It's frowned on, but "dividend skimming" is 100% legal.
Investors use the strategy to quickly collect income from blue-chip companies while only holding the stock for a few days.
The next dividend skimming opportunity occurs later this month
Michigan (PR) --- The strategy is simple:
Most dividend-paying stocks issue a dividend payment to share-holders four times a year.
But here's the thing:
It doesn't matter if you bought the stock 20 years ago or 2 hours ago. As long you sneak in before the deadline (known as the "ex-dividend" date), the company will pay you a dividend.
Some retirees and investors attempt to exploit dividend timing rules by purchasing stock a few days before the deadline, and then selling the stock shortly after collecting the dividend payment. This allows them to pocket the dividend payments without holding the stock for the rest of the year.
The key is knowing not only what stocks to buy, but knowing exactly what day to buy and what day to sell.
For example, Apple (AAPL) - like many other Fortune 500 companies -- pays quarterly dividends to shareholders. The next dividend payment is scheduled just a few weeks away. But you must own the stock on or before the ex-dividend date to receive the dividend.
My name is Bill Poulos. I'm a semi-retired engineer with a passion for investing and I've just published a step-by-step guide that reveals how anyone can copy this "dividend skimming" strategy to generate a safe and secure source of income.
It's called "Safe & Simple Dividend Skimming For Beginners" and in just a moment, I'll reveal how you can get a FREE copy of this strategy guide. But first let me show you...
Collecting dividends is fine if you've already got a sizeable account. For example, if you've got an account large enough to purchase $1,000,000 of AAPL stock, you could collect a dividend payment of roughly $5,000 each quarter.
But what if you don't have a million dollars sitting around? Or if you're unwilling to tie up a seven-figure sum in a single stock? Well, in that case there's an unusual strategy that gives you the chance to go after incredible returns even if you've starting with a small retirement or trading account.
I call it the "10-Q Protocol" and here's how it works...
Each quarter, publicly-traded companies are required to file form "10-Q" with the Security & Exchange Commission (SEC).
Investors around the world anxiously await the 4 times per year when companies file these forms.
And that's because this document reveals key financials that bring to light the overall "health" of the company.
The #1 thing investors and traders are looking for is a company's reported earnings. In the eyes of a trader or investor, earnings are the single most important indicator of growth and progress.
Earnings announcements are released 4 times a year on most major stocks. The dates of the earnings announcements are freely available to everyone online (or by asking your broker).
In the days leading up to the official earning's announcement, anticipation builds and speculation runs rampant. So when a company's earnings numbers are finally released, you'll often see the stock's price jump wildly. In fact, you can almost count on it. (This is very important because it opens an incredible profit opportunity for those who know what to do. More on this in a minute.)
Let me show you:
Here's a chart of Apple stock over the last year. As you can see, almost like clockwork the stock price reacts wildly to the earnings announcements each quarter.
It's not just Apple. Any widely-traded stock tends to see large price swings the four times a year when earnings announcements are released. Have a look:
Here's a chart of Facebook over a year. As you can see in the chart above, practically any time Facebook's share price made a major move over the course of this year, it was because of earnings announcements.
Here's one more...
Here's a chart of Netflix over a year's timespan. As you can see, 4x over the year — the Netflix stock price made wild moves. And it should be no surprise to you at this point that those 4 times just happened to be the 4 earnings announcements dates. In fact, Netflix is notorious for reacting wildly to earnings announcements. That's bad news for Netflix shareholders. But great news for anyone using the 10-Q Protocol strategy. And it's because...
To that end, there's a special type of trade that nearly anyone can use to go after 50%, 100%, even nearly 200% returns in just a few days... almost every time there's an earnings announcement scheduled for a popular stock.
That's not a guarantee of course, but I'll show some tested results in a moment so you can judge for yourself how effective this strategy can be.
Here's how it works...
