Our Pal David Bahnsen’s New Book Is Out Tomorrow

No, it’s not political, but so what: Would you care so much about politics if you left your savings unattended, noticing when you’re old that you might also be broke? Of course it’s all preventable, and in The Case for Dividend Growth: Investing in a Post-Crisis World, our amigo (David is the founder, managing partner, and chief investment officer of The Bahnsen Group, which manages over $1.5 billion in client assets, and he’s consistently named as one of America’s top financial advisers by Barron’s, Forbes, and the Financial Times) explains an investment strategy that offers growth, income, and growth-of-income. If you think, that’s how I can outpace inflation, you’d be right!

Fellow investment-wise man Nick Murray had this to say about The Case for Dividend Growth:

In three-decade baby boom retirements, the only rational investment objective isn’t income; it’s growth of income. Your income has to keep rising on at least the same trajectory as your living costs, or you’ll run out of money. No problem: the dividends of mainstream equities have, in the aggregate, been increasing at almost twice CPI inflation for as long as any of us have been alive. And wait, there’s more: to the extent you can live on those rising dividends, your patrimony can continue to grow for your heirs. Yet it isn’t too much to say that the immense power of dividend growth has always been the least understood, most underappreciated phenomenon in investing. Well, not anymore: investors of all ages will find David Bahnsen’s pellucid and highly readable tutorial a life-forwarding experience.

How can you not want a copy of The Case for Dividend Growth? Again, we’ve very happy for David, and while Tuesday may be the official Big Day for his important new book (his last one, Crisis of Responsibility, was pretty important too), we encourage you to order a copy now. Sure, you can visit your local bookstore this week and grab a copy. But while it’s on your mind, maybe right now order your copy of The Case for Dividend Growth on Amazon.

Almost a decade ago, I wrote a little book called The Politically Incorrect Guide to Socialism.
