry 29,000 bucks. This is alarming. Middle-class Americans should have at least $1 million in savings before they consider retiring. And perhaps that's why the same report revealed that a full 72% of Americans are planning to work through their golden years.
Well, then it is safe to say that it's important to discuss the three mistakes most investors make. But afterwards, I want you to tell those listening how they can obtain the same absolute financial security that you have.
I think many will be especially interested in how you developed a strategy to garner 100% annual returns and why you are completely convinced the stock market is positioned for a record-breaking 12-year rally that will hand over 399% gains.
I agree, but trust me . . . you will never get there if you are making these three mistakes.
People trade with their heart, not their mind.
They let their emotions make their decisions.
And here is the thing . . . most people watching this video are screaming, "I KNOW THIS ALREADY." And they do! They know this is not what they are supposed to do, but . . . many of you listening are still doing it.
Just like the kids I sold the baseball cards to — they loved the players, they watched "last night's game," and they were excited to buy, so they bought, at a premium.
Think about it.
As the market plunged in 2008, did you sell stocks? If so, you missed out on the massive rally back. Sure, it was a scary time. We saw stocks like Coca-Cola drop to $20 per share, but now Coke has rallied back up to above $35. If you sold, you sold because of fear, when in fact, you should have been buying.
And have you ever paid too much for a darling stock? Or perhaps for a house? If you did, you likely did out of emotion. Perhaps greed, or perhaps out of fear that if you didn't get in now, you never would get the chance.
So, before you buy your next stock, make sure you are not doing it because you just love that company, or fear missing out on a huge opportunity, but you are making the purchase because the stock has strong fundamentals. And the same with selling; don't sell out of fear.
Bill, we don't have time to get into all the fundamentals that you use to buy a stock. I know you have a proprietary 18-point grading system that is pretty complicated. But do you think you can provide those listening with a report that gives out some of the basic information?
Sure, I already have one written. It is called Rich by Friday.
Now, I named it that not because readers will literally be rich by this upcoming Friday, but because it reveals a rock solid blueprint for achieving absolute financial security that anyone can implement within a week. But how do I get this report to those listening?
It's simple. I will put a button underneath this video. It may take a few minutes to do so, but once it is up, our viewers can click on it, and a new page will open that will allow them to access the report. So what exactly is in the report Rich by Friday?
Well, I reveal my proprietary 18-point investment strategy. This strategy will expose powerful insider tips on how to evaluate a stock's true value. Once you understand these tips, you will never overpay for a stock again, and you will find true bargains that can hand you double and even triple digit winners year after year. It's literally a blueprint that anyone can start using within the next week.
Well, I love the sound of that. The button should appear below this video momentarily.
But, lets get back to the three mistakes most investors are making.
Mistake #1 "People trade with emotion." What is the second mistake most investors make?
They ignore inflation.
I learned this in first grade as well.
You see, certain baseball cards were way overprinted. I paid close attention to this. Some of my classmates didn't. I used that to my advantage.
Clearly, cards would have to be "rare" in order to hold their long-term value. Meaning, there are only a few in print. So I kept those cards. But, I would sell off the cards that were overprinted.
And overprinting is exactly what our federal government is doing with our dollar through QE1, QE2, Operation Twist, QE3, and the host of other technical terms for . . . printing money.
It's simple: The more they print the dollar, the less the value.
And I don't want to get into "why" our government is doing this. Just know that they are doing it because they are convinced it will help our economy, and it is not going to stop.
I am putting a chart up now to explain this better.
Don't ignore this simple truth: The dollar is losing intrinsic value. In fact, it has lost 50% of its value since 1985.
Interesting. So for those who put $10,000 in a low rate bank account in 1985, well, today they have about half the purchasing power.
Correct. Hence, how many will lose up to 50% of their wealth without even knowing it. Playing it safe isn't safe at all. It is actually one of the most dangerous things you can do. Inflation will quietly rob your wealth.
