The Investment Newsletter for Defensive Dividend Investors

This newsletter will help you gain the knowledge and confidence you need to invest in high-yield shares for long-term income and growth.


Dear fellow investor,

Like most investors, I spent many years as an inexperienced investor making one mistake after another. Fortunately, I made a point of understanding and writing down the root cause of each mistake so that I wouldn't make the same mistake twice. 

Over a period of more than ten years, I built a methodical step-by-step system for analysing, valuing and managing a portfolio of high-quality companies offering high dividend yields.

I wanted to share this investment system with other dividend investors to help them avoid those early years of toil and tears, so in 2011 I launched this monthly investment newsletter.

Since then, more than 1,000 investors have used this newsletter to help them gain the knowledge and confidence they need to invest in high-yield shares.

The newsletter is centred around the UK Dividend Stocks Portfolio, which is a model portfolio that holds exactly the same 20 to 25 quality dividend stocks as my real-world portfolio (all of which are members of the FTSE All-Share index).

Each issue includes clearly written reviews of any buy or sell decisions as well as detailed analyses of any interim or annual results for each holding. They also include my FTSE All-Share stock screen (ranking almost 200 stocks), my target position size for each holding, plus regular updates on where we are in the stock market cycle.

As well as the latest issue, you'll have access to the full newsletter archive going all the way back to 2011.

And when you feel confident enough to analyse companies yourself, you can use the same checklists and spreadsheets as I do.

Please take a look at the sample issue and "Owner's Manual" below to find out more.

Yours sincerely,

John Kingham

P.S. You'll also get a free copy of my book, The Defensive Value Investor.
