Today, I will compare and contrast dividend stocks versus growth stocks. You often hear about two types of investors: Those that invest for dividends (typically falling into the value investing category) vs. those that invest for capital appreciation (typically called growth investors). Learn why I have concluded that dividend investing is right for me, and how I plan to pay for all of my living expenses via dividends one day. Learn about the following personal finance topics: * Dividends and capital appreciation * Volatility * Established businesses vs. less established businesses * Bull markets vs. bear markets * Principal * Capital allocation While dividend stocks and growth stocks each have their pros and cons, I buy very few growth stocks since my strategy is so tied to passive income and cash flow. In fact, I don't really track share prices nor portfolio value as closely as I track my stream of passive dividend income.

Foreign Direct Investment It is the long term investment by a company in a foreign country. Apex-Brasil offers free support to build relations with governments, organizations and companies in various parts of the country.
What if I were investing $10,000 dollars in the stock market? What if I were investing ten thousand dollars for the first time? Today's video is all about that hypothetical situation, from a dividend income, cash flow, and passive income perspective. Topics covered include: (1) I would divide my $10,000 dollars into four stocks (equal amounts in each). I would choose my stocks from the four following industries: consumer non-cyclical food and beverage, consumer non-cyclical basic needs, medical and pharmaceutical, and industrials. These are the industries that will be around forever, which is essential for dividend investing and compound interest. (2) I would leverage DRIPs for my ten thousand dollars, or dividend reinvestment plans. These plans would allow my dividends to buy fractional shares of stock (via reinvestment) for low (or even no) fees. Dividend reinvestment plans would be critical for my compound interest strategy. Eventually, I would want to live off the dividends, but in the short and medium term, I would reinvest the dividends. (Where dividend reinvestment plans did not exist, or carried higher fees, I would leverage a low cost stock broker.) (3) I would stagger four $2,500 lump sum investments over the course of 3 or 4 months. After 3 or 4 months, my $10,000 dollars would be fully invested. (4) While my immediate dividend income would be around $300 per year (a nice amount of dividends), I would avoid the temptation to spend that money. Rather, I would reinvest. (5) I would build up a cash buffer (or emergency fund) so that I didn't have the temptation to tap into my stock portfolio when times got rough and I was short on cash. Ten thousand dollars is a lot of money, and the temptation will be there to cash out when money gets tight. (6) I would periodically add money to my positions. I would add as much as possible to my stock portfolio over time, investing in those positions that had the greatest value at the time. (7) I would buy blue chip companies with my $10,000 investment, although I would diversify market capitalizations (market caps) from $10 billion up to several hundred billion. With this size of a portfolio, I like to start diversifying by market cap. (8) I would target companies that provide 5-7% dividend growth each year. (9) Last, I would target starting yields in the 2-3% range. When one invests $10,000 dollars for the first time, that is a big deal. We're talking about a lot of money here. This video highlights the main things that I would do differently with ten thousand than smaller amounts. This video builds on my other videos in the same series. My One Thousand Dollar Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iijz-5vGSh0 My Five Thousand Dollar Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Bp0TzQKRr0 Thirty years out, assuming a starting yield of 3% and a 7% rate of dividend growth over time, my initial $10,000 dollar investment would yield $2,300 a year in dividends. And, that's a conservative model since i don't look at capital appreciation nor reinvested dividends. On a conservative basis, I'm yielding a large amount that can pay some serious bills after 30 years. That's the power of starting with a larger amount of money and going the dividend growth route.

Stocks provide a return to today's investors via two mechanisms: dividends and capital gains. Dividends provide and income stream which can be qualitatively values. Capital gains result from speculation -- an expectation that future dividends will be higher than the market currently expects. But what's the value of a company that continuously pays no dividends and does not appear as if it ever will in the foreseeable future? Former financier and current statistician Tan Liu, author of the recent book The Ponzi Factor: The Simple Truth About Investment Profits explains how many of today's perpetually dividend-less companies traded on the public market are operating as ponzi schemes by definition. As a result, a substantial amount of the market capitalization of our stock market is actually "phantom wealth" that doesn't truly exist. It will vaporize during the next financial crisis as investors prioritize cash flows in-hand over the promises of starry-eyed CEOs.