So . . .
Mistake #1 is "people trade with emotion" and mistake #2 is "people ignore inflation." What is mistake #3?
They trust the wrong people.
When I hit middle school, kids started rigging the baseball card system. They would target a buyer for a specific card. They knew he wanted it, and they could sell it, but in order to increase their profits . . . all they would have to do is have some of their friends talk to the potential buyer about the card.
They would juice it up — tell him that it would be worth three times as much a few months down the road. They would create artificial demand by saying if he didn't buy it, they would . . . and so forth.
Aaron — the same exact thing is happening today in the stock market.
Investors are blindly trusting their stock brokers and so-called experts. Look, not all brokers are bad. But think about it . . . most don't have your best interest at heart.
Are you familiar with Henry Blodget?
Yes. He was the Merrill Lynch analyst who routinely hyped stocks to investors, despite knowing they were worthless.
Exactly. One famous example: On the day Merrill Lynch gave the company "Excite" the second highest rating, Blodget sent an internal company email saying the stock was "such a piece of crap."
Or take Jack Grubman, an "analyst" for Salomon Smith Barney. In 2002, he upgraded AT&T. Why? Because doing so got his kid into an "Ivy League" preschool. "Played him like a fiddle" is how Grubman described the move.
Think of how many innocent investors lost money as a result of their selfishness!
And these are not isolated incidents. Take Goldman Sachs. Their managing directors famously refer to clients as "Muppets."
Here is something I think is startling: Independent market studies have found that 94% of stocks have a "buy" or "hold" rating.
Just think about that for a moment: 94% of the companies out there are given either a buy or hold rating . . . so just 6% of stocks are rated "sell."
Shocking, isn't it?
I don't even give 6% of the companies out there a hold rating. I might give 1% a buy rating.
Bill, the tough thing for those watching right now is this . . . who can they trust?
Well, I am going to humbly throw my hat in the ring in a few minutes.
But, you should know, there are some really good brokers out there.
Just be picky. Make sure they have your best interest at heart.
But, even then, do your own due diligence on your investments. Nobody will ever care about your financial future as much as you do. Nobody.
So conduct your own due diligence before investing. That is easy to say, but hard to implement.
Well, that's why it is important that we get my report Rich by Friday into the hands of those listening. Once you understand how to evaluate a stock you will be able to do your own research.
If I can do it, I truly believe anyone can. You just need to be shown how.
To that point, Bill, America's largest companies completely fund your retirement. In fact, they have done so ever since you were 42 years of age.
What's amazing, is that you confessed to me that you have never made a six-figure salary . . . yet, somehow, you reached millionaire status long ago. And currently all your living expenses are paid for, plus some!
You live a life that most envy.
So, how did you do it? And probably more important for our readers, how can they garner a 100% annual return, and what tip can you give them that will add an extra $175,000 to their retirement accounts?
Well, implementing my 18-point proprietary system has allowed me to achieve the lifestyle I have.
We don't have time to go over all of these today, but here are three cornerstone rules to follow that will go a long ways! I am going to go over these quickly, so for our listeners, pay close attention, and I would encourage you to take notes.
Rule No. 1: Find Warhorse Stocks That Pay You
See 150 years ago, companies paid you money.
Investors didn't watch their stocks go up and down in value every day. Heck, they didn't even do that on a quarterly basis. They just wanted to make sure the companies they owned paid them cash.
Nowadays, people trade stocks on their cell phones based on a rumor they heard on the subway from an inexperienced broker who just passed his Series 7. This kind of easy access to trades has made the market volatile.
But you have to ignore that volatility, and you do that by owning companies that retain their value and pay you money.
There are several companies you can buy today that survived world wars, depressions, recessions, the tech bust, the real estate crisis, and more . . . and they still pay you to own them.
I am talking about companies like Coca-Cola.
I get your point Bill, but a lot of these companies don't really pay much. Coke pays about two-and-a-half percent dividend . . .
