Booklist Review

Most books on the stock market simply state the author's investment philosophy along with strategies for implementing the philosophy and examples that demonstrate that it works. In the case of Dividends Don't Lie, Weiss and Lowe argue that the dividend yields of stocks are indicators of whether a stock is over- or under- valued and of the market's general direction. This theory is the basis of Weiss' 25-year-old advisory newsletter, Investment Quality Trends, which the authors claim has consistently predicted stock market ups and downs. Clear examples and intriguing strategies are served up in this guide recommended for larger collections. No index. DAR.


Publisher's Weekly Review

Investment-newsletter publisher Weiss and business journalist Lowe suggest that wealth is an all-but-sure result of investing according to recurring stock market cycles. In their technically detailed, conservative analysis, the authors recommend careful study of high grade issues with steady dividend-increase records. Investors should buy shares when the stock is undervalued in relation to dividend yield, then sell (reinvesting elsewhere) when a bullish trend drives the share price up to an overvalue level. ``Bull markets end when price/yield ratio stands at three percent.'' Analyzing past market movement and individual stock performance in various categoriesindustrials, utilities, food, electronics, etc.Weiss and Lowe make a strong case for their system, but they could have spelled out more extensively the net effect of transaction-related tax consequences and broker-commission costs, considering all the in-and-out activity the system calls for. 20,000 first printing; author tour.
