The UK Dividend Stocks Newsletter

“I have a variety of investment outlooks and you cover the solid long-term dividend paying approach perfectly." - Tim C.


Dear fellow investor,

Since 2011, I've published a monthly newsletter for investors who are looking to invest in high-quality UK dividend stocks.

Each issue follows the progress of the UK Dividend Stocks Portfolio, which is effectively a virtual version of my real-world portfolio.

The portfolio contains 20 to 30 high quality UK dividend growth stocks with the goal of outperforming the FTSE All-Share, in terms of both dividend yield and capital gains, over multiple decades. 

To give you a flavour of what the portfolio typically holds, in November 2021 the portfolio held 28 companies, including Unilever, Legal & General, British American Tobacco and Domino's Pizza Group.

To keep the newsletter brief and focused, it covers one portfolio, managed using one "quality dividend" investment strategy and includes one stock screen.

As a subscriber, you can:

  • Read purchase reviews for each holding
  • See my fair value and good value estimates for each holding
  • See my target position size for each holding
  • Read summaries of recent trading updates
  • Stay up to date with the latest interim and annual results
  • See clear explanation of trim or top-up decisions
  • Get detailed reviews of each buy or sell decision
  • Understand the UK market's current valuation level
  • Search for investment ideas outside the portfolio using the newsletter's stock screen

Here's what you'll get when you subscribe:

  • Monthly issues of the newsletter, available online and sent to you by email in the first week of each month
  • A complete newsletter archive going back to 2011
  • A brief weekly email, keeping you up to date with the latest portfolio news
  • Priority support by email
  • All the spreadsheets, checklists and templates I use to analyse companies and manage the portfolio 

Helping you become a better investor

The goal of this newsletter is to educate as well as inform, so as a subscriber you can request a FREE copy of my book, The Defensive Value Investor. The book is slightly out of date, but the basics are the same and this book will give you a detailed overview of my approach to investing.

Also, the number of subscribers is strictly limited to 300.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Yours sincerely,

John Kingham

Founder & Editor, UKDividendStocks.com

Frequently Asked Questions

When is the newsletter published?

I write the newsletter and update it onto the website during the month, so you’ll be able to see it in-progress by logging in. I’ll also send you a PDF version of the newsletter as soon as it’s finished, which is during the first week of each month.

I’ll also send you a weekly email every Friday. This will contain news of any recent trading updates or interim and annual reviews, so you can read these in bite-sized pieces and in a more timely fashion.

Do you back your investment research with your own money?

Yes. The vast majority of my family’s retirement savings are invested in exactly the same companies as the model portfolio with roughly the same position sizes.

Will the subscription price be increased over time?

No. Your subscription will always renew at the original price.

How do I renew?

Your subscription will renew automatically until cancelled. 

How do I cancel and get a refund?

You can cancel at any time either through the website or by getting in touch

There are no refunds, so please read the sample newsletters before subscribing.
