IQ Trends is not a trading strategy or a Buy-List, and it’s not a “hold-forever” strategy either. IQT helps its subscribers to select and maintain investment portfolios with your personal preferences and risk tolerance in mind. Our successful newsletter with its tools and philosophies has been helping subscribers build wealth since 1966.
At Investment Quality Trends, our mission is to provide investors the research, analysis and tools to identify high-quality, blue-chip stocks and to know when they offer good value. This is the information you need to make informed buy, sell and hold decisions about stocks for your portfolio.
We identify and analyze the top 300 dividend-paying stocks for Undervalue (our buying discipline) and Overvalue (our selling discipline) prices and publish detailed statistical information twice a month, categorizing the stocks with Buy, Sell, Hold, and Ignore recommendations.
While our approach to investing is simple, it is logical, low-risk and consistently profitable. Our approach has also earned the highest rankings from The Hulbert Financial Digest for risk-adjusted returns and the respect of the global- investing community as the independent source for timely information on the top dividend-paying stocks.

As we all know there are only two ways to earn money in the stock market -- dividends or price appreciation.
The simple fact is that the top dividend-paying stocks provide a cushion of safety in a turbulent market environment and most particularly, when stock prices start going down. The top dividend-paying stocks also tend to trade between distinct high-yield (undervalue) and low-yield (overvalue) price areas, which identify where investors should buy and sell. In addition to providing income and safety, the top dividend-paying stocks show investors when to buy, sell, or hold according to historically repetitive patterns of dividend yield!
But be careful! The top dividend-paying stocks doesn’t mean the highest-yielding stocks. The top dividend-paying stocks are the highest quality dividend-paying stocks, which have long track records of profitability, at least 25 years of uninterrupted dividends with a consistent pattern of increasing dividends, liquidity, institutional sponsorship, and managerial competence.
The "Greater Fool Theory" states that I'm going to buy a stock and sell it at a higher price to a greater fool than I.

The Hulbert Honor Roll is not the only way of slicing and dicing our performance data, but I do urge you to give it serious consideration.
Newsletters that have been on past years’ Honor Rolls have, on average, proceeded to outperform other services that did not make the grade. But I would urge you to pay close attention to the Honor Roll even if the newsletters on it didn’t end up outperforming those that do not. That’s because the “slow-and-steady” Honor Roll newsletters are least likely to be ones that you stop following at inopportune times.
That’s important, since the key to long-term success is actually following a strategy through thick and thin. It doesn’t do you any good to follow an adviser with a good rating if you dump him when the markets move against you.