Financial metrics are the key numbers that you can focus on in financial statements. There are three financial statements, the balance sheet, the income statement and the cash flow that we like to look at to find important metrics. http://bit.ly/2xOCmRl Were going to look at some of the most important financial metrics that you as investors can use to evaluate a company. The first important number we look at on the balance sheet is liquidity. Can the company you’re looking at really cover everything that they need to cover in the next year? Or have they somehow overloaded themselves with short term debt and obligations that they could really run out of cash in the next year? In order to evaluate this, we want to look at the current ratio. Essentially it is a measure of working capital. It compares the current assets, which are assets that can be turned into cash in the next year, with current liabilities, which are obligations that have to be paid in the next year. What you want to look for when evaluating a company is a 2:1 ratio of liquidity to debt. Some companies are very well run that have a lower ratios than that, because they are controlling their cash very well, or they are in an industry that isn’t growing fast so they don’t need as much liquidity. These companies work their capital down so they don’t need as much cash on hand all the time and they can give that money to their shareholders. You will know that these companies are very well run because, they are really big companies. Most companies, particularly smaller companies need at least a 2:1 ratio between current assets and current liabilities. That’s a great measure of liquidity. We call that the liquidity metric.

By subscriber request, today's video is my guide to taxes explained for investors. Over my 20+ years investing, I have picked up a wealth of knowledge on the taxation of investments. While I'm not a licensed tax advisor and today's video is not tax advice, I wanted to share my personal thoughts on the topic for dividend investors and growth investors alike. A continuation of my last video (dividend investing vs. growth investing), I want to illustrate via taxes why I personally prefer dividend investing, as it is a tax efficient vehicle (in my personal opinion). I start out with two examples, my recent short-term capital gain on my Bitcoin profit. And, my ownership in McDonald's (MCD), a long-term dividend growth stock, where I'm deferring capital gains (since I never plan to sell) and only have to worry about taxes on my qualified dividends (which fall into the long-term capital gains bucket). Some fun facts you'll learn from my Bitcoin illustration: * I earned 329% in less than a year on my Bitcoin position. * I was subject to short term capital gains. * There is no way I could have held longer (it still have not been 1 year and Bitcoin has fallen 50% from my average sale price). This, in a nutshell, is what plagues growth investors most. Some fun facts you'll learn from my McDonald’s illustration: * I am up 116% via capital appreciation, but owe no taxes right now since I don't intend to sell. (Taxes are only due if one were to sell.) * I enjoy a 5.5% yield on cost (and growing). My dividends are taxed at the lower long-term capital gains tax rate. * Dividend income is taxed at a lower rate than income earned from working! I am incentivized to earn passive vs. active income. For someone looking to live off dividends, this is why I believe dividends are so tax efficient. After my two examples, I dive into a variety of tax-related topics (for investors of all sorts): * Capital appreciation * Dividends * Short-term capital gains * Long-term capital gains * The 3.8% Medicare tax (Obamacare tax) * Qualified dividends vs. non-qualified dividends * Federal vs. state taxes * International companies (and tax implications) * Tax-advantaged vs. non-tax-advantaged accounts (401k and Roth IRA) * More!

Every investor should have a basic grasp of the discounted cash flow (DCF) technique. Here, Tim Bennett introduces the concept, and explains how it can be applied to valuing a company.

