Ari Charney

Ari Charney is the chief investment strategist for Utility Forecaster and Income Millionaire.

Prior to joining Investing Daily, Ari took an unlikely path toward dispensing investment advice. Shortly after graduating with a bachelor’s degree in political science from New York University, Ari sampled some of Wall Street’s best-known brokerages and investment banks for several months as an associate. His favorite memory was being paid an absurdly high hourly wage to point and yell at the bond salesmen on the legendary Bear Stearns trading floor when they had incoming phone calls.

Thereafter, Ari spent a substantial portion of his career at financial industry rating services. First, he pored over spreadsheets at the preeminent bond rating agency Moody’s Investors Service. Later, he analyzed investment newsletters for nearly eight years at The Hulbert Financial Digest (HFD).

While working for the HFD, Ari discovered his passion for helping self-directed investors select the right investment newsletter. Since joining Investing Daily, he’s extended that passion further by guiding investors toward the right securities for their portfolios.

In his free time, he and his wife tote their son along on their ethnic dining adventures in pursuit of the fabled Bosnian burger and the Thai restaurant with the secret Laotian menu.

How Often Do You Want to Get Paid?

by Ari Charney on April 13, 2018

You can build a portfolio that generates monthly income with just a dozen dividend stocks. But there’s another way that gives you even greater control over how much and how often you get paid—and it also helps lower risk too.

Here’s Why Smaller Is Better

by Ari Charney on March 30, 2018

Small-cap stocks are often ignored by Wall Street even though they generate some of the biggest gains. But we like it that way. When the Street ignores a stock, it gives us an opportunity to get in on an emerging growth engine before the rest of the herd follows.

by Ari Charney on March 16, 2018

How to Get Paid to Buy Low

by Ari Charney on February 16, 2018

Reinvestment accounts for about half the market’s long-term return. But it doesn’t make sense to mindlessly reinvest dividends when stocks are trading at absurd valuations. So some flexibility–and a few rules–can give you the best of both worlds: reinvestment plus the cash to use as you see fit.
