Using this simple investing strategy, I'm earning over $1,380 a month in dividends...
The $1,382 Per Month Income Strategy
By Amy Calistri
It started out as an experiment. It wound up being one of the
greatest investment discoveries we've ever found.
Less than five years ago, StreetAuthority co-founder Paul Tracy approached me with
an idea. He wanted me to build a portfolio of dividend stocks that would
pay out more than 30 dividend checks a month -- one for every day of the
year. In order to show he was serious, he gave me $200,000 and a
dedicated brokerage account to get started.
I must admit, I was a little skeptical at first. The idea seemed too
good to be true. But less than five years, more than 1,574 dividends and over $65,000 worth
of dividend income later, the results have been far better than anyone could have

Priceline shares have gained 650% since 2010. Before that it was part of this
undiscovered market filled with what we're calling "hidden gems." And
they've generated 7 times more triple-digit gains than mainstream stocks
over the past year alone. Click here to find out what this mysterious market is and how to pinpoint the next big winners.
Since I started my portfolio back in December 2009, my initial $200,000
investment has grown to more than $310,000, giving me a total return of
more than 55% in less than five years. The total dividends I've received
amount to more than $65,000.
The Daily Paycheck Strategy Has Helped Me Pocket Over $65,000 In Dividends
Even better, during the past year, I've earned nearly $17,000 in dividends,
amounting to $1,382 a month.
I call this method of investing
the "Daily Paycheck" strategy. Simply put,
by creating a portfolio of high-yielding dividend stocks that pay
distributions regularly and have a history of raising their payouts,
I've successfully built an income machine that pays me each and every
The best part is you can do the same.
And you don't need $200,000 either. My results are fully scalable. So
whether you have $1,000,000 to invest or $10,000, you can still earn a
steady income stream using this strategy.
Now, admittedly, there's another step to my strategy that has helped me
accelerate my income stream these past few years, and I would be doing
you a disservice if I didn't share it with you.
See, while it's tempting to take the cash that my portfolio is
generating (who wouldn't want an extra $1,382 per month in the bank),
I've found I can earn even more money by simply reinvesting my
dividends. By using my dividends to purchase more shares, compounding
takes over. As a result, my next payment will be larger, which then buys
more shares, and so on.
Consider two income investors, both of whom start a Daily Paycheck
portfolio with just $20,000. One of those investors chooses to take the
cash and spend it as he pleases. The other decides he wants to reinvest
Assuming they both earn a 7% yield, the chart below shows you the
difference compounding can make. After 10 years the investor who
reinvested his dividends is generating $2,754 in annual income -- nearly
double the amount earned with no reinvestment.
And if the holdings happened to boost their dividends by just 5%
annually -- something even giant blue chip AT&T (NYSE: T) has been able
to beat -- the portfolio earns 278.5% more income when compared to the
investor who didn't reinvest. In fact, the investor who reinvests could
be generating an effective yield of 26.5% based on his initial $20,000
If you have even a little bit more time on your investment horizon (or
more money to invest, or additional dollars to invest each year), then
the numbers only get better. And keep in mind that these are
conservative estimates. They don't include one penny of capital
Of course, I understand if you want your money now and you choose not to
reinvest your dividends.
But by not reinvesting your dividends, you will sacrifice the benefit of
compound growth. Even so, the average yield on my portfolio is still
6.0% -- more than three times the average yield of the S&P 500 -- and
many times more than the average savings account...
Before I started my premium advisory,
The Daily Paycheck, I was anxious about
generating a portfolio that could support me once I retired. I'm no
longer anxious. Like my Daily Paycheck portfolio, my personal portfolio is
generating more and more income every month. And I know that when
retirement comes, I can just flick off the dividend reinvestment switch
and start living off the income.
That's the power of my Daily Paycheck strategy, and it's something I
want every investor to experience.
Note: Now that you know the idea behind my newsletter, I bet you are
wondering how to build your own Daily Paycheck portfolio. You're not the only one. That's why I was recently invited to speak in front of a live audience at St. Edward's University to present exactly how my Daily Paycheck Strategy works, and how I'm using it to earn $1,382 per month.