You'll learn what "Free Cash Flow" (FCF) means, why it's such an important metric when analyzing and valuing companies. By http://breakingintowallstreet.com/ "Financial Modeling Training And Career Resources For Aspiring Investment Bankers" You'll also learn how to interpret positive vs. negative FCF, and what different numbers over time mean -- using a comparison between Wal-Mart, Amazon, and Salesforce as our example. Table of Contents: 0:54 What Free Cash Flow (FCF) is and Why It's Important 2:26 What Positive FCF Tells You, and What to Do With It 3:56 What Negative FCF Tells You, and What to Do With It 4:38 Why You Exclude Most Investing and Financing Activities in the FCF Calculation 7:55 How to Use and Interpret FCF When Analyzing Companies 11:58 Wal-Mart vs. Amazon vs. Salesforce: Free Cash Flow Across Sectors 19:33 Recap and Summary What is Free Cash Flow? Normally it's defined as Cash Flow from Operations minus Capital Expenditures. Tells you the company's DISCRETIONARY cash flow - after paying for expenses and working capital requirements like inventory and capital expenditures, how much cash flow can it put to use for other purposes? If the company generates a lot of Free Cash Flow, it has many options: hire more employees, spend more on working capital, invest in CapEx, invest in other securities, repay debt, issue dividends or repurchase shares, or even acquire other companies. If FCF is negative, you need to dig in and see if it's a one-time issue or recurring problem, and then figure out why: Are sales declining? Are expenses too high? Is the company spending too much on CapEx? If FCF is consistently negative, the company might have to raise debt or equity eventually, or it might have to restructure itself or cut costs in some other way. Why Do You Exclude Most Investing and Financing Activities Other Than CapEx? Because all other activities are, for the most part, "optional" and non-recurring. A normal company does not NEED to buy stocks or issue dividends or repurchase shares... those are all optional uses of cash. All it NEEDS to do to keep its business running is sell products to customers, pay for expenses, and keep investing in longer-term assets such as buildings and equipment (PP&E). Debt repayment and interest expense are "borderline" because some variations of Free Cash Flow will include them, others will exclude them, and some will include interest expense but not debt principal repayment. How Do You Use Free Cash Flow? It's used in a DCF (or at least, a variation of it) to value a company; it's also used in a leveraged buyout (LBO) model to determine how much debt a company can repay. And you can calculate it on a standalone basis for use when comparing different companies. The key is to DIG IN and see why Free Cash Flow is changing the way it is - Organic sales growth? Artificial cost-cutting? Accounting gimmicks? Different working capital policies? IDEALLY, FCF will be increasing because of higher units sales and/or higher market share, and/or higher margins due to economies of scale. Less Good: FCF is growing due to cost-cutting, CapEx slashing, or FCF is growing in spite of falling sales and profits... because of a company playing games with Working Capital, non-core activities, or CapEx spending. Wal-Mart vs. Amazon vs. Salesforce Comparison Main takeaway here is that Wal-Mart's FCF is all over the place, but Cash Flow from Operations is MOSTLY growing, so that appears to be driven by the also growing organic sales. The company is doing some odd things with CapEx and Working Capital, which led to fluctuations in FCF - not exactly "bad" or "good," just neutral and requires more research. With Amazon, they've increased CapEx spending massively in the past 2 years so that has pushed down CapEx. CFO is growing, driven by organic revenue growth (no "games" with Working Capital), but it's very difficult to assess whether all that CapEx spending will pay off in the long-term. With Salesforce, FCF is definitely growing organically (Revenue growth leads directly to CFO growth, and CapEx varies a bit but not as much as with Amazon), but the company is also spending a ton on acquisitions... will it continue? If CapEx as a % of revenue stays low, it will most likely continue to spend on acquisitions - unlikely to issue dividends, repurchase shares, etc. since it's a growth company.

So, we've been putting off a kind of basic question here. What is money? What is currency? How are the two different. Well, not to give away too much, but money has a few basic functions. It acts as a store of value, a medium of exchange, and as a unit of account. Money isn't just bills and coins. It can be anything that meets these three criteria. In US prisons, apparently, pouches of Mackerel are currency. Yes, mackerel the fish. Paper and coins work as money because they're backed by the government, which is an advantage over mackerel. So, once you've got money, you need finance. We'll talk about borrowing, lending, interest, and stocks and bonds. Also, this episode features a giant zucchini, which Adriene grew in her garden. So that's cool.

FinTree website link: http://www.fintreeindia.com FB Page link :http://www.facebook.com/Fin... This series of video covers the following points : -There are two ways to estimate the equity value using free cash flows. -An entire firm and all its cash flows (FCFF) are discounted, with the relevant discount rate being the weighted average cost of capital (WACC) because it reflects all the firm’s sources of capital. The value of the firm’s debt is then subtracted to calculate the equity value. -Only the free cash flows to equity (FCFE) are discounted, with the relevant discount rate being the required return on equity. This provides a more direct way of estimating equity value. -In theory, both approaches should yield the same equity value if the inputs are consistent. However, the FCFF approach would be favored in two cases. The firm’s FCFE is negative. -The firm’s capital structure (mix of debt and equity financing) is unstable. The FCFF approach is favored here because a) the required return on equity used in the FCFE approach will be more volatile when the firm’s financial leverage (use of debt) is unstable and b) when using historical data to estimate free cash flow growth, FCFF growth might reflect the firm’s fundamentals better than FCFE growth, which would fluctuate as debt fluctuates. -FCFF and FCFE approaches to valuation -value of a company by using the stable-growth, two-stage, and three-stage FCFF and FCFE models. -appropriate adjustments to net income, earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT), earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA), and cash flow from operations (CFO) to calculate FCFF and FCFE. -approaches for forecasting FCFF and FCFE. -approaches for calculating the terminal value in a multistage valuation model -We love what we do, and we make awesome video lectures for CFA and FRM exams. Our Video Lectures are comprehensive, easy to understand and most importantly, fun to study with! -This Video lecture was recorded by our popular trainer for CFA, Mr. Utkarsh Jain, during one of his live CFA Level II Classes in Pune (India).

