The stock market just had its best July in the past 83 years, with the S&P 500 Index rebounding more than 10% after a punishing first half of 2022. Even with the big July rally, the S&P 500 is still down 13% for the year.
There’s no doubt that 2022 has had its share of stock market volatility, but subscribers to Forbes Dividend Investor aren’t complaining because they’re looking at solid gains and positive returns from their portfolios while the overall market remains mired in a messy bear market.
Here are just a few of the stocks currently held in the Forbes Dividend Investor portfolio and the total return since the time of their recommendation:
A well-known tax-preparation firm that offered a 4.5% dividend yield when it was recommended has produced a total return of 74% since January 7, 2022.
The largest producer of chicken and pork has been a big beneficiary of higher inflation and is up 44% since its addition in January 2021.
An Ohio company that makes plastic, paper containers and packaging provides us with a yield above 5% and has returned 27% since it was added to the FDI portfolio less than three months ago on May 12.
Winning With Dividends
Whether the next bull market is already underway or still months down the road, you cannot lose when you invest in fundamentally sound companies with a history of paying out generous and rising dividends.
Your most reliable source of income could be from dividends paid by durable companies with ample cashflow and low levels of debt to keep paying higher dividends. As dividends grow, your yields will mushroom over time on the stocks you buy at temporarily depressed prices.
This is the logic that made Warren Buffett the world’s richest investor. Even if you’re not tight with Warren, you can get a ready, reliable source of secure, superior dividend-paying companies every week when you subscribe to Forbes Dividend Investor.
My name is John Dobosz. As a TV viewer, you might have seen my work on CNN Financial News or on Bloomberg TV. Since 2001, I've used my expertise to help Forbes’ readers amass wealth, beginning with Forbes Stock of the Week and Forbes Premium Income Report.
In 2012, I was hand–picked by Steve Forbes to launch Forbes Dividend Investor, and over the past decade we have put together an enviable track record of delivering superior dividend yields and higher total returns compared to dividend-oriented ETFs and mutual funds.
Quite simply, Forbes Dividend Investorfinds the best undervalued, high-yielding dividend-paying stocks with the potential of putting real, regular income in your hands, month after month.
Are These Perhaps the Best Dividend Recommendations Ever?
At Forbes Dividend Investor, we only look for companies that have big yields … where dividends continue to go up over time … that have low levels of debt … that have a strong free cash flow … where the valuations are cheaper than they have been over the past five years.
Our results speak for themselves:
Since we started Forbes Dividend Investor in 2012, our recommendations are up 342%
In 2020, the Forbes Dividend Investor model portfolio beat the S&P 500 Index and beat 25 of the biggest ETFs and mutual funds
Our portfolio’s total return performance over the past 3-, 5- and 7-year periods has consistently placed our model portfolio among the top decile of dividend-oriented ETFs and mutual funds
In 2021 the Forbes Dividend Investor model portfolio produced a total return of 25.5%
The current yield on the portfolio is 4.6%
The Forbes Dividend Investor portfolio has proven its mettle when markets turn volatile and seemingly unpredictable—just as they are now. In fact, compared to the top dividend-focused ETFs and mutual funds, the Forbes Dividend Investor portfolio has the highest total return over the past two, three, and four years! This is a period of time that has included a stock market crash and a huge recovery.
How does all this outstanding investment performance translate into a better bottom line for you?
Imagine placing $5,000 into these highly profitable recent closeouts:
Do we get it right all the time? No, of course not. No investment service comes up with winners on every recommendation.
But Forbes Dividend Investor has safeguards in place to limit our losses. If we see a recommended company fail to meet our strict risk-control standards, we'll issue a sell order fast and find a better company for you. You have our word.
There Are Many Ways to Make Money with Forbes Dividend Investor
One of the great things about Forbes Dividend Investor is that our recommendations let you make money in ANY type of market.
Our members make money in bull markets, bear markets, sideways markets. They make money during corrections, recessions, downturns and rising inflation. Through any kind of turbulence or market exuberance, Forbes Dividend Investor guides you to robust dividend-paying investments.
Some people also use Forbes Dividend Investor to get income checks every month. It's really a simple, but effective "laddering" strategy.

Or—you could take your dividend profits, reinvest them in the company, and reap an even higher payday.
