Stocks Going Ex Dividend the Second Week of December

Here is our latest update on the stock trading technique called ‘Buying Dividends,’ also commonly referred to as ‘Dividend Capture.’ This is the process of buying stocks before the ex dividend date and selling the stock shortly after the ex date at about the same price, yet still being entitled to the dividend. This technique generally works only in bull markets, and can work in flat or choppy markets, but you need to avoid the technique during bear markets.
In order to be entitled to the dividend, you have to buy the stock before the ex-dividend date, and you can’t sell the stock until after the ex date. The actual dividend may not be paid for another few weeks.
WallStreetNewsNetwork.com has compiled a downloadable and sortable list of the stocks going ex dividend in the near future. The list contains many dividend paying companies, lots with market caps over $500 million, and yields over 2%. Here are a few examples showing the stock symbol, the ex-dividend date, the quarterly dividend amount, and annual yield.








Ameren Corporation (AEE) 12/12/2017 0.458 2.81%
Guess?, Inc. (GES) 12/12/2017 0.225 5.64%
Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) 12/12/2017 0.075 1.84%

Exclusive Interview with Billionaire Money Manager Ken Fisher about the 10 Roads to Riches

The following informative interview was provided by Kenneth L. Fisher, founder and chairman of the money management firm Fisher Investments, former long time columnist for Forbes Magazine, billionaire on the Forbes 400 list, and author of numerous books. His latest book is The Ten Roads to Riches: The Ways the Wealthy Got There (And How You Can Too!) Second Edition, which I highly recommend. (It is my favorite of all his books, maybe because it is so different from all the other finance publications. Resources include websites and suggested books. It basically tells you ten ways, with all the steps, to get really rich, including “marrying a billionaire.” Lot’s of insight and lots of humor.)
You may have seen him on TV commercials, or you may have spotted his magazine ads. Fisher is on the Forbes 400 list of richest Americans and the Forbes world billionaires list. According to Investment Advisor magazine, he is one of the 30 most influential people in the investment advisory business over the last 30 years. Fisher is considered to be the largest wealth manager in the United States.
We cover a lot in this interview, including:
  • Whether or not we are still in a bull market
  • The various roads to success and the roads he has taken
  • What it takes to travel down Road #1 – Starting Your Own Business
  • Stock market outlook for the next year
  • Bitcoin & cryptocurrencies
  • Annuities
  • Does age make a difference for starting your own business
  • One piece of advice for someone who is just starting out with their own business
  • And much, much more
Books by Ken Fisher
Here are some other books by Ken Fisher, which are worth checking out:
How to Smell a Rat: The Five Signs of Financial Fraud
(If you want to avoid getting ripped off, you really need to read this book.)

The First San Francisco Bay Area Amazon Bookstore

It was just three days ago that Amazon (AMZN) opened up its first bookstore in the San Francisco area. In case you haven’t heard, Amazon is giving Barnes & Noble (BKS) a (bigger) run for its money, by opening up bricks and mortar establishments, better known as retail stores.
The shop that I visited is located in Walnut Creek, California, a fairly wealthy suburb near San Francisco, just a 40 minute ride on BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit).
In spite of the fact that Amazon is headquartered in the state of Washington, only two Amazon Books stores are located there, yet there are now four in California. The other three are in San Diego, Los Angeles, and San Jose. The rest are located in Oregon, New York, Massachusetts, Illinois, and New Jersey.
The store I visited is located at 1265 Broadway Plaza and is a little hard to find, but if you can find the kate spade shop, it is next door. And if you can find the Tesla (TSLA) store, it is across the street. The first thing I noticed was that the place was packed. Of course, the space wasn’t as big as the two-story building Barnes & Noble had occupied when they were located in Walnut Creek, but they had shut down in January of last year.
I noticed all the usual categories for books that you would find in any decent size bookstore, but there were a few new ones, such as The Books with Over 10,000 Reviews. Included in that section were the following books:
What Happened by Hillary Rodham Clinton
In addition, there were the usual non-book Amazon products for sale, such as the Kindle, the Echo, and other Alexa devices.
There was also a Peet’s Coffee located within the store, for shoppers who were thirsty, hungry, or both.
On display at the very front of the store, was a group of books called Most Wished-For Books. Included was the book, The Rooster Bar by John Grisham.
One book had a whole display all to itself right by the front door: Turtles All the Way Down by John Green.
All in all, it was a fun adventure to see what was being offered and how strong the patronage was. It will be interesting to see where the next shop will open, and how many more Amazon Books shops there will be.

The Stock Motifs that are Up Over 20%

If you are not familiar with motifs, they are similar to Exchange Traded Funds, except they are created by investors. You get to pick and choose which stocks you want to put in the portfolio. You can invest in the motif and others can invest in your motifs also. I created several motifs that are available for anyone to invest in, many of which are up over 20%.
Here are some of the motifs I created last year and the returns to date:
Cuba Stocks +31.5%
Beer Stocks +12.9%
By the way, if you are looking for a bitcoin motif, I just created one a couple days ago and it is already up 1.1%.