At first sight Aaron, you are right.
And that brings me to the second point
Rule No. 2: Find Stocks that Regularly Increase Their Dividends
This is incredibly important, so listen closely.
We will use two fictional characters — Bob and Tom — to illustrate this.
Bob and Tom each have $10,000 to invest, and they each find a $10 stock that pays a 5% dividend, or 50 cents, annually. That is a pretty nice dividend to take home.
Their stocks both increase in value at a 6% clip per year . . . so 30 years later, they are both valued at about $60,000.
That's great. Now let's look at the dividend payments.
Bob's stock keeps paying that 50 cents. It never wavers. So over the course of 30 years, Bob collects $15,000 in dividend income.
That is pretty awesome.
So when you add up the dividends paid out and the value of the stock, Bob's $10,000 investments is eventually worth just shy of 75 grand.
Now let's look at Tom.
Tom's stock actually increases its dividend at 6% per year in order to keep up with the increase in the stock's value.
Sure, 6% in year one means Tom's dividend goes from 50 cents to 53 cents. No big deal. But guess what, by year 30, Tom is collecting a whopping $2.84 per share.
Now this is where most people get fooled. Because in 30 years from now, the average person will look up that company on his fancy pants iPhone and he will see that the stock pays a 5% dividend.
What that average person doesn't see is that Tom bought that stock 30 years ago for 10 bucks, and that the dividend of $2.84 a share is actually a 28% effective annual yield for Tom . . . that's $2,840 per year from an original investment of $10,000.
So when you add up the dividends paid out and the value of the stock, Tom's original investments vaults up to $100,638.
That's about $26,000 more than Bob.
Come on Bill. Let's get real.
That's a 28% dividend. Name one stock that can generate this type of return?
Actually, I already did: Coca-Cola.
This stock currently pays a yield of 2.77%.
But, let's say you bought $10,000 of this stock 30 years ago. The total dividend payout per year would actually be $11,190.
No, that is per year. So literally, every year you get paid over 100% of your original investment for holding a "boring" stock.
Wow. It's no wonder why you live with such absolute financial security
Several other stocks have done the same. I have a list of four that have done even better than Coke.
Okay, well, that is great. First of all, can you send that list along with your report Rich by Friday.
Alright Bill. You have me convinced. It's important to follow your rule #2 — pay attention to dividend increases. But how can a person who is listening right now find information regarding the historical dividend payment on their own?
It's easy. For example, Yahoo Finance allows you to do it. When you look up a stock, click on the "historical prices" tab, and then click on dividends. It will show you each and every dividend ever paid out in the history of the company.
But, if you think those returns are nice, you haven't seen anything yet, because I haven't even talked about my third rule of investing.
Rule No. 3: Harness the Power of Compound Returns
Maybe you can explain what you mean by "compound returns" for those that may not be familiar with it.
Sure. Say you have $10,000 and you make 6% on it. That is a $600 profit. Instead of spending the 600 bucks, reinvest it — or compound it — and keep doing that.
So, year 2, instead of investing just $10,000, you are investing $10,600. That small interest adds up real quick.
Let's bring back the example of Bob and Tom.
And let's assume they both reinvest their money by taking that dividend and buying more stock with it.
This really changes the results.
Over the course of 30 years, Bob's total return is $119,158.
Tom's total return, get this, Tom's total return balloons to $254,788. That's $154,000 more than he would have received if he didn't compound his returns.
And, since I know you will ask, if a person bought Coca-Cola 30 years ago and compounded those returns, they would be sitting on a whopping $513,000.
So $10,000 turns into $513,000. It's amazing to see how fast the returns grow.
And Aaron, remember when I told you I would reveal to those listening how they can make 100% per year off their investments.
Well, because Tom is compounding his returns by purchasing more stock, he now earns a whopping $10,192 a year from his original investment of 10,000 bucks.
So he is essentially making a 100% annual return each and every year at this point.
