    Does anyone know anything about dividend stocks? I hear they are all the rage now. My co-worker was saying that they're the best thing to invest in. Are they generally safer companies?

    Hold up a minute. Let me explain what a dividend stock is first. A dividend stock is a company that pays dividends instead of investing their money. Usually, this is because management is in agreement that their are no profitable ventures for them to invest in. Really large corporations that generate lots of revenue typically do this. The return is around 2.5-3.5%. Usually, they are the least risky investments, but not always the best. If you want a very long term safe strategy then this would work. Not a good short term strategy.

    Set up a Vanguard EFT account. Leave it alone for 30+ years. Best choice for retirement. Just make sure the EFT you go with has large companies that you are comfortable with. Do your research as always.

    This is definitely a long term strategy. If you are planning on investing in Dividend stocks then research on Dividend Aristocrat company stocks. These stocks have increased their dividend payments for more that 25 years. As the S&P 500 is at a all time high I would probably hold off investing until the market corrects because entering at the right time could also generate capital gains. Looking back if anyone invested in strong dividend paying stocks in 2008 they would enjoy excellent income and fabulous capital growth.

    I would avoid putting money into the markets at the moment. I agree with Hamza as the market has reached a high and as its may its time to sell and go away. I always like to keep tabs on the market and when the next bear market or crash hits I will be looking to buy these dividend aristocrats on sale.

    Definitely agree. Most of my money is invested in dividend stocks that have a track record of increasing their dividend payments. Stocks such as Procter & Gamble, Diebold, Astrazeneca to name a few. You can actually find a full list of dividend stocks on the I've posted a video below from the founders. There's some pretty good advice on offer.

    Dividend stocks are definitely for the long term. You might buy the stock and it could fall 10% to 20% which is why entry is so important. I am also waiting for the next crash to buy these stocks on sale.