Are you considering an investment in REITs (or Real Estate Investment Trusts) for dividends and cash flow? I personally own only one REIT in my dividend portfolio and consider my REIT an ancillary (non-core) position. That being said, I am in a unique situation because I work in the real estate industry and own a home (I am already over-weighted, at a high level, in the real estate industry). A subscriber question, today's video goes into a multitude of pros, cons, and factors to consider about investing in real estate investment trusts for dividend income. * Do you work in the real estate industry? Do you already own a home? Do you own physical real estate investments? If so, those are all factors worth considering when contemplating REITs for one’s dividend portfolio. When looking at diversification, I don't only look at my portfolio. I look at all factors in my life. If the real estate industry tanks, I don't want to get hit on the job front, the home front, and the portfolio front all at once! * Real estate investment trusts carry important tax considerations. As pass through entities, they avoid double taxation (and are required to distribute most of their earnings). That said, the shareowner has to pay ordinary income on dividends (as compared to long term capital gains on qualified dividends of most corporations). Long story short, the tax rate on dividends from REITs is higher than your typical dividend-paying corporation. Moreover, reporting REIT dividends on one's tax return can be complicated (the distributions sometimes involve ordinary income and return of capital). Learn why it's important to weigh tax considerations when investing in real estate investment trusts for dividends and cash flow. * Since some REITs pay dividends on a monthly basis, they can help you stay in the game. Those monthly dividend checks are great for reinvesting and building one’s portfolio. A subscriber insight, I really love this idea! * Interest rates are really low right now. As interest rates rise, some REITs may face challenges securing (affordable) capital to do deals. This could affect short-term and future prospects. * The retail industry is going through a lot of change. When investing in REITs, it's a wise idea to understand exposure to retail. * Sometimes, one can experience superior results by investing in real estate directly. It may be more effective to invest in rental properties than going the REIT route. That said, real estate investment trusts are easier since one does not have to actively manage the real estate assets.

Clicked here http://www.MBAbullshit.com/ and OMG wow! I'm SHOCKED how easy.. How valuable is a share of stock? How much is the fair value of a share? Simply how much must you accurately be inclined to purchase a stock? In principle, the value in a share of stock depends on any one of the following: 1) Book Value or Net Asset Value, 2) Net Present Value of our stock's cash flow (as a part of firm returns), and 3) Net Present Value of your share's dividends. With regard to the first method earlier mentioned, it is crucial to realize the book value in a business enterprise's assets could be not the same as the market value. Market value is founded on what real people are proposing to purchase assets, but book value is influenced by purchase price less depreciation; based upon using generally accepted accounting principles. For instance, a company might have a building and autos which were constructed and attained at an expenditure of 1 million dollars. Having said that, on account of depreciation, accountants establish that the assets at this recent time are valued at only $700,000. Moreover, the company carries debt of $100,000. Consequently, the net asset value of this company is $600,000. If ever the company has 1,000 outstanding shares of stock, then each share of stock would have a net asset value of $600. With this, using the first technique, the value of our aforementioned stock is $600. With regard to net present value on the stock's earnings as a share of company earnings, we are able to principally just say that stock value is driven by present value of the total number of future earnings, which can be then dependent to some sizable extent around the net present value calculation. In this case, if ever the net present value of all of our stock's long run returns is established as being $500, then our second method would signify that $500 is the fair value of our stock, whether or not it is actually lower than the net asset value of $600 as discovered at the beginning technique previously mentioned. Lastly, let's take a look at employing the net present value of the stock's dividends. Contrary to valuing a stock by acquiring the net present value of earnings, we get hold of the worth of the stock by acquiring the net present value of dividends, many times with regard to cash dividends. Why dividends versus earnings? To some owners or shareholders, it does not really matter how much a company earns, if the business enterprise does not ultimately give away the cash to the owners. Because there are alternative approaches on stock valuation, dissimilar professionals maintain their personal choice regarding which technique is most appropriate... depending on their personal unique orientations. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SGoKkmBgB_Q http://mbabullshit.com/blog/stock-valuation-in-27-minutes-valuing-stocks/

This video shows the effect of an Equity Method investment on the Statement of Cash Flows. When the investor recognizes a share of the investee's Net Income, the investor must subtract this amount as an adjustment in the cash flow from operating activities section. When the investor recognizes a share of the investee's Net Loss, the investor must add this amount as an adjustment in the cash flow from operating activities section. If the investor receives dividends from the investee, the dividends received are added as an adjustment in the cash flow from operating activities section.

