In 1988 Geraldine Weiss wrote the classic Dividends Don't Lie, which focused on the Dividend-Yield Theory as a method of producing consistent gains in the stock market.

Interesting approach of taking blue chip stocks and using the dividend yield as a valuation metric. Sell when the current div yield is below historical yields and buy when the current div yield is above historical yields for that stock.

The read, however, felt like a huge lead gen for their newsletter subscription. And according to their site, their strategy offers a 1% alpha on the S&P per year, which I felt was low for an active strategy.

In my experience, most investors in dividend stocks are investing for purposes of creating a growing stream of dividend income, and that is what I thought this book was about. But it’s really not.

Short of buying his newsletter, I was left wonder how to dig up all the data needed to analyze stocks as outlined in the book.