A few days before publicly-traded companies are legally required to file their 10-Q report (and announce earnings), you'll put on a special type of trade that pays you if the stock goes UP. At the same time, you'll put in place another trade that pays you if the stock price goes DOWN. This is a key point...
Sometimes a company will BEAT earning's expectations... and the stock price will actually fall. And just as often, a company will announce miserable quarterly earnings... and the stock price will go up. Like I said - it makes no sense and trying to predict if the stock will rise or fall is a fool's game.
And that's why using the 10-Q Protocol is so powerful. Because with this simple trade in place, you can profit no matter if the stock rises or falls.
But hold on because it gets even better...
With 10-Q Protocol, you don't have to buy a single share of stock! Instead, I'll show you how to use a little-known investment strategy that lets you control 100 shares of stock for just pennies on the dollar.
If you wanted to buy 100 shares of AAPL stock at today's market price, it would cost you approximately $13,000. But with the 10-Q Protocol, you could control 100 shares of stock for roughly $500. And the news gets better still. Because when you control shares of stock using the 10-Q Protocol during earnings season you stand to profit handsomely if the stock makes a major move.
Remember - it doesn't matter if the stock goes up or down. As long as it makes a modest move either up or down, you could see substantial profits in as little as a couple weeks.
I've run the 10-Q Protocol each time Apple makes an earnings announcement over the past 3 years. As you can see from the tested results below, this strategy boasts an incredibly high win rate.
Remember - you can win the trade if the stock price goes up OR down. In fact, the only scenario where you are in danger of losing money on the trade is if the stock price does NOT move much. Make no mistake - this WILL happen from time-to-time.
But losses are always kept small - in this case the isolated losing trade over the last 3 years resulted in an insignificant 4.2% loss. Compare that with all the winning trades where the average winner resulted in an 84.4% gain in just a few short weeks.
Take a look...
In plain English – a modest $500 investment using the 10-Q Protocol back in October 2014 would have turned into $1,470 in just a few weeks.
A $1,000 investment could have turned into $2,480 in just a couple weeks during July of 2015.
And a $5,000 investment during April of 2016 could have nearly doubled, swelling to $9,950 in about 21 days.
Of course, no strategy works 100% of the time and there will be the occasional losing trade. If you can't handle that, you have no business investing.
But with the 10-Q Protocol you can NEVER lose more than the amount you stake on any trade... And if you follow my step-by-step instructions, I can guarantee you'll NEVER suffer an account-crippling loss.
This is because I'll show you how to take special precautions to keep any losing trades as tiny as possible. And besides, this special two-part trade is so safe and simple that...
You might be wondering why more traders and investors aren't using this strategy. Truth be told, it's simply because very few people (outside of Wall Street) know about this.
But once you try this strategy, I suspect you may never go back to traditional "buy-and-hold" investing.
I'd like to help you get started - today.
The next earnings announcement is just a few short weeks away. This means you've got an opportunity to go after 50%, 100% or even nearly 200% returns using my special 10-Q Protocol on any number of widely-traded stocks.
Here's the kind of results you could have seen using my 10-Q Protocol on other stocks over a recent time period...
Using the 10-Q Protocol during a recent Yahoo Earning's announcement resulted in a phenomenal 216% gain over just 20 days.
If you ventured $1,000 on this trade, you'd have watched that grow to $3,160 in less than 3 weeks! Here's another one...
Using the 10-Q Protocol during a recent Facebook Earnings Announcement season could have resulted in an incredible 88.5% gain in just a single day. If you put $5,000 on this trade, you'd be looking at $9,425 in just 24 hours. You won't always see quick results like this but if you follow the steps of my protocol, you'll know when it's time to get out and look for other opportunities for profit.
But the 10-Q Protocol is not just for tech stocks. You can use this strategy on nearly any widely-traded stock. Have a look:
When the 10-Q Protocol was applied to CMT (Chipotle), the result was an 82.7% gain – again in just a single day. There's virtually no better feeling in the world than putting $1,000 on a trade and pulling down nearly $2,000 within 24 hours.
