In an era of slow and jagged economic growth and rock-bottom bond yields, Roger Conrad will argue that buying and holding dividend-paying stocks is the only way investors can live off their portfolios, as well as being the surest road to wealth-building for savers. Many companies, however, are struggling to keep up with dividend payments. If they do cut payouts, investors will lose both income and principal as share prices head south. Conrad will explore a range of sectors drawn from the extensive coverage universes of his advisories, from Canadian high-income stocks to U.S. utilities and master limited partnerships, highlighting the best and worst.


  • How to design and survive off of your dividend-paying portfolio
  • Where the best dividend-paying sectors and stocks are
  • The risks of holding dividend-paying stocks and how to minimize them
