Young investors and Dividend Machines - What happens in the next crash - Will it be different this time?

This blog is not just for retirees.   Young people should take notice.  As I continue to employ this strategy with strict discipline; as I continue to measure performance, I know that young investors should allocate at least fifty percent of their portfolios to this type of strategy. 

TheMoneyMadam's Dividend Machine Strategy is simple, reproducible and scalable.

Sure the market will crash again.  The market is like earthquakes (you can tell I am from San Francisco) the big one is just around the corner but it will never be the last one. You can never predict when.  You are on a fool's errand if you try to time either the market or earthquakes.

Dividend stocks are the best way to endure a market crash.  The table below shows how well the 2011 Dividend Machine model portfolio has performed but we have had an up market since I started this blog.

I, however, have been investing in Dividend Stocks and advising my clients to invest in Dividend stocks through the following bears: 1987, 1992, 1994, 2001, 2008-2009, I know of what I speak and Dividend Machines are not fool proof but they provide steady and even increasing income during times of major market disruptions.  

My annual Dividend Machine Portfolios are on line so you can monitor them when the next market crash occurs.

We will find out if it is different this time.
