Dividend income, asset allocation, and risk avoidance are the cornerstones of Jim Woods’ Intelligence Report. Jim’s winning strategy – focusing on companies that raise dividends year in and year out — is strong enough to weather down-market cycles and still profit handsomely in up-market cycles.
Intelligence Report features a balanced portfolio “Master List” of mutual funds, ETFs, MLPs (Master Limited Partnerships), and commodity and metals recommendations for portfolio protection. Additionally, Jim’s “Income Multipliers” include broad exposure to financials, energy & utilities, consumer staples, telecom, information technology and more.
