The Simple (and Safe) Way to
15%+ Returns Every Year
From Dividend Stocks
While most people are chasing big dividend payers right now, a small group of “hidden yield” stocks are quietly handing smart investors growing income streams PLUS annual returns of 15%, 17%, 21% or more.
So if you want to double your money every five years while tripling your retirement income, here are the 7 investments to buy right away …
If you’re trying to figure out which way this market is going to swing next …
If you’re worried the S&P 500’s latest crash might go deeper still …
Or if you’re worried that Jay Powell’s attempts to contain inflation will cause more harm than good …
Then I have good news: I recently uncovered seven “hidden yield” investments that are poised to keep soaring while dishing out solid income right away.
Like a real estate insurer that just boosted its dividend by a whopping 43%. It has plenty of room to easily deliver a payout hike that big again this year without breaking a sweat!
And another company that has raised its dividend by an astounding 409% over the past dozen years …
Plus, a little-known steel maker that’s profiting from inflation. It just handed its investors a 27% payout raise and there’s much more to come!
Together, these seven dividend-paying stocks could almost serve as a standalone portfolio – one that you can look to for steady payments … growing retirement income … and solid capital gains year in and year out.
But before I get deeper into the specifics of each of these companies, I want to explain why …
These Particular Stocks Could
Grow Your Money 15% a Year FOREVER …
Doubling Your Portfolio Every 5 Years
You probably already know that dividends are responsible for a very large chunk of the stock market’s historical returns.
In fact, dividends have accounted for more than 40% of the gains produced by US shares since the 1930s.
But it actually goes much deeper than that.
My research indicates a certain group of dividend stocks can give you A LOT more than steady payments that supplement your price gains.
I’ve discovered a relationship between dividends and price gains that holds the key to 15%+ returns per year from very conservative investments – enough to double your portfolio in 5 years, and it could provide 3 TIMES MORE INCOME THAN MOST RETIREMENT EXPERTS SAY YOU NEED.
See, everyone wants dividend stocks with good current yields.
It’s easy to scan a newspaper or financial website and pick out the stocks that are paying 3%, 4%, 8% or whatever number you might consider “good.”
Plus it provides instant gratification.
Yet that’s NOT the right way to pick dividend stocks.
You have to do more work to figure out if those yields are actually supported by the company’s cash flow, earnings power, long-term prospects and other signs of dividend, and business health.
You have to sift through the same company’s history to determine how long it’s been paying those dividends …
How consistently it’s been paying those dividends …
And especially if it’s been regularly INCREASING its dividend payments.
In Short, You Need to Understand This Simple Fact to
Make SERIOUS Money from Dividend Stocks …
In my opinion, selecting companies with long histories of dividend hikes IS the safest and most reliable way to get rich investing in stocks.
But it might not be for the reason you think.
Yes, every time a company raises its dividend, you start earning even more money from your original investment.
For example, $30 in annual dividends equals a 3% return on your original $1,000 investment.
Later, if the dividends go up to $40 a year, you are effectively earning 4% on your original $1,000 investment.
And if the trend continues over time, you could easily end up earning 10% or even 20% a year just from rising dividends … because your original amount of invested money never changes!
This explains why so many investors are actually collecting “hidden yields” – regular payments that are MANY TIMES MORE than the dividend numbers you see reported by major media outlets.
Better yet …
The Stock Market Quickly Covers Up These “Hidden Yields”
Handing You One Potential Windfall After Another!
For example, if a stock pays a 3% current yield and then hikes its payout by 10%, investors will typically see the new 3.3% yield and buy more shares.
In the process, they’ll drive the price up and push the yield back down towards 3% again.
Let me show you how this works in the real world with a well-known income stock like Verizon (VZ).
Verizon typically pays about 4% to 5% a year, so as the firm has been growing its dividend every year, investors have been bidding the stock up to keep its yield in line with that level.
You can see this very clearly in this chart of Verizon’s stock. The purple line shows the stock’s price over the last 15 years. The orange line shows the stock’s dividend going up each of those years.
As the chart shows, despite some ups and downs, Verizon’s stock rose as fast as the company’s dividend payments.
Of course, I am NOT saying Verizon is a stock you should buy right now.
After all, it’s only growing its payout about 2% annually. That’s just not enough to drive any more meaningful price appreciation, particularly as rising rates drive up Verizon’s borrowing costs.
