I'd like to help you earn more in 2015. The beginning of the new year is the perfect time to set goals, and begin on the path to increase your passive income.
My approach to value investing is simple, build yourself a stream of passive income that increases every year. You can do this by buying quality stocks, and collecting their dividends (cash paid to the shareholders).
The income is passive, because after you've bought the stock there is no more effort on your part. You receive regular dividends (cash) just for holding the stock. The dividends keep coming regardless of stock prices going up or down.
Here's a list of some of the stocks that I own that have increased their dividends in the last 12 months:
International Business Machines (IBM), 15.79% increase
Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), 6.06%
Pepsico (PEP), 15.42%
United Technologies (UTX), 10.28%
BCE (BCE), 6.01%
Canadian National Railway (CNR), 16.28%
Empire (EMP.A), 8.33%
In 2004 Derek Foster retired at the age of 34, earning more than $25,000/year in dividends.
Earning a growing stream of passive income is possible, all it takes is education to learn what to buy and when.
I created Simply Investing to help people like you to learn quickly, and easily apply the principles of value investing. Hundreds of folks have taken my course, and reaped the rewards of building their own stream of income.
