While we strive for excellence, we acknowledge that we’re human and can make mistakes. Should you feel that we’ve not lived up to these standards, we encourage you to contact us via email.
On Opinionated Analysis: Our contributors are selected for their deep understanding of the financial markets and are encouraged to share their informed viewpoints. Although most, if not all, are not traditional journalists, they aim to enlighten, educate, and engage our readers.
Dominating Dividends doesn’t claim to offer unbiased content in the way journalists do. Instead, we focus on providing thoughtful insights and informed opinions based on our contributors’ experiences and analyses. Unless specified otherwise, the content on our site reflects the individual authors’ opinions.
On Diverse Perspectives: It’s not uncommon for our contributors to have differing opinions on the same stock. We publish these varying viewpoints to offer our readers a comprehensive understanding of a stock’s potential. We value this diversity of thought, believing it enriches our readers’ investment strategies.
Our writers may sometimes challenge conventional thinking or push back against the status quo. These contrarian perspectives are intended to provoke thought and broaden our readers’ investment considerations. We always aim for respectful discourse and encourage our writers to update their analyses in light of new information.
On Content Integrity: The content on Dominating Dividends is a blend of author opinions, factual reporting, and analytical commentary. The views expressed herein are solely those of the author and are subject to the Dominating Dividends Publishing Guidelines.
On Ownership Disclosures: Our writers, being avid investors themselves, may have stakes in the financial markets. Recognizing the potential for bias, we mandate full disclosure of any personal holdings in the securities they cover. This transparency ensures our readers can consider any potential bias when evaluating our content. Our editorial team is similarly bound by strict rules to prevent their personal investments from influencing their editorial guidance.
Securities within mutual funds or ETFs are exempt from our disclosure requirements.
On Trading Restrictions: To prevent conflicts of interest, our contributors cannot engage in trading any securities they discuss for 72 hours following the publication of their article.
On Investment Advice: Dominating Dividends provides information, opinions, and insights to assist in investment decision-making, but we do not offer personalized investment advice. Our broad-reaching platform is not designed to cater to individual financial situations.
On External Compensation: Our writers are compensated for their contributions but are strictly forbidden from accepting additional compensation to sway their opinions on any securities featured on our site.
On Penny Stock Coverage: Dominating Dividends typically focuses on companies with a market capitalization exceeding $100 million to avoid the pitfalls of market manipulation often associated with “penny stocks.” On the rare occasion that we cover a smaller-cap company, we will include a clear disclaimer outlining the risks and our usual coverage policy.
On Sources and Facts: We expect our writers to cite primary sources and statistics directly. Whenever our writers refer to work from another organization, we make sure to provide a link to that organization’s work. If our writers make claims about market trends, we ask them to include a link to the source whenever possible.
We encourage our readers to reach out to the editors of DominatingDividends.com directly if they find errors or other factual inconsistencies.
On Proper Attribution: Our writers are instructed to provide proper attribution and links to original sources when quoting or referencing other work. When direct linking is not possible, such as with private research notes, the source will still be explicitly named.
On Plagiarism: We maintain a strict policy against plagiarism. Although we may have agreements to share content with various publishing partners, we always ensure to either obtain permission or provide explicit credit before using someone else’s work.
On Utilizing Primary Sources: Recognizing the vital role financial media plays for investors, we ensure that information from primary sources is incorporated accurately and responsibly, either through direct quotes or paraphrasing, always with appropriate attribution.
By adhering to these guidelines, we aim to be a trusted source of financial insight and analysis for our readers.
