This is somewhat extreme but watch how this Canadian couple chose financial independence over home ownership.  They are in their 30s and,...

Tea with Solace: A review of Dividend Machines.

Friday, March 20, 2015

The following is a voluntary review by a guest blogger, Solace, who signed up for the income investing course, Dividend Machines.

Solace says:

Disclaimer : I am not paid or given free access to the course materials to do this review. Solace has paid $XXX USD like everybody else to take a look at the course content. These are my personal views and readers should make their decision on whether the online course is value for money.

The online course has 4 Modules:

- Personal Finance (Covers the mindset, psychology and own personal financial situation.

- Dividend Machines (Covers 8 checklists/steps in screening for dividends stock)

- REITs (All about REITs, business, valuation, financial, management etc)

- Portfolio Management

In addition, there are also:

1. Video lessons

Where they do in depth case studies and how to screen for stocks based on their methodology.

Video Lessons will commence from 25 March 2015, Wednesday onwards.

2. Q & A session

You can post your question in this segment. The Trainers have been rather prompt in answering your queries. All questions are usually answered within 24 -48 hours from observation.

Website: Dividend Machines.

I leave it readers to read more about it.

Who is the course suitable for?

In short, this course is excellent for all who are looking for insight and a consistent method to screen for dividend stocks.

This is especially so for beginners who are still trying to find their way. Even for seasoned investors, time to time we might need to defrag all knowledge we have in our mind and this course helps to do that. It helps to streamline our thought process.

While many of the fundamental concepts are not new to me, I still look forward to the case studies where I can exercise my brains to practice analyzing. I am also attracted to the Q&A section where there will be interesting discussion with fellow investors and trainers.

In my interactions with many people who are starting out with investment, I would recommend them to read different kinds of investment books. This has worked extremely well for me. However, there are people who have difficulties digesting the content inside the book and find it hard to apply them. Another group might be overloaded with many schools of thought and do not know which methods work best for them.

This particular group will always wonder: 

"What is the essence of investing? Is there an easy method which I can follow?”

What the Fifth Person has done is basically summarize the key points and presented them in a very clear, easy to understand and easy to follow manner. And there we have it, the very “essence” to dividends investing.

If you can follow the method well and are able to identify a good dividend stock that will serve you well for many years, then, paying a course fee of $XXX USD would well turn out to be a “multibagger investment” for you.

There is still slightly more than a day to sign up for the course and have a workshop session thrown in for free. Please go to the related post below for the link to sign up for the course.

Can I check if the Dividend Machine is a platform that provides all the statistical info (like earning per share, dividend for past 10 years, payout ratio for past ten years, etc) of each stock?

thanks, regards.

Hi RJ,

That sounds like a data provider. I don't think that is their purpose.

Dividend Machines will teach us how to fish. ;)