Sign up for the tutorial series "The FAST Approach" at: http://stockinvestingsimplified.com Do you really need more than $1 million to retire in comfort? Where did the stock market crashes of 2001 and 2008 leave you? The new reality that faces many Americans is that despite having saved for 20 or 30years and placing those hard-earned dollars in the hands of a trusted mutual fund advisor, they have seen a massive erosion of their capital. Many of us are now faced with the stark reality of having to work well into our 70's in order to rebuild our lost wealth. Unfortunately, we have all been brain-washed into thinking that we need to amass a huge nest egg in order to live comfortably during our retirement years. This is based on the assumption that we move our investment capital into more conservative investment vehicles such as bonds, treasury notes or certificates of deposit as we approach retirement. With these so-called "safer, risk-free" investments, we can count on a whopping 2-4% annual return. It's no wonder that many financial advisors want you to have over $1 million in tangible assets. If you're only getting a conservative return of 3%, this equates to a retirement income of $30 thousand per year. There has to be a better way. So how do you take back control over your wealth creation? The simple answer is to learn how to invest for cash flow. Cash flow? You may be asking yourself: Now that would require a whole shift in how I've been programmed to think and act. I know that it took me awhile to fully grasp the possibility of a simpler approach to dealing with my challenge of having enough retirement capital. Here are the steps that I followed, and that I encourage you to follow, to shift the odds in your favor: The first step is to select the wealth creation sector, whether it be stocks, real estate, or systematized business, that you would like to invest in as an active investor. Step # 2. Learn how to invest for cash flow in that particular wealth creation sector. For example, if you are fascinated with the wonderful world of stock investing, as I am, then start learning how to invest in best of breed businesses as well as how to use simple option strategies to create consistent double digit returns whether the market is going up or down. Step 3. Take back control of your investment portfolio by firing your mutual fund advisor and opening up a self-directed investment account. Once you have increased your financial IQ from step 2, you won't want to settle for the mediocre returns that most mutual funds provide. Being an actively-engaged and educated investor, you now have built up your level of confidence in becoming a successful investor. Step #4. Realize that the concept of retirement has changed dramatically over the past 10 years. By becoming an active investor, you can continue to build your wealth well into your 70's. As long as you can think clearly, you can profit from being actively involved in generating cash flow from your investments. And step 5. Work towards the goal of phasing out of your current employment while at the same time being more effective in generating the necessary cash flow to support your desired retirement lifestyle. Here's a simple comparison to illustrate the power behind cash flowing investments. In order to realize an income of $30 thousand per year with a 15% return on your capital, you would only need a nest egg of $200 thousand, not $1 million. That's a huge difference and do-able for you to realize. It's a far cry from what many in the financial services industry have been saying that you need. The key to your success is taking the first step and becoming better educated as to how you can tap into cash flowing investments, whether it be in the stock market, rental real estate or setting up a systematized business.

I have six years of peer to peer lending and investing experience, on the LendingClub platform. I have invested in over 1,000 loans, in $25 increments. As a dividend growth investor and proponent of income investments (I optimize for passive income and yield), this video compares LendingClub (and peer to peer lending overall) to dividend stocks. In particular, I discuss the pros, cons, and returns that are possible with P2P lending. Highlights include: * I go into depth on my personal results with peer to peer lending and LendingClub. Learn about my personal net annual return (after defaults) since I started back in 2011. * Learn about the tax implications of peer to peer lending (taxed as ordinary income) versus qualified dividends (taxed as long term capital gains). * See how I leverage my peer to peer loan portfolio as a makeshift emergency fund. * Learn why I am personally at a crossroads, and am considering taking all money out of peer to peer lending and into dividend stocks. I'm at a point where it probably makes sense to just focus on one strategy, especially with my unexciting results from P2P lending. * Learn how I used to work for the CEO of LendingClub, in a prior job, and why I think the company and platform is great. * One cannot necessarily compare dividend growth investing to peer to peer lending, as they are different asset classes. That said, the comparison is important to my portfolio. * Learn how investing in peer to peer loans helps people out (those borrowing money).