The important thing here is that although investors tend to fixate on stocks’ current yields – which are widely published and available – meaningful dividend growth can be a valuable source of “hidden yields.”
Let’s look at two more popular dividend stocks—AbbVie (ABBV) and Caterpillar (CAT)—to see the same thing in action. Both of these stocks have had nearly constant yields over the last 10 years.
Because their price returns have also closely tracked their dividend growth.
As you can see:
AbbVie increased its dividends 252% and its stock rose 334% …
And CAT’s dividends jumped an impressive 142%, while the company’s shares jumped 114%!
So the very best dividend stocks almost never show high yields because their prices keep rising in line with the increasing payments!
Most people never realize any of this.
But those of us who DO stand to profit handsomely and almost automatically!
It’s a simple three-step process:
Step 1. You invest a set amount of money into one of these “hidden yield” stocks and immediately start getting regular returns on the order of 3%, 4% or maybe more.
Step 2. Over time, your dividend payments go up, so you’re eventually earning 8%, 9% or 10% a year on your original investment.
Step 3. As your income is rising, other investors are also bidding up the price of your shares to keep pace with the increasing yields.
This combination of rising dividends and capital appreciation is what gives you the potential to earn 15% or more, on average, with almost no active trading at all.
So with “hidden yield” stocks, you just get into the right investments and let a proven system take your wealth higher and higher without much fuss at all. However …
If You Want THE BEST POSSIBLE RETURNS,
Look for One More Thing to Add Extra
Upside to Your Dividend Stocks!
I imagine you’d be pretty darn happy to watch your portfolio grow roughly 15% every year … doubling in value every five years … and creating bigger and bigger potential income streams along the way.
And as I’ve just explained, picking the right “hidden yield” stocks can do that without exposing you to outsized risks or can’t-sleep-at-night worries.
But what I’ve found is that adding in one additional criteria can point you to even bigger, faster upside from dividend stocks.
Whenever a company buys back its own stock, it is basically improving every single “per share” metric that investors watch – earnings … free cash flow … book value … etc.
After all, if a company reduces the number of its shares by 50%, its earnings per share will automatically DOUBLE without any actual increase in profits.
I probably don’t need to tell you what should happen next …
Investors will quickly bid up the stock’s price to bring it back in line with the value it was trading at before.
Indeed, my research shows that simply investing in the right stocks that are reducing their share counts can help you beat the broad market’s performance.
Best of all, analysts expect record buybacks this year, as companies invest money they squirreled away during the pandemic into their own stocks.
But even now, there are plenty of firms buying back shares, and getting a nice upside kick in return.
You can see this by looking at the shares of Nike (NKE), which has taken an impressive 14% of its stock off the market in the last five years, helping drive a 295% gain in the share price!
And that’s just one example. By targeting cash-rich companies that either continue to buy back shares now or have a long record of doing so (even if they’re holding off till the pandemic finally ends), you can set yourself up for HUGE price gains.
And you’ll do even better if you …
Combine “Hidden Yield” Stocks With
Buyback Programs—the Gains Can Be Truly Explosive!
For example, in September 2015, I recommended insurer Assurant (AIZ) because it was quickly growing its dividend payments and management was also buying back shares aggressively.
- Assurant had reduced its outstanding shares by an amazing 37% in the preceding five years and had plans in place to keep up those fast repurchases, thanks to a generous boost in the cash it had set aside to buy back shares.
- Plus, the stock was still yielding around 2.6%, even after it had just boosted the payout a massive 67%!
All those things told me the stock could take off as the company continued growing its dividends and buying back more shares.
Sure enough, it played out just that way.
Assurant reduced its share count by 9.8% over the next year. The market quickly responded as that happened and the stock delivered a 19% total return over the year.
That’s a 19% return in a single year from a relatively boring (at the time!) insurance company.
From there, shares continued going up – producing a 91% total return in a little more than four years, until we sold Assurant in December 2019. Over our total holding period, Assurant grew its dividend another 26%, to boot!
Dividends and Buybacks Ignite AIZ
Of course not all of my recommendations work out exactly like this one … some better, some worse… but this example shows that there’s no need to invest in things you don’t understand … or guess about how some new product rollout or business development is unfolding.
