I’ve subscribed to countless investing newsletters and The Dividend Machine, AAII and Stock Gumshoe are the only one that I have continued with. I have followed Bill Spetrino’s advice on the The Dividend Machine’s and have made more money from his recommendations than any other newsletter. I have almost always valued the Stock Gumshoe’s articles; however, I’m kind of disappointed that the Stock Gumshoe is not accurately representing the Dividend Machine’s results. You have to be careful to follow his parameters and not invest more than 10% to 15% outside of his conservative recommendations. I bought Herbalife in the low… Read more »

You are picking and choosing which of his picks to follow. Following all of his advice, using his buy prices shown in his newsletter, underperform the market. he has some good picks but he has 40 stocks in his current portfolios and most (more than 20) are lagging the market.

Sorry but there aren’t 20 stocks lagging the market. I follow the dividend machine and have beaten the market every year. You are not looking at when the stock is bought. And your skipping the stocks in the portfolio that are up 500+%. Bill has only sold 2 losing stocks and is up on the market 20+% per year.

Bill was pushing Apple well before the 7/1 split. I bought quite a bit. The dividend keeps increasing and the stock has more than doubled.

I’m extremely happy and thankful for the advice.

I am in the market for the long haul and want to buy stocks with increasing dividends which drive my cost basis down and increases my total number of shares. After 5 or 6 years the growth is really picking up traction as compounding is in full gear.

He pounded the table on KORS and QCOM. He said put 16% of your portfolio into QCOM and it’s down 15% according to his latest newsletter. Average that with Apple and the gain is about 70% while the SP500 is up more than 100% over that time. You are right, he has a few good picks but most of his stocks are not good.

You really need to get your facts straight. Im well over 100% just in Appl, Kors , QCOM, are all up. I only invest in The dividend machine stocks an am beating the market. I also follow his inner circle and am up 88% in 1 year

real subscriber, I have read a number of your posts, and I am beginning to believe that you are not an investor; rather a “picker and chooser” who bets big on a few stocks instead of spreading your investments equally over all of the recommendations that Bill Spetrino makes. If so, your approach has a very high probability of consistently losing. Further, you are particularly “fast and loose” with the facts. You are entitled to your own opinions, but you are not entitled to your own facts. So, post the real performance record of Bill’s Dividend Machine investments and stop… Read more »

I’m still pleased with my Dividend Machine stocks! Bill said to buy Apple pre split and then post split I bought again and again, almost all under $100. I’m ahead by 61% ! So far I have over a dozen stocks recommended by Bill and only 3 are slightly in the red but 1, RIG, being down a bit more. I layered down recently with more shares and will continue to do so to get my cost under $10. so long as RIG remains low as I anticipate. I’m fortunate to have other gains from Bill’s picks, 94%, 141%, 36%… Read more »

The Dividend Machine has literally changed my life. I am up 86% in the last year on the Inner Circle option plays. Apple has been the gift that keeps on giving. Qcom has rebounded, and is fighting off a takeover bid. MU has taken off. So has KORS. So has URBN… I am kicking the crap out of the market thanks to Dividend Machine and Inner Circle.

Spetrino: you said YY proves you’re a genius. Address RIG (40% of the portfolio and down more than 50%), SFUN down more than 40% and CBI down more than 50%. Every trade you closed this year gained less than the market. I would be better off in an index fund. You are lagging the market and that’s the measure of success, not individual stocks but the portfolio. And, SNAP – get real. You research this with your daughter. Read the NY Times or get broker research to learn about companies.

Don’t feed the trolls, folks…that’s all this person is. If you want facts talk to Bill himself or contact Newsmax.

This “Real Subscriber” is a retard.

Why do you defend Spetrino by calling others names? The facts are the facts. He is trying to claim he beat the market. Please call Newsmax and post the numbers they give you. They have them available and they prove the point. This is easy to resolve. And you will see I am 100% right – Spetrino did not beat the market.

realsubscriber, you claim to know so much about performance of the Dividend Machine, so stop all the idle chatter and post Bill Spetrino’s Dividend Machine performance, and be sure to keep it real!! You claim to have the facts, so post them!!!

Real Subscriber, it’s hard to tell what your beef is with Bill but if you look at things a little differently you might find a way to make up your loses if in fact you have them rather than trying to say negative things and everybody thinking you’re trolling him. You say “YY proves you’re a genius”. YY didn’t prove he was a genius. He was a genius long before he recommended YY. Just look at AAPL. (I’m up over 72% this year)! Take a look at MU. I’m 4 points away from 200%!! And QCOM you mention: Up 17%… Read more »

You pick and choose what to do rather than following his advice. Good for you. I follow his advice which is what he provides the newsletter for. Credit where credit is due: His pick in FL is doing great. It’s up 8% today as I write and he advised allocating 4% of the aggressive portfolio to it. He advises 5% in the aggressive portfolio so that 8% gain in the stock added 0.16% to my account. The day’s losses in SNAP, HLF and GILD are more than that in dollar terms when you use his allocation. The S&P 500 is… Read more »

I have subscribed to The Dividend Machine for over 4 years. It is a fantastic newsletter and by following Bill’s advice, I have consistently increased my net worth year after year. This is the only newsletter that anyone needs.

And I should add that I increased my net worth at more than twice what DJ or S&P indexes have grown. If you don’t subscribe to The Dividend Machine, you are missing the boat big time!

Could you prove that with math? His portfolio has NOT beaten the S&P 500. He made a few good picks., a few really bad picks and a lot of okay picks that lagged the market. Please state the returns of his portfolio with numbers rather than hyperbole.

Why is it that when I ask for portfolio performance numbers everyone goes quiet? You are all quick to call me names but no one ever says “I called customer service and you are correct. Spetrino has not delivered portfolio returns that beat the market and if you follow what he says you will be behind the market.”

I have subscribed to Bill’s Dividend Machine for several years and his is one of the very best I have found. His recommendations are overwhelmingly successful and he has an uncanny pulse on the markets which usually makes for excellent entry and exit points. Sure, he’s had a couple of dogs, but if you follow his investment allocations you’ll be way ahead of the game and the S&P500!
