These “Great American Reset” Stocks Will Create Fortunes

Another hand went up. I pointed for the next question. When you consider dividend investments, Brett, what is more important in your opinion: The current yield and value of the stock itself, or The “engine” that is driving the business and the profits? “Great question,” I replied. “The business engine. Always consider where the cash flow is coming from, […]
