Do you know who's not worried about 2022? Dividend Kings members and here's why. 

Section 1: What To Expect From The Pandemic (1:43)

Section 2: What To Expect From The Economy (11:29)

Section 3: What To Expect From Inflation (16:08)

Section 4: What To Expect From Interest Rates (19:42)

Section 5: What To Expect From Corporate Profits (21:43)

Section 6: What To Expect From The Stock Market (25:08)

Section 7: What You Should Expect From Your Portfolio (28:31)

Here's a free sample of the kind of special reports that Dividend Kings members get each week to help them navigate any and all market and economic conditions. 

Want to know what analysts think the market will do in any given year? We have a tool for that. 

12-Month Forward S&P Bottom-Up Consensus 5225 Forward PE Forecast (12 Months From Now)

Forward Overvaluation Forecast (12 Months From Now)

12-Month Consensus Market Return Potential 9.1% 21.12 25.7%
12-Month Historical Margin-of-Error Consensus Market Return Potential 7.5% Historical Margin Of Error 1.60%

(Source: DK S&P 500 Valuation And Total Return Tool)

Analysts expect a modest 9% gain which historically means about a 7.5% gain is historically more likely. 

Want to know how you can crush the market in 2022? While there are no guarantees on Wall Street, buying deeply undervalued quality companies that are coiled springs is a great way to stack the odds in your favor. 

Here's a free sample of one of our latest recommendations, Chegg (CHGG), which I've personally bought $10,000 worth of because every DK Daily Blue-Chip Deal rec is a real money recommendation. 

Section 1: Introduction (0:56)

Section 2: Safety And Quality Review For Chegg (6:42)

Analysts aren't just bullish on Chegg, they expect it to soar 62% in 2022. And guess what? 45% undervalued Chegg's fundamentals absolutely justify such a bullish consensus forecast.

CHGG 2026 Consensus Total Return Potential

  • if CHGG grows as expected and returns to historical mid-range fair value
  • then 365% total returns or 36% CAGR by 2026
  • 18.3X more than the S&P 500 consensus

What if speculative hyper-growth startups aren't what you're looking for? 

It's always and forever a market of stocks, not a stock market, and something wonderful is always on sale whatever your goals:

  • maximum safe yield
  • maximum safety and quality 
  • maximum growth and total returns 
  • foreign dividend stocks
  • monthly dividend stocks
  • low volatility stocks
  • strong ESG stocks 
  • dividend aristocrats/kings/champions 

The DK 500 Master List includes the world's highest quality companies including:

  • All dividend champions

  • All dividend aristocrats

  • All dividend kings

  • All global aristocrats (such as BTI, ENB, and NVS)

  • All 13/13 Ultra Swans (as close to perfect quality as exists on Wall Street)

  • 44 of the world's best growth stocks (on its way to 50)

Every company in the Master List automatically updates its valuations on a 12-month forward basis every week. 

And every day I send out an email notification to members about which companies are new potentially good buys, reasonable buys, holds, and potential trim/sells. 

The Master List is what all our specialty watchlists run off and each watchlist can be sorted by 16 fundamentals. 

Master List Sorted By Highest 12-Month Total Return Consensus 

  • green = potentially good buy or better 
  • blue = potentially reasonable buy 
  • yellow = hold 
  • red = potential trim/sell 

For example, if you're interested in the companies with the most 12 month upside potential according to the FactSet analyst consensus, you can sort any of our watchlists by that metric or the entire Master List. 

And in just seconds find opportunities like this. 

Medifast (MED) 70% Consensus 2022 Total Return Potential 

(Source: FAST Graphs, FactSet Research)

For anyone comfortable with MED's speculative risk profile, this hyper-growth company could deliver 61% returns in 2022 merely growing as expected and returning to fair value. 

  • 2.5% OR LESS max risk cap recommendation 

What if you're looking for the safest blue-chips and mouth-watering yield, as well as market stomping return potential in 2022? 

British American Tobacco (BTI) 46% Consensus 2022 Total Return Potential

(Source: FAST Graphs, FactSet Research)

BTI is nearly 50% undervalued and analysts expect it will take several years for it to return to its historical 14X earnings. But the bottom line is that analyst forecasts for a 46% return in 2022 are 100% justified by fundamentals. 

What if you're not comfortable with tobacco blue-chips? 

Enterprise Products Partners (EPD) - Uses A K1 Tax Form 39% Consensus 2022 Total Return Potential

(Source: FAST Graphs, FactSet Research)

The highest quality midstream is a coiled spring that could soar up to 71% in 2022 merely from returning to fair value. 

Not interested in pipelines? 

How about Comcast (CMCSA), which recently fell into a 20% bear market that's not justified by its excellent fundamentals? 

Section 1: Introduction (02:46)

Section 2: Safety And Quality Review For Comcast (04:31)

Section 3: Investment Thesis (06:29)

Section 4: Risk Profile: Why Comcast Isn't Right For Everyone (14:07)

Section 5: Market-Determined Fair Value (17:40)

Section 6: Consensus Total Return Potential (19:14)

Comcast 29% Consensus 2022 Total Return Potential

(Source: FAST Graphs, FactSet Research)

Comcast's 29% return forecast is 100% justified by its fundamentals. 

These five stocks have an average 12-month consensus return potential of 50%, and those forecasts are 100% justified by fundamentals and valuations. 

What if you don't care about 12-month returns? Good for you, because over 12 months luck is 20X as powerful as fundamentals but over 10+ years fundamentals are 11X as powerful as luck.

Think again. The median retired couple can combine Unilever with a certain hyper-growth blue-chip and potentially enjoy nearly $2 million in safe and rapidly growing dividends.

But wait, it gets better. You can now combine up to five companies and see how reasonable and prudent a basket of companies is.

Our motto is safety and quality first, and prudent valuation, and sound risk management always. Our focus on risk is what sets us apart from most other Seeking Alpha marketplace services. 

The Dividend King's overall quality scores are based on a 228 point model that includes:

  • dividend safety

  • balance sheet strength

  • credit ratings

  • credit default swap medium-term bankruptcy risk data

  • short and long-term bankruptcy risk

  • accounting and corporate fraud risk

  • profitability and business model

  • growth consensus estimates

  • cost of capital

  • long-term risk-management scores from MSCI, Morningstar, FactSet, S&P, Reuters'/Refinitiv and Just Capital

  • management quality

  • dividend friendly corporate culture/income dependability

  • long-term total returns (a Ben Graham sign of quality)

  • analyst consensus long-term return potential

It actually includes over 1,000 metrics if you count everything factored in by 12 rating agencies we use to assess fundamental risk.

  • credit and risk management ratings make up 41% of the DK safety and quality model

  • dividend/balance sheet/risk ratings make up 82% of the DK safety and quality model

How do we know that our safety and quality model works well?

During the two worst recessions in 75 years, our safety model predicted 87% of blue-chip dividend cuts during the ultimate baptism by fire for any dividend safety model.