Bob on the other hand, because his dividends did not increase, earns only $3,000 a year.
And what about the $175,000 tip.
It's right there in front of you.
Many listening may think they are investing the right way by purchasing warhorse stocks that hold their value.
But by simply looking at the dividend history and by compounding their returns, a person can amass roughly $250,000 instead of $74,693.
That is literally a difference of $176,095.
Now, you are flying through a lot of math and calculations. Can you do me a favor and include some of this information in the special report you are putting together?
Great. Thanks. And for those listening, that button will appear soon so that you can access a copy of Rich by Friday along with Bill's report detailing 4 additional stocks that have a solid history of increasing their dividend.
Bill — there two things bothering me.
First of all, the examples you just used of Bob and Tom are great, but let's face it, those returns are over a 30 year period. Some listening today don't have 30 years!
I understand the concern.
First of all, plan on living a long time. People are outliving their wealth every day.
Secondly, I have been using Coca Cola in today's example, but there are several stocks that fit my criteria that pay a much higher dividend and are a better purchase right now . . .
And third, these returns will add up quicker than you think.
Okay, I agree with you on that. In fact, I brought a spreadsheet with me today that reflects exactly what you are saying.
In May of 2010, you convinced me to buy your favorite stock. It was one of those stocks, as you said, that always increases its dividend.
At the time, the annual dividend was $1.35 per year. It currently pays $1.76. That's a major increase in such a short time.
Just doing the math in my head . . . that's about a 30% pay increase.
And here is where it gets fun. I bought that stock at $20.34. It is currently priced at $33.49. That's a 63% return right there.
But . . . since my purchase, I have received $4.17 in dividends.
So when I factor that in, my total return is 85%.
I am going to make one correction to your story.
I actually recommended you buy that stock in May of 2009 not May of 2010. It took a year for you to finally listen.
Had you bought when I said, and compounded your return, you would be sitting on profits of 289%.
[laughs] Well, thanks Bill for ruining my success story!
So yes, you are right. These returns add up quicker than most think.
There is just one other thing that is bothering me, and it is this. What happens if the stock market tanks tomorrow. What if it drops 50% or more this year?
Great question, and I am glad you asked.
I personally don't worry. Look, I know America has its problems. But it's easy to focus on the negative. The reality is, we are on the edge of an unprecedented stock market rally.
In fact, I just sent a private email to some of my close friends titled "It's time to go all in."
Bill, I was one of the guys on that email chain. And that letter prompted me to call you and host this video today. What you provided in that email was shocking. It's hard to argue with the cold, hard facts.
Do you mind if I forward that exact email on to those listening?
Yes, by all means, send it. But I say some pretty controversial things in there, just as a warning.
I think those listening would like the unfiltered version actually. They need to know the truth.
My favorite part is how you pinpoint the exact day when you believe all of this will unfold.
I would say explain your reasoning in detail right now, but it would be much easier for people to understand by reading the email.
Bill, you give five rock-solid reasons for this massive 12-year stock market rally. However, for this conversation, let's just focus on one of those reasons.
I was most impressed with the chart you had in your email! I am going to pull it up for our audience to see.
It really clarifies things.
You see, stocks tend to trade in 15-year cycles. And we are about to break out of one of those cycles.
Here is the chart.
There are multiple versions of this chart. But this one is my favorite because it goes all the way back to 1896.
You will notice that there are four bull-market periods. The average return of these periods is 399%, and the average bull-market cycle is about 12 years.
You will also notice that there are four bear-market periods. The returns during these years are pretty much flat, and average about 17 years.
Now notice that there is a major dip in the middle of these flat periods. I call these "mid-cycle dips." After these dips, the market trends flat for a few years before starting another massive bull market rally.
We hit that mid-cycle dip in 2009.
And right now we are in a rebuilding phase.
Sure, there will be some gyrations, but history shows us that the worst is behind us, and a major bull market will start forming very soon.
