High Dividend Opportunities (HDO), a service on both EWT and Seeking Alpha hosted by Rida Morwa, has achieved a major milestone.The service, which is aimed at income investors and retirees, has passed $2 million in annual revenue in Seeking Alpha's Marketplace. HDO is the first service to achieve this milestone in SA’s Marketplace, which has more than 180 services. HDO was also the first Marketplace service to reach $1 million in annual revenue, an achievement announced in May 2019. It has attracted more than 4,400 members since its launch there in January 2016, and in February 2021 launched on ElliottWaveTrader.
Grow Your Income Faster Than InflationGood afternoon EWT, one of the issues we have been discussing at HDO are the real risks of rising inflation and its devastating effects for those who cannot offset inflation with higher paychecks, such as retirees, or those near retirement. These risks can also be devastating, even if you are employed and saving towards building your nest egg. We published an article to members last week highlighting some areas that we are focussing on to hedge against inflation risk. Below is a portion of that article.
Dear EWT Members,I am proud to have launched access to High Dividend Opportunities on Elliott Wave Trader. Our community of income investors and retirees has continued to grow rapidly! I am excited about the prospects for the year 2021 and beyond!Since October 2020, value stocks (and value dividend stocks) have been soaring. We have been beating the SP 500 index by several times since.A stellar record in targeting high-dividend stocks trading at cheap valuations, allowing our members to lock in higher yields at low prices for the long term.Cheap dividend stocks are the best place to be in the current market environment, for income and upside.
Good morning EWT, we are making progress on preparing for our official launch of HDO which will occur next week! Current EWT members who sign-up the first week will get a discount. Additionally, next week StockWaves will release their first report of our previously announced collaboration. Below is a report that I co-wrote with Seeking Alpha contributor Long Player on one of my favorite mid-stream companies. I Am Buying the Dip: Enterprise Products PartnersCo-produced with Long Player* Note that EPD issues a K-1 tax form.Enterprise Products Partners, LP (EPD) has long been one of the safest of midstream companies to invest in. The stock has been seeing a strong recovery since the 2020 crash. The current yield is at 8.4%.
Patience is perhaps one of the most underrated virtues of investing. It is also perhaps one of the most important. Before buying, it is important to take the time to do your due diligence. Make sure you understand the company, the upside, and the risks.Then, even after you make the decision to establish a position, it is best to exercise patience. Typically, we recommend investing up to 2-3% of your portfolio in any single stock. We do not recommend buying a 3% position in a single buy.Waves of the Ocean Method - Our Preferred MethodThis method involves breaking up your buying into several waves or tranches.
One frequent question I get is some variation of "if you had to pick one stock...." or "if you have $X and which 3 stocks would you buy?" My answer is that I wouldn't buy just one or split some amount of money among just a handful of stocks. Investors are often tempted to load up on "the best" stocks. If you have a portfolio of several dozen stocks, odds are that a few of them are going to underperform. Some will even be outright losers. The more stocks you pick, the more likely it is that at least one of those picks is going to perform poorly.
We are huge fans of utilizing fixed-income investments to build the base of an income portfolio. Fixed-income includes preferred shares, bonds/baby bonds, and bond funds.The concept of fixed-income is a little bit different than you might be used to if you have only been investing in common stocks. A fixed-income investment is one that has a set principal that is owed to the investor, and until that principal is paid back, the investor gets a coupon payment.While capital gains are definitely possible in fixed-income investments, the primary goal of these investments is to provide steady and stable income.Preferred SharesPreferred equity is one of our favorite forms of fixed-income because they are easily accessible to retail investors.
So you want to build an income portfolio, where do you start? Let's take a look at the anatomy of The Income Method.Build A FoundationWhat is the most important part of your house? Well, you might not think about it very frequently, but without a good foundation, your house is not going to be useful for very long. Foundations provide stability and rigidity to the entire home.We recommend a foundation of 30-50% fixed-income investments, including preferred shares, bonds, baby bonds, and bond funds. These picks are higher up the corporate structure so their dividends/interest payments are much safer than common equity dividends.
Welcome to High Dividend Opportunities, aka HDO. For my entire investing career, I have been attracted to stocks that pay dividends. If a company that I own a part of is doing well and is profitable, I want to be paid!Over the decades, the market has gone through phases where dividend stocks were out of favor, and phases when they were in favor. Yet in every environment, the power of having significant cash-flow in a portfolio is undeniable. Cash is always king.Looking even further back into history, the most valuable of assets have been those that in turn generate more money or wealth.

Here is an End of the Year THANK YOU, Avi and EWT staff! I joined EWT this year in April, and was really despondent in how my retirement plans and trading account had been performing. I have been trading commodities and stocks for 30 years, and could never keep what I would make in the market. Never. Always gave it all back, and then some. The desire of my heart was to trade for a living, and finally, after 30 years, I can see this as a possibility! I switched to a self-directed 401K at work, and started trading a personal account with you all in April. My accounts are up 320% since April thanks to you! Until then, I was looking at possibly not being able to retire for a long time, but not now. I never knew when to get out of a position. I was always wrong. If I hung on it went down. If I closed out the position, it went up. I was ALWAYS wrong...so frustrated. I owe my success all to you, Avi, and EWT, and the EWT members. SO from the bottom of my heart...THANKS so much. I really appreciate you all!! I have tears of happiness because of you all. HAPPY NEW YEAR, and happy trading in 2021. I am really looking forward to it, for once!

The relief of EWT philosophy on investing has been such a gift (besides being extremely profitable) that I have to say this is the most enjoyable service offered anywhere on the internet and probably the best investment I have ever made. Thanks Avi.
