Too bad I don't have any cash available to take advantage of some of the buying opportunities out there in dividend-land. Hopefully things stay depressed long enough to free up some cash.

Separately (though related), this slide only confirms my reasons for getting out of the growth mutual fund investing strategy. My funds tanked and as such if I needed that cash, any sell now would disproportionately affect growth in the future. My dividends, however, are still there.