Now, as mentioned, the average bull market cycle has lasted for about 12 years and returned 399%.
Bill, that's an amazing chart, and solid proof that we are on the verge of a major bull market. But that 399% figure is just an average, it's not really a certainty is it?
But to be blunt — I think 399% is a conservative estimate. As you know, in that email, I describe in great detail exactly why we will see this monumental bull market using four other unquestionable pieces of evidence. And to warn listeners . . . some of these facts break every rule you know about investing.
But facts are facts.
This next rally could be the largest of them all, even larger than the last bull market that delivered returns of 1003%.
And let me get this straight.
If a person is . . . as you said . . . "positioned correctly" . . . they could double or even triple those returns? So we are talking about returns of 2,000 to 3,000 percent!?
Consider this: Last year, 10 stocks accounted for 88% of the growth of the S&P 500.
Wow. So of the 500 stocks that make up the S&P 500, 10 of them accounted for 88% of that growth?
So the remaining 490 stocks . . . well, if one were to invest in those stocks, they didn't see any growth at all, really?
This is often referred to as a "stock pickers market."
So while I do believe we are on the verge of this major stock market rally, right now you have to be very careful about which stocks you buy.
Huh . . . okay, I am going to get a bit ahead of myself here . . . but I have to ask this.
Bill, you have a model portfolio that you share with a select group of people.
Do you own any of the 10 stocks that accounted for the 88% growth in the S&P 500?
Eight of them were in my model portfolio.
Amazing. That's impressive.
I am going to circle back around to your model portfolio in a second, because I know you are going to give viewers a chance to access to it. But first, can you give us one more reason why we shouldn't be worried about a massive stock market collapse?
Well, remember the first rule of investing?
Yes. Buy companies that are warhorse stocks.
Exactly. These stocks have already survived during the worst of times and will continue to thrive. Remember, a stock's price might fluctuate with the market, but its core business doesn't.
Look, if the stock market drops 20%, that doesn't mean the company's business dwindles 20%.
In fact, I personally love it when stocks tank because I can buy my favorite companies on clearance.
And I get why you do . . . because you have a lot of money, and a lot of profits built in already, so if stocks pull back, well, you have a cushion.
But Bill, a lot of people watching right now don't have that same cushion. Not to mention, you are still in your early 50s . . . so time is on your side.
You have a valid point, Aaron.
First of all, start small, and build confidence.
Secondly, you should still stay diversified. Don't put all your money in high-yielding stocks.
Third, read the email I am going to send you that gives five additional undeniable facts as to why we are on the verge of this 12-year bull market rally that will hand out 399% returns.
Now Bill, this isn't the first time you made bold predictions, and your track record is proof that you know what you are talking about.
And it was this solid track record that forced me to study your methodology for investing.
You actually call this methodology — this entire 18-point proprietary system for investing — "The Dividend Machine" — maybe you can explain that?
I named my system "The Dividend Machine" because it literally becomes a machine that pays me.
And this machine never breaks down. It never falters. It always runs. It always pays.
Think baseball cards one more time.
Remember I told you I kept those players that had "lasting value." Well, I still have these cards today. Players like Harmon Killebrew, Johnny Bench, and Rod Carew.
These guys really got the game. They had the mechanics. They knew how to get on base. And most importantly, they played for something bigger than themselves.
Sure, they may have had a bad game or two, or maybe even a bad season. But they were machines.
Of course, the only problem is baseball cards don't pay dividends, right?
That's actually a solid point because a portion of that initial $10,000 investment my wife and I started with, well, that came from selling some valuable baseball cards likes Mickey Mantle and Pete Rose.
One of the hardest things I have ever done!
But you are exactly right. Baseball cards don't pay dividends.
And it proved to be a wise move as that initial $10,000 started the foundation for your millionaire retirement.
Bill, as mentioned, I trust you.
Because of you, I have personally made 85% profits. And I have even passed your advice on to my father, who hasn't stopped thanking me.