If you find companies that are consistently raising their dividends at solid rates PLUS consistently buying back their own shares, you have the recipe for annual total returns of 15% or more.
That’s WAY better than what you can expect from a broad stock market mutual fund or ETF …
And it’s far more than what you’d get from most bonds or other fixed-income investments right now, even with recent rate hikes …
And it’s TEN TIMES higher than the very best certificates of deposit available at the moment.
In fact, since most experts recommend withdrawing 4% of your nest egg each year during retirement, it means your portfolio could actually be growing three times faster than you’d be withdrawing money.
Put another way, simply investing in the right “hidden yield” stocks at the right time could triple the amount of money you have to enjoy in your golden years.
Best of all, it can do so safely!
So Here Are the 7 Stocks to Buy Right Now
For Massive Income Streams and 100%+ Gains …
I’ve scoured thousands of stocks out there right now, looking for the very best companies that have both rising dividends and strong buyback programs in place … the kind of stocks that could easily spin off annual total returns of 15%, 17%, even 25% or more … doubling your money in very short order.
Right now, at this very moment, there are seven in particular that I think you should consider buying.
They stand to do well no matter what the broader market does … regardless of what happens in Washington … and irrespective of interest-rate trends.
Here’s why I’m so bullish on these stocks, even in these uncertain times …
“Hidden Yield” Stock #1: A “Strong as Steel” Dividend That Just Popped 27% (and That’s Just the Start)
Our first pick profits from higher inflation because it sells materials—steel, aluminum and copper to be specific—and its selling prices have soared.
But this company goes one better and customizes alloys to command fat profit margins. For example, its forming services change metal to a customer’s specified shapes while its machining can produce a custom component or part.
Pick No. 1 is also an acquisition machine, having purchased 71 companies since it started up in 1994. It looks for high-quality businesses that expand their product lines, end markets and geographic reach.
The result? This company is the dominant player in its industry. By sales, it’s the leader, and its profits—again, thanks to its focus on high-value solutions—dominate those of its peers:
Pick No. 1 Owns Its Fragmented Market
Profits are popping. The specialty metal peddler came out of 2021 flying, posting $25.23 earnings-per-share (EPS) last year:
Pick No. 1’s EPS Moonshot
That translated into a whopping 27% dividend hike last year. The accelerating dividend will likely call Wall Street’s attention to this bargain stock sooner rather than later.
Pick No. 1’s Accelerating Dividend
Management sees a lot of opportunities as it continues to consolidate the fragmented metals market. Let’s buy in and profit from their acquisition (and operational) savvy.
“Hidden Yield” Stock #2: A Payout Growth Powered by the “New Cold War”
Pick No. 2 is a dividend stock that, on the surface, never appears to pay much.
On January 1, 2010, the company paid 1.7%.
Fast forward 12.5 years later to today and the company yields… 1.8%.
This may sound unremarkable to “first-level” income investors. (More on them in a moment.) The lack of sizzle is their loss and our future gain.
While they were sleeping downstairs, they were missing the action in the payout penthouse. Dividend growth (orange line in the chart below) of 409% powered price growth (purple line) of… wait for it… 401%.
Pick No. 2’s “Dividend Magnet” Pulls Its Price Higher
Just last year, the company delivered its most generous dividend increase in some time—a 20% hike. And the payout party isn’t over yet. Here’s why.
We contrarians demand a “next-level” edge. (Renowned value investor Howard Marks, chief of Oaktree Capital Group with $120 billion under management, introduced the second-level concept in his excellent book The Most Important Thing: Uncommon Sense for the Thoughtful Investor.)
In next-level vernacular:
- First-level investors see Pick No. 2’s 1.8% current yield. They yawn.
- Second-level dividend detectives appreciate the firm’s history of payout growth. They ponder a long-term play.
We take the elevator up one more floor. At this third level, we look for hidden catalysts that will spark near-term gains.
With this company we have plenty of bullish tinder with a rising payout plus buybacks.
You see, Pick No. 2 is one of the world’s largest defense contractors with a diverse portfolio of products for air, land, sea and even space applications.
When the Department of Defense budget was announced for fiscal year 2022, with its 1.5% increase, the now-CEO was optimistic about growth opportunities for his firm, thanks specifically to the “return to peer competition and operations in increasingly contested environments.”
