No matter what anyone tells you, BUILDING A SOLID PORTFOLIO TAKES TIME, DATA and KNOWLEDGE! When it comes to agreeing with a big investment firm’s marketing tactics it’s about the only thing we agree on. Year after year, we see more DIY investors that have decided to save on fees and manage their own portfolio. If you read this blog, you are probably part of them. But even when you are able to combine both your knowledge with the data you found on the internet, there will always be that struggling question:
When do you Buy & When do you Sell?
When a stock makes money – you don’t want to sell it. It makes sense: the stock shows a strong paper profit AND pays a healthy dividend. Will you hold the stocks until the value stagnates and you are left at best with its dividend payment? Will you accompany your stock until the growth is dead and the value drops? You need to know when to sell a winning stock.
When a stock is a loser – you don’t want to sell it. It makes sense: after all, there are several reasons why you bought this company in the first place. It will eventually go back up…. Or not! How can you tell the difference between a future winner and a perpetual loser? You may think you are paid to wait with the dividend payment. I think you are paid to see your investment die slowly. You also need to know when to sell a losing stock.
How Can You Make Easy Buy & Sell Decisions?
As an investor, I’ve been like you for several years; constantly struggling between the idea of keeping or selling my stocks. Whether they go up or down… These are eternal questions for investors: When should I buy and when should I sell?
I’ve looked for the same answers as you. Value and Growth investing principles teach you how to buy and how to manage your portfolio but remain unclear as to WHEN you should buy and WHEN you should sell. Technical analysis is very demanding and is based on graphs and stats while a real company makes real cash flow, not moving averages. I simply couldn’t find the answer I was looking for.
This is why I’ve developed my own investment vision, my own investing strategy. I’ve built my technique based on personal requirements I had:
- I wanted to invest for the long term
- I wanted to grow dividend payments
- I wanted to keep my investment process simple but effective
Simple but effective. These are magic keywords. I want to make money but I don’t want to bang my head against the wall after spending 10 hours per week on my portfolio. A simple and effective investment strategy ultimately leads to having a clear process of when to buy and when to sell. I went on a quest to find easy triggers to dictate my portfolio moves ensuring both dividend growth and avoiding losses.
This is What I’m Sharing with Dividend Stocks Rock
Dividend Stocks Rock (DSR) is an investing website I created with a single goal in mind: Making your trading decision easy. The web is filled with lengthy paid investing newsletters and exhaustive stock research services. It’s all good and interesting but it requires several hours simply to assimilate their information. At the end of the day, you know more about your stock but you still struggle to buy or sell it.
Dividend Stocks Rock is an interactive investment tool created by a dividend investor like you who wants to see his dividend payout increase forever. DSR will help you get right to the point: Buy or Sell?

Dividend Stocks Rock offers you 2 ways to make your trading decisions easy. The good news is that you don’t have to pick one or the other, we give you both of them inside the website!
10 Real World Dividend Portfolios!
I like stocks so much that I eat some for breakfast. Over time, I’ve noticed that there are two major factors affecting your investment strategy: your risk tolerance and the amount invested. This is why I’ve built 10 different portfolios covering various investment styles; starter, conservative and growth. All portfolios are offered in American and Canadian versions.
- You can follow a portfolio in line with your investment style.
- You get an alert whenever we buy or sell a stock.
- You have access to past performance to track our investment returns.
- It’s the perfect solution for beginner to intermediate investors who need assistance in building their portfolio.
Our Portfolios have been built according to our investment beliefs. We look for strong dividend growth companies. This means we look at companies that will be able to both grow in value while increasing their dividend payouts year after year.
Are you Curious about the results so far? We started our portfolios on October 1st 2013. As at January 2014, 8 of our 10 portfolios beat our benchmarks:

What Existing Members Are Saying So Far
When we created Dividend Stocks Rock at the end of 2013, we wanted to make sure our investment platform was ready to meet our clients’ highest expectations.

But you don’t have to take my word for it, take theirs:
Is DSR worth the subscription? Do I feel I am getting good value? Compare the $4,900.00 that my wife is paying for advice to a one year subscription to DSR. I can’t believe the value that I am getting! DSR has exceeded my expectations by a long shot!
