>>>While both market investors and DOGS need a strong economy, DOGS claim to have the ability to cherry pick the market.<<<
Dogs claim only a good chance at beating market averages over the long term.
>>><< First, many scientifically literate people also believe this [environmentalism]. (There is valid reasoning on both sides of this argument.)>>
This answer does not surprise me given your willingness to trust correlation without ESTABLISHING cause.<<<
I have no such willingness. If you wish to discuss this particular environmental issue further, we should do so offline.
>>><<But thus far you have not refuted a single one of the reasons behind the Dow theory, you've only said they don't exist.>>
>DOG advocates are asserting a positive claim and thus are obligated to prove they are right since one cannot, logically, prove a negative.<<<<
Hey, *I* am not the one who started this thread!<g> The reasons why the Dow Dividend approach may be successful (as well as arguments against it) are laid out in the Motley Fool Investment Guide. I find it humorous that you choose not to refute a single one of those reasons.