Translation: This company makes what the US needs to compete with emerging challenges on the global battlefield.
Pick No. 2 should receive more ink in the months ahead as a 2%+ increase in DoD spending is likely for 2023, and more investors begin to look for plays on geopolitical tensions.
“Hidden Yield” Stock #3: A “Cash Cow” Dividend That Could Easily Double Tomorrow
Insurance is a great business. The smartest insurance companies generate tremendous amounts of free cash. (Which they can then shower upon us shareholders in the form of dividend growth and the higher share prices it brings.)
Insurers collect payments up front from their customers but may not have to pay them out in claims for a long time, if ever. The companies then invest that money—called the “float”—and pocket the income they earn.
Pick No. 3 has a first-class ticket on this gravy train and recently raised its dividend by another 43%. Over the last three years, this payout has soared from under a penny to $0.20 per share!
Soaring Payout, Cheap Stock
Pick No. 3’s dividend magnet should exert a positive pull on its stock price in the months and years ahead, especially with future raises baked in: its cash payout ratio is a modest 18% of free cash flow!
For a capital-efficient company like this, a cash payout ratio below 50% is generally fine. This means the firm could double its payout overnight (to 7.4%) if it really wanted to stir up its stock price—and could do so without breaking a cash-flow sweat.
Rising float income will further help the insurer’s free cash flow (FCF), which has boomed over the past decade:
Business Is Booming
Finally, “first-level” investors have totally overlooked this one—until more payout hikes inevitably grab their attention! Until then, we can buy at 8-times free cash flow. Dirt cheap.

Behind the 8-Ball: Eight Popular Dividends Set for a Cut
To gauge dividend health, you can’t simply look in the rearview mirror. Many “surprise” payout cuts are issued from companies with long streaks of paying — or even raising — their dividends.
Instead, it’s important to consider leading indicators of dividend health like cash flow, earnings growth and payout ratios.
Of course, it’s time consuming to give each public company a dividend health checkup – so I’ve done the work for you in this special report.
Using a combination of seven fundamental factors, I have identified eight companies that are likely to cut their dividends over the next 12 months.
Investors caught holding these stocks through dividend disappointments will likely suffer losses of at least 20%, and perhaps as high as 50%.
Therefore, if you own any of these eight paper tigers, you’ll want to sell them immediately.

Shareholder Yield: How to Identify
Double-Digit Returns from Buybacks
As we discussed, when done right, share buybacks can light a fire under stock returns.
They also act like a magnifying glass on dividend payments because they cut the number of shares outstanding, leaving fewer for the company to pay out on.
But many companies are going too far, paying out more in buybacks than they’re bringing in through free cash flows.
Worse, many buy back their stock willy-nilly, without making sure it’s a good value first. There’s no better way to destroy shareholder value than by repurchasing overpriced stock.
This report reveals how to make sure the companies you invest in are buying back shares the right way – not simply burning up cash that would be better used as dividends or to develop new products.

Your Absolute Safety Is ALWAYS My Number One Priority
I originally earned a degree in engineering from Cornell University. And when I first graduated, I put my knowledge to good use designing systems for Fortune 500 companies to streamline their operations and predict upcoming business risks.
Of course, while I was doing that – and earning a great living – I had left my investment portfolio in someone else’s hands.
I kept contributing more money, but almost every time I checked my account … the balance was going DOWN!
I hope you’ve never experienced it personally, but you can at least imagine the sickening feeling of watching your money just disappear because of some idiot’s decisions.
One day I just woke up and decided to take control of things again.
After all, I specialized in making things safer and more efficient, right?
So I took everything I knew as an engineer and applied it to my investments, even designing my own system that identified the best companies to buy at any given time.
I’m proud to say that I not only got back everything that lousy stock broker lost me, but I turned a meager $2,000 into $154,000 in less than 48 months!
Man, it felt so good. Regaining control. Knowing exactly what I was investing in and why. Watching my balance GROWING AGAIN.
Needless to say, I was hooked. More than that, I knew I could start helping other people experience the same level of control.
That’s how I went from working for Fortune 500 companies to working for investors like YOU.
Today I’m helping individual investors like you generate more income – and get bigger overall gains – while staying as safe as possible.
And I put that care and concern into every issue of Hidden Yields.
