Matt Hibbard is Money Morning’s income specialist.
With nearly three decades in the markets, Matt has traded just about every asset class there is. The one thing that has stuck with him over this time is a very simple premise. That is, it’s the cash a company generates that ultimately determines its value.
Sure, some stocks might fly away to multi-digit gains. But unless these companies can convert the ‘story’ into real money, the market will eventually find them out. And when that happens, the share price quickly falls back to Earth.
That’s why, over at Total Income, Matt is on the hunt for the next generation of dividend-payers. Stocks that should be able to pay their shareholders reliable and rising dividends into the future.
Matt is also the editor of Options Trader, where he shows subscribers how to use basic options strategies to generate income. This is income they can generate on top of regular dividend payments.
Matt doesn’t play the prediction game, where the aim is to be proven ‘right’. Instead, his goal is to generate as much income as he can for his subscribers, irrespective of whether the market is going up or down.

Speculation about whether Australia’s property market is in a bubble never goes away. But, as we noted, it all depends on where you live.
Barely a day goes by without yet another call for the great Australian property ‘bubble’ to burst. Of course, not everyone thinks it’s a bubble.
The idea is that you focus on a sector or a finite list of stocks. These are stocks that you understand, getting to know how they tick.
Get it wrong in either of these sectors, let alone both, and it’s almost impossible to beat the market.
Beating the Australian share market is possible, because there are always some managers who do it. But it’s much harder than it looks.
