How to Invest $50K Right Now for Maximum Profits (and Payouts)
Inside this exclusive briefing you’ll discover:
- Why this market meltdown is based on a flawed premise,
- My private strategy for 20%+ returns every year, and
- 12 Stocks and funds set to soar as the 10-year takes a breather.
Dear CIR Member,
As you saw in your October issue of CIR, we’re buying dividend bargains.
I shared two of my favorite long-term ideas, but today I’d like to share a dozen more dividend favorites.
These are a bit different in flavor as they are shorter-term plays. Trades, if you will.
It’s a taboo word in the income investing world, and that’s too bad.
Because what’s wrong with us opportunistically grabbing 20% price upside in a few months?
The stock market gifts us this “free money” as surely as the seasons turn. As you’ve probably noticed by now, the stock market is one giant pendulum.
In August, investors were giddy with greed. We contrarians were skeptical. In that issue of CIR–just nine weeks ago!–I warned:
“If you’re looking to put a lot of money to work, don’t force the issue. More high-yield giveaways will appear in the months ahead. Better to buy right than overpay.”
Now, just two months later, the bargains are here. And nobody wants them! Investors and money managers are throwing in the towel. Despair surrounds us.
Take vanilla investing website MarketWatch.com, which reported last week that “extreme fear” has returned to the stock market.
Gee, thanks. Where was this headline two months ago?
Meanwhile Bloomberg warns that Bond Vigilantes Risk Breaking the Markets.
Um, I think the breakage already happened. Stocks are down and bonds are down more.
It’s time to buy.
As the latest meltdown unfolded, I could feel the tension coming from our customer service lines.
Our subscribers are a smart, even-keeled bunch. As a group, we stay laser-focused on dividends.
That said, some stray from their belief in their portfolios when prices drop day after day. Our phones ring the most at market bottoms.
I was doing my best to calm our publisher:
“This is the time to buy. Hasn’t been this good since March.”
CNN’s Fear and Greed Index (FGI) dipped into the Extreme Fear zone for the first time since March. Which, incidentally, was the last time I was this bullish.
Tuesday: Extreme Fear
Those March lows were a terrific time to back up the truck and buy everything.
In a couple of months, the mainstream suits will be singing about the Santa Claus rally that nobody saw coming.
It’s starting soon. If it hasn’t started already!
This is quite the contrast with the joyful mood investors had in early August. The herd was outright giddy. I took this photo of CNN’s FGI for our August 3 edition of Dividend Swing Trader service to capture the moment:
Just Two Months Ago: Extreme Greed
It’s tempting to run to the sidelines, but this isn’t the time. We can panic later—and sell any portfolio dogs when vanilla investors will take them off our hands at higher prices.
This is our time to shine. Buy everything.
Peak Selling Pressure Was Last Month
More than $28 trillion in stocks sank to new one-month lows on Tuesday, September 26.
This was a level on par with the ultimate market lows in October 2022.
A complete panic. Also a “close our eyes and buy” contrarian moment.
Fast forward to Tuesday, October 3, the panic level was higher.
CNN FGI sank lower.
Our phones rang more.
The S&P slumped to new index lows.
And the 10-year yield soared to 4.8% in the overnight trading session.
The collective one-month lows fell. Short of $21 trillion. Bad, but less bad—which is when the easy money is made.
(The 10-year would subsequently pop to 4.9% within days–and quickly reverse. More on this important clue shortly.)
The selling pressure is subsiding. This is how new major lows are formed—with a bullish divergence at the bottom. The indices hit new lows, but the market leaders (those with the largest market caps) did not experience the same level of share dumping.
Which shows the smart money is buying. They realize this meltdown is based on a fictional narrative.
This Meltdown is Based on a Flawed Premise
This entire meltdown is based on a flawed premise. We must take advantage of it, before sanity returns to the markets.
The 10-year Treasury yield soared to 4.9%. On its journey to the stars, the higher 10-year has clipped equities severely along the way.
A high benchmark rate upsets every applecart in finance.
But here’s the thing. This is not a sustainable move.
Inflation isn’t really in a spiral higher. In fact, it’s the opposite. Core PCE (personal consumer expenditures)—the Federal Reserve’s preferred measure of inflation—is dropping like a rock:
Fed’s Preferred Inflation Measure is Dropping Fast
Note, this excludes food and energy prices. Which, some argue, is not appropriate because oil prices are high again.
I’ve been an oil bull since April 2020—and I disagree that high oil is worrisome for inflation. Future inflation, that is.
