About

UKDividendStocks.com exists to help sensible investors who want to invest in high-quality dividend stocks for long-term income and growth.

How this site can help

Dividend investors have three main tasks:

  1. Own quality dividend stocks
  2. Own them at attractive valuations
  3. Maintain a concentrated yet diverse portfolio

This site helps investors by giving them the knowledge and tools to:

  1. Identify quality dividend stocks
  2. Value them, and
  3. Maintain a concentrated yet diverse portfolio

These resources are shared through three main channels:

  1. A blog for those who want reviews of dividend stocks, market valuations, investment strategy insights and more.
  2. Investing courses for investors who want to learn how to invest in quality dividend stocks in a structured format at their own pace.
  3. Membership for investors who want to learn by following along with a model portfolio and having full access to all of the tools used to manage that portfolio (e.g. spreadsheets, stock screen etc).

A brief history of the site

By John Kingham

From 2008 to 2021 I ran a reasonably well-known website called UKValueInvestor.com.

It started out as a personal blog about my journey as an investor and morphed, in 2011, into a paid subscription service for UK investors who were looking for relatively defensive but attractively valued dividend stocks.

I enjoyed running the site but eventually, I realised two things:

  1. Most people would call me a dividend investor rather than a value investor (although valuing companies is still at the heart of my approach)
  2. The paid service was a monthly PDF newsletter and in today's world of YouTube, podcasts and apps, this seemed woefully outdated.

So I launched UKDividendStocks.com in 2021 to fix both problems.

The new name more clearly says what the site is about and it's built on a technology platform that enables the creation of courses, videos and podcasts much more easily. In other words, it should be more useful to the modern investor.

A bit about me

My professional background is in computer programming and software analysis, primarily in the insurance industry.

In 2011 I left that line of work to become a full-time investor and investment newsletter writer.

In 2016 my book, The Defensive Value Investor, was published by Harriman House.

In 2017 I was included in Harriman's New Book of Investing Rules (subtitled "the do's and don'ts of the world's best investors", although even I would admit it's a bit of a stretch to say I'm one of the world's best investors).

I've also written regularly for Master Investor Magazine and The Property Chronicle.

How this site is financed

Running this site is more than a full-time job so funding has to come from somewhere. There are three primary sources of income:

  1. Membership: This is a subscription service that gives members full access to a model portfolio, along with detailed buy and sell reviews plus, all of the tools used to manage the portfolio and much more.
  2. Courses: Most courses will be free but some may be paid. These will be very detailed courses that go significantly beyond what's possible with a book.
  3. Affiliate links: In some cases, links to external sites may be affiliate links. If you pay for a product or service on the linked-to site then  UKDividendStocks.com may receive a commission, although it won't change the amount you pay.
  4. Adverts: The site may carry adverts from quality providers of relevant products or services. Junk adverts are not allowed.

Take the next step:

  1. Read the blog where you'll find company reviews, lessons on strategy, market valuations and more.
  2. Take a course and learn how to invest in high-quality dividend stocks at your own pace.
  3. Become a Member and follow along with the Model Portfolio to see a sensible dividend growth strategy being applied in the real world in real-time.