Remember, you can use this strategy on a wide variety of publicly-traded companies.
You don't need to buy any shares and this has nothing to do with "shorting" stocks or anything like that.
You can test this strategy "on paper" if you like, or you can start with a small amount of money and monitor the results with your own two eyes.
One thing is certain, though. Once you try the 10-Q Protocol, you may never be satisfied with ordinary dividend payments again. This comparison chart shows why...
In October of 2014, Apple paid a quarterly dividend of 47 cents per share. The stock was trading around $100 a share at the time.
So if you had purchased $1,000 of AAPL stock, you could have purchased 10 shares of stock and as a stock holder you would have received a total of $4.70 in the form a dividend payment. Yawn.
However, had you invested $1,000 using my 10-Q Protocol during that same time period, you could brought back an incredible $2,940 return from your original stake. That's nearly tripling your investment in just a few weeks.
In plain English...
That's why I'm so excited about this 10-Q Protocol. I've prepared a short strategy guide that reveals exactly how to copy my 10-Q trading protocol to go after 50%, 100% or even nearly 200% gains during the upcoming earnings season. Which begins in just a few weeks. Best of all, I'd like to give you a copy of this video strategy guide...
That's right. I'm offering to send you "Safe & Simple Dividend Skimming For Beginners" AND a copy of my "10-Q Trading Protocol" as my gift to you.
Here's the unusual reason why I'm making this generous offer...
To be perfectly honest, I'm sick and tired of watching the "Wall Street Windbags" screw over honest, hard-working people looking for safe & steady ways to protect and grow their savings.
Ever heard of James Glassman?
The name may not ring a bell but in 1999 he did a full-on media blitz. He was everywhere - TV shows, radio interviews and newspaper articles - pumping his book titled "Dow 36,000." Yes, that's right - he was pushing a book claiming the Dow Jones was going to hit 36,000 back in 1999. Remember how that worked out?
You recognize this lady, right? That's Barbara Corcoran. Maybe you've seen her on the hit TV show Shark Tank. Her claim to fame? A high-flying Manhattan real estate "expert". I'm putting "expert" in quotes because in 2005, when Businessweek Magazine asked her about a potential real estate bubble, she replied...
"Of Course There's No Bubble."
Whoops. Turns out there absolutely WAS a bubble and the bubble didn't just deflate, it burst. But the grand-daddy of them all has got to be the infamous Jim Cramer.
On March 11th, 2008, Cramer fielded a question from a caller on his nationally televised show. The caller was asking about Bear Sterns. Cramer enthusiastically replied...
"Bear Sterns Is Fine! Don't Be Silly!"
Do you remember what happened next? Within 5 days, Bear Sterns became "financially insolvent" and the stock priced dropped 85%.
I could give you dozens of other examples, but I think you get the point. If it's your goal to find a safe and secure way to grow your wealth, protect your portfolio, generate income from the markets AND support your loved ones for years to come, you can't afford to listen to Wall Street.
That's what most people do. They blindly follow the Wall Street Windbags. And like lemmings marching towards a cliff, it always ends in disaster.
As I said earlier, my name is Bill Poulos and I've been investing for over 40 years. I've never worked a day on Wall Street. Never been featured on CNN. And I don't have any books on the best-seller list.
Despite my lack of fame, I've developed a bit of a cult following. In 2001 my son Greg and I founded Profits Run with the goal of teaching ordinary people the smarter and safer way to build wealth.
Since then over 80,000 people around the world look to me for advice and instruction on investing and building wealth
I reckon I've developed such a following because of my safe and simple approach to growing money. I don't believe in trying to find "the next Apple" or "the next Microsoft."
I don't believe in risking foolish amounts of money or putting your retirement in danger with dicey investments. To that end, what I'm about to present to you today is certainly NOT for everyone...