And I trust you so much so that in March of 2009, my company reached out to you to find a way to get your dividend machine investment methodology out to the Newsmax audience.
This is actually an important point for those listening. Don't overlook this. You see, I have people approach me weekly asking to write for Newsmax. Money managers, CNBC contributors, and Wall Street veterans. I ignore the vast majority of these requests.
However, I actually had to find Bill and convince him to come on board with us. Because Bill is humble, he wasn't ready to have tens of thousands of people read his material.
Thankfully, he agreed to write with us. And about a month later we published the first issue of The Dividend Machine.
This is an 8-page newsletter that comes out every month that reveals what is REALLY happening in the stock market and gives Bill's top investment picks.
And as for the performance, it's second to none. Since launching The Dividend Machine newsletter in April of 2009, during the worst market since the Great Depression, the model portfolio has posted eye-popping profits of
And far more importantly, The Dividend Machine portfolio keeps pumping out cash like clockwork.
In fact, an independent rating agency, Hulbert Financial, ranked Bill's Dividend Machine #1 out of the hundreds of newsletters that are published.
And his tens of thousands of subscribers have been raving. Just listen to what a few have had to say:
- Coherent and Prudent
"I have read all the monthly publications, some multiple times, and believe this service to be the most coherent and prudent one available . . . Bill provides a very reasonable and sound strategy to investing for the long term." — David K. from Oregon
- Safe Returns
"If you are looking for safe double-digit returns, follow the advice of the Dividend Machine." — Earl R. from Ohio
- I Made a Profit
"I have, indeed, made a profit following Bill's recommendations and would recommend him to anyone looking for financial advice" — Jeremy Z. from California
Now, Aaron is pumping me up a lot here, so let me call a time out.
Look, I did not win the genetic lottery, and many people in the world are much richer and smarter than I'll ever be.
But here's the thing.
Most of these people, no matter how "rich" they are, will never experience the absolute financial security that I have. Despite accruing tens of millions, they still wake up at night worrying about their money . . . and many should worry, because they are not investing the right way.
It's this absolute financial security that allowed me to retire at 42, to stop worrying about my investments, to reach millionaire status years ago, and that has, most importantly, allowed me to spend my time how I would like to spend it — with friends and family, going to watch the Cleveland Indians play, and also teaching others, like you, how to follow in my footsteps.
So what I am trying to show you is how to have absolute financial security. And you do that by creating your own efficient, powerful dividend machine.
And the fact is . . . anyone can do it.
And that's why we created The Dividend Machine newsletter.
It's the ONLY advisory service that provides you with Bill's handpicked recommendations for building your own personal dividend machine — one that could eventually pay you thousands, perhaps even tens of thousands of dollars a month in dividend income.
Each newsletter reviews the macro environment and then focuses on one specific investment move you can make at that very moment.
And between monthly issues, Bill will even send an email update every Tuesday so you are never left in the dark.
If you would like to find out more about his newsletter, simply click the button below this video.
Once you do, you will be given full details on how to receive the report Rich by Friday, the four stocks that have a history of increasing dividends, and Bill's private email "It's Time to Go All In." This email pinpoints the very day the 12 year, 399% bull market rally will start.
Bill, we have explored a lot of issues. You have done exactly what you told me you would do.
You have shown us how to avoid three critical blunders we could be making with our investments.
You have shown us how to generated annual returns of 100%.
And you have shown us why you believe the stock market is on the verge of a historic 12-year rally that will hand investors returns of 399%.
Any last words of advice for our listeners, Bill?
Yes. Don't wait.
I hear people say all the time that they will wait until a bit later to get their investments in order.
They never get around to it. They never enjoy the absolute financial security that is so easy to access.
To your point Bill, I waited a year to follow your advice. And because of that, I am sitting on a profit of 85% instead of cashing in on gains of 289%.
Now, I have one last thing to tell our viewers today.
