I hope everyone had a great New Year's weekend as we got back to

plan to build that long-term wealth we are always harping on. There

retirement years. It's time to get your financial house in order
and get control over your personal finances. If you haven't done
so, please check out the premium
"Learn to Be Rich"
section, which has tons of ideas on how you can save more money,
which can then be put to work in your investment portfolio.
The site is loaded with tons of tools for everyone to ensure
they can build a portfolio that can generate substantial dividend
income. Compound interest is the key to a huge nest egg, and there
is no better way to do so than through dividend-paying stocks.

commodity plays, led by Consol Energy (
), Cliffs Natural Resources (
), and U.S. Steel (
We look forward to another solid year of returns for