High oil prices are a tax on the consumer. Yes, another drag on the economy, as are high interest rates.
High crude slows the economy. It likely already has. And the Fed’s rate hiking mission will bring a recession.
Then, when the economy slows, Jay Powell’s Fed will ease rates.
And rate-sensitive stocks will rip fast off their lows.
Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco President Mary Daly admitted this on October 5th.
If financial conditions, which have tightened considerably in the past 90 days, remain tight, the need for us to take further action is diminished.
Fedspeak translation: The bond vigilantes did our dirty work for us. We don’t need to hike again.
The rate hike cycle is effectively over. But basic investors are dumping bonds and their “proxies” like utilities with fervor. Which presents an unprecedented opportunity for us.
But we need to hurry. We’re not alone in sniffing out this value.
Bond God Gets It: “Buy a T-Bill and Chill”
On cue, our boy the “Bond God” Jeffrey Gundlach weighed in with simple advice:
His point: The 10-year rate is high. It won’t be this high for long. Take the deal and the generous distribution.
My fellow Bills fan then took to X (formerly Twitter … whatever) and warned that this final yield spike is likely a last hurrah for the economy:
This is exactly what unfolded sharply and swiftly in May 2007. The spike in yields locked up the credit markets and ultimately ushered in the 2008 financial crisis:
2023 Yield Spike Rhymes (Scarily!) with 2007
Scary? Yeah. But that’s why we’re traders. We’re nimble and can react as we need to.
I don’t believe we’re heading towards 2008. Neither does Gundlach.
And even if we are, the time to panic will be later—when the sentiment pendulum swings once again to happiness.
With the Fear and Greed Index recently touching 16 out of 100, we’re buying. And we can do even better than T-Bills.
Better Than T-Bills: A Dozen DST Buys
Mark my words. We’ll see “safe havens” like utilities and telecoms bounce back in a big way. They’ll rally relentlessly for a multi-week to multi-month period.
And then—only after they are up big—will we hear from pundits that it’s safe to buy bonds and their proxies. Later, gator!
Kinda like the August highs, when we heard that stocks had cleared “key technical levels” and the “all-safe” sign was in.
We, however, saw danger in August because the crowd couldn’t have been greedier.
Likewise, we see safety today as the vanilla types couldn’t be more fearful.
In short, NOW is the time to buy.
Did you see how the markets reacted after the jobs report was released? Yields spiked and stocks sank. It was “another disaster” in the inflation fight.
Then a funny thing happened mid-morning. Yields quickly flew to 4.9%—their highest levels since 2007—and immediately sank back lower. And stocks bottomed and bounced!
This yield action is how markets act at tops. They test new highs, and can’t sustain them. This “failed breakout” is a bearish sign for interest rates. And jet fuel for equities at large.
This quick reversal in stocks showed how markets act at bottoms. When stocks rally on supposedly “bad news” after selling off nonstop for weeks, that’s about as bullish as it gets.
Which is why we contrarians are acting right now.
I’m sure you’ve seen by now the two funds we added to our Contrarian Income Report portfolio in the October issue.
Both are great investments to tap into this market shift for steady dividends today, and big price gains as the 10-year rolls over.
But there are plenty more stocks & funds flashing on my radar that I’m not able to recommend to CIR members. (More on that in a moment.)
So if you’re ready for a little more action and bigger, faster gains than we’re going to enjoy via our buy-and-hold strategy …
Let me personally invite you to try “dividend swing trading” alongside me for secure, and steady, profits.
Here’s how it works …
Our 3 Steps to “Swing Trade” for Secure Profits
Our first rule of trading—don’t lose money.
Which is why cash is the first part of our swing trading formula:
- When we have no clear advantage, we sit on cash.
- We buy great dividend stocks and bond funds when the odds are overwhelmingly in our favor.
- We sell early, rather than later, to lock in maximum profits.
We sat on cash early and often last year and traded lightly. It’s the only thing to do when the Fed is sucking up liquidity and M2 is dropping.
We play defense.
But now that extreme fear has taken over the market, it’s time for us to focus on steps 2 and 3.
Buy right and sit tight—but not for too long! Book profits before we give them back.
As I said, we can’t do this in buy-and-hold services like CIR and HY.
Once in a while, sure, we can grab some sweet, fast profits.
But you hear the questions I get on my webcasts!
Many investors want to move slowly, enjoy their juicy dividends and not worry about daily market gyrations.
That’s fine, I respect it.
