With dividend strategies, you never sell shares to generate income. But you do sell shares. You replace stocks when the dividend quality declines. You replace stocks on occasion to improve the quality of your holdings.

So, your strategy amounts to:
"Buy good stocks. When one ceases to be a good stock, sell it and buy another good stock. Occasionally, sell a not-so-good stock and replace it with a good stock."

Why am I not impressed?