I understand those requirements probably drove most people away. You need to know I did this intentionally. In fact, I'm happy to watch 99% of people tuck tail and run because what I'm offering today is reserved exclusively for those courageous enough to explore a different path.
If that sounds like you, then here's my invitation:
I'll send both "Safe & Simple Dividend Skimming For Beginners" AND a copy of my "10-Q Trading Protocol" as my gift to you when you take a completely risk-free trial of my monthly newsletter, "The Premium Income Letter."
For decades now, I've been fielding questions from friends, neighbors and family members about investing, picking stocks or the state of the market. I certainly don't mind chatting with a neighbor who's asking what I think about the price of gold (it's going higher) or if we're headed for another stock market crash (we are.)
But despite showing over 80,000 students around the world my unique brand of safe and simple investing, I know there's still more to be done.
I know that too many people are putting their retirements at risk by listening to the musings of a wet-behind-the-ears broker or by chasing Wall Street's next "can't miss" recommendation.
That's why I started publishing the Premium Income Letter - my monthly advisory publication where I cut through the nonsense you hear from the talking heads and reveal the truth about what's really happening in the markets.
I'll share thoughts on current market conditions, predictions on what's happening next, and specific investing recommendations you can copy to go after a safe & steady income from the markets - delivered in my usual straight-talk fashion.
Just straightforward advice, instruction and recommendations from a guy who's firmly in YOUR corner. But make no mistake about it. This isn't one of those newsletters with 30 pages of theory and puff.
In every issue, I'll be giving you specific and measurable steps to take on how to safely increase your wealth. I'll even let you look over my shoulder and copy the exact system I'd previously only shared with a few close friends and family members.
The bedrock of the Premium Income Letter is my all-weather "Buy & Bank" portfolio. In addition to my latest research and thoughts on where the market is headed next, I'm also going to give you specific recommendations on how to use this information to generate income from the markets.
Here's how that works:
Over the years I've engineered a specific and propriety formula that works to pinpoint the stocks with the greatest chance of producing safe and steady gains.
I can't reveal the formula to you here (that wouldn't be fair to my current Premium Income Letter members) but I can tell you this...
As part of a test, I've been running my Buy & Bank model portfolio since 2013 and in that time span, an incredible 82.4% of my recommendations have produced a double-digit gain - often in less than 8 weeks. And the annualized return on my "Buy & Bank" model portfolio is over 30%!
That's why I think this formula provides any investor with an almost foolproof method for generating income from the markets without ever putting your nest egg in danger. I'm confident that no matter if you're a hardened investor, a raw rookie or somewhere in between, you'll love the clock-work simplicity and real returns provided by this portfolio strategy.
And I think within the first 60 days you'll see the results with your own two eyes. You'll see the potential to grow your trading or retirement account without ever exposing your nest egg to unnecessary risk. And you'll finally see the path to creating true wealth.
Ultimately, that's my goal. To not only send you winning picks every month but to actually teach you my method for building wealth. To that end, I'm adding something special when you begin a 60-day risk-free trial of the Premium Income Letter today...

P.S. If you're still on the fence, let me share a recent news item with you...
On January 31st, 2017 Apple filed their quarterly 10-Q report and released their earnings statement. Most of the world was expecting poor earnings and therefore the general consensus was that Apple was going to get crushed.
In fact, one trader even went so far as to stake his entire trading account on a bet that Apple would drop by 20% once the earnings were released. Maybe you remember seeing the story.
Can you guess what happened next?
Defying all odds, Apple beat their expected earnings and the stock soared. The trader who predicted Apple would drop? Completely wiped out.
Sure, the trader was dumb for betting his entire account on a hunch but despite that I honestly feel bad for the guy. Had he used my 10-Q Protocol instead, he could have gone after a 50%, 100% or even a nearly 200% gain without ever trying to guess what the market was going to do next.