But you know me—I like to talk fast, write fast and trade fast. Because doing so is the key to some truly spectacular profits (and dividends!).
Let me walk you through a recent trade that my elite “inner circle” of DST members profited from.
Energy is a great sector to swing trade. Oil balloons and swoons. A dream for us contrarian traders.
Right around this time last year, we smartly identified Chevron (CVX) as a dirt-cheap dividend-growth stock in DST. At the time, I wrote:
CVX popped, exactly as predicted. We secured 15% profits in just a few weeks, good for 90% annualized gains.
The stock would eventually give back most of those gains.
Buy-and-hold investors didn’t enjoy our swing trade profits, but at DST, we’re NOT afraid to sell high.
Valero (VLO) is another swing trade special. We held the refiner for less than 3 months and booked a 44% total return.
This annualizes to a 238% total return.
VLO would eventually give back many of those profits in the weeks that followed. We didn’t, though. We took the gains and moved to our next swing trade.
That’s what makes being a Dividend Swing Trader different: instead of riding along with a stock’s ups and downs (which works fine for many folks), we go one step further and sell when the time is right. That way, we keep more of our money!
Heck, if you like more active trading, DST could be the perfect “add on” to your CIR membership, nicely complementing those services’ longer-term recommendations with the odd short-term profit “pop.”
DST “works” just like CIR. I write you a note with each trade, explaining clearly what to buy, what to hold and what to sell.
Since we’re moving faster, you’ll hear from me more often—twice a month at least. When there’s a dividend trade to make, my DST subscribers are the first to know.
I’ll explain the mechanics of DST more in a moment.
First, though, let me tell you what’s new in my own personal trading approach.
My Emphasis: Turning Points
As the bear market unfolded last year, I had to make some quick changes for us all to profit from the new market that was suddenly before us.
A simple contrarian approach, while effective enough to keep our capital safe, won’t make big money in choppy markets like these.
The contrarian angle must also be used to identify turning points in markets.
That is where we are today … and where the real money is made.
Fortunately we already had the tools in place here at Contrarian Outlook to identify out-of-favor investments ready to turn. We just needed to pinpoint when that was going to happen.
Check out our recent trade of the iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT). Talk about making money out of nothing! The fund mostly went nowhere since October 2022. But at CIR, we bought near the lows and sold high, well before its recent fall from grace:
TLT Swing Trade: Buy Low, Sell High
Did we nail the exact bottom and top? No. But nobody does. We did well enough to earn a fast 12.3%, which annualized to 100% gains.
Today we have a dozen live recommendations in our DST portfolio.
Each one spring-loaded for big gains in the weeks and months ahead.
These are exactly the types of deals I’d love to let all of my CIR subscribers know about.
But I can’t because some are too small, and thousands of buyers would move the price. And some may require we move in (or out) more quickly than many readers would like.
Which is why they’re reserved for my Dividend Swing Trader subscribers.
With a membership that’s kept small and agile (on purpose) our subscribers can move into (and out of) investments like this quite easily.
I believe my Dividend Swing Trader system is the fastest, most reliable way to multiply BOTH your wealth and your income.
And if you want to achieve true financial independence … it could be your best path forward.
You don’t need to buy risky options, use margin or day trade.
You don’t need to gamble on any speculative plays like marijuana stocks or cryptos.
And I want to give you, a valued subscriber, VIP access to this unique service with no risk and no obligation whatsoever.
I’ll show you how to kick-start your trial in just a moment, but first, I know this is a way of trading dividends that’s, shall we say, a bit unorthodox to most investors. (Believe me, I know many members hate to sell—I hear it all the time!)
I want to make sure you’re comfortable, so let me pull the curtain back a bit farther and show you exactly what you can expect with Dividend Swing Trader.

This no-risk trial means you’ll be one of the few folks on earth getting my most profitable trades.
Because Dividend Swing Trader was specifically designed to deliver 20%+ returns per year—every year—through a combination of stock-appreciation AND cash dividends.
You’ll be joining members like Peter B. from New Hampshire:
“I’m spending more time generating income from my principal but part of my port is still about building more principal. DST fits nicely into that space.”
Or Scott D. from Florida:
“I started with Hidden Yields a couple of years back… When I read about Dividend Swing Trader I immediately got on the waiting list. Been here for about a year now.”
“Very good. You have definitely earned my trust… I love your in depth analysis and feel like you are really trying to help me the little guy instead of profit off of me. Love the sense of humor too.”
Or Jeff D. from Texas:
“Thank you, Brett. I have several investing services. You are always my go to guy. Your analysis has proven to be succinct and spot on. I greatly appreciate your delivery and expertise.”
Now, every individual’s experience is different, and please remember that all investing does come with a degree of risk, so I can’t promise you will see the same results as Peter, Scott or Jeff.
But here’s what I can tell you: over the coming months, we’ll be laser-focused on digging up stocks yielding 5%+, with potential upside of 15% a year.
Then, when these stocks get overvalued, we’ll simply cash in and swing to our next undervalued dividend payer!

Those would be 2 other bonus reports that reveal the inner workings of my Dividend Swing Trader system and clearly show you the steps we took to bank big, fast gains like a 37.7% return on the BlackRock Science & Technology Trust II (BSTZ) in just 4 months:
A 37.7% GAIN From BSTZ in 4 Months

A 17.9% Return on SAH in Only 5 Weeks!
Combined, these 2 additional volumes are valued at $198, but they’re all yours for FREE today.
Free Bonus Report #1:
How to Identify Market Tops (and Buy Dividends
on the Dip)
Buying low and selling high is what most investors try to do. But buying high and selling low is what most actually do!
You’ve probably heard that there’s no way to time the market, but that’s bunk.
Truth is, there are plenty of useful indicators out there, including seasonal trends and–of course–changes in the money supply, that we can absolutely use to make sure we’re getting in and out at the right times.
And when we apply these strategies to dividend stocks, we can nicely put ourselves in position for 5% dividends and double-digit price gains every year!
We did it with BSTZ, SAH and Valero—some of the successful trades I’ve shown you today. This report breaks down exactly how we’re going to do it again and again in the coming year—and beyond.
Free Bonus Report #2:
The Secret to Banking 20%+ Per Year with CEFs
Closed-end funds are perfect targets for Dividend Swing Trader for two reasons:
- Big yields: CEFs yield 7% on average and many yield a lot more—well into double-digits.
- Big discounts: CEFs also have an indicator of coming gains that no other investment has: the discount to net asset value (NAV).
Buying when a discount is wide and then “riding along” as it closes—propelling the fund’s price higher as it does—is a strategy we’ve used for years in DST and Contrarian Income Report.
This breakthrough report explains the ins and outs of timing your CEF buys for maximum dividends and upside.
These 2 Bonus Gifts Are Waiting For You
They’re yours for FREE when you accept today’s invitation to join Dividend Swing Trader.
Normally membership alone would cost $1,499 per year. That on its own is a heck of a deal. You’ll likely pick up just one trade during your trial period that’ll cover it.
Not to mention the fact you’re getting $297 worth of free bonus reports.
However, you won’t pay anywhere near that much because I’m currently offering a HUGE 45% discount to Dividend Swing Trader.
So, instead of investing $1,499.00, you’ll pay just $799, effectively “locking in” a $700 discount on your first year.
To claim your spot inside Dividend Swing Trader, all you’ve got to do is click the link below …
And don’t forget, you’re always covered by our 60-day money-back guarantee. You have no risk and no obligation whatsoever.
You must act fast, though, as I’m only accepting a limited number of new members inside Dividend Swing Trader.
That’s right—only a limited number can join us right now. We really must keep our membership small, for two very specific reasons:
First, this strategy typically focuses on smaller funds and companies.
If I recommended them to the tens of thousands of readers of Contrarian Outlook, we’d move the market with our buying volume.
Even recommending these under-the-radar plays to our thousands of Contrarian Income Report or Hidden Yields subscribers would move the market.
Second, when we’re trading more often, as we are with Dividend Swing Trader, it’s just much easier to do with a small, nimble group.
So, to quickly recap, you’ll get:
- 12 Months of Full Access to Dividend Swing Trader
- “3 Keys to Quick Double-Digit Dividend Gains”
- Special “Insider Only” Updates
- Exclusive Q&A Service
- BONUS #1 — “How to Identify Market Tops (and Buy Dividends on the Dip)”
- BONUS #2 — “The Secret to Banking 20%+ Per Year with CEFs”
A total value of $1,796.00…
All for just ONE payment of $799.

P.S. As I said above, the latest meltdown is based on a flawed premise. “Safe havens” like utilities and telecoms are set to bounce back in a big way. They’ll rally relentlessly for a multi-week to multi-month period.
And then—only after they are up big—will we hear from pundits that it’s safe to buy bonds and their proxies … After the easy money has been made.
Don’t miss this unique opportunity. Click the button below and get your hands on all 12 of my current Dividend Swing Trades right now.
