Just to give you an opposite view, here is an article from seeking alpha that extolls the worthlessness of dividends and how they do not add to your net worth (WHAT??????) Yes, that what this author states! LOL
The dividend itself is meaningless to your net worth, or even possibly detrimental if we take taxes into account, but let's not open that can of worms. If you want, or need, the cash flow that dividends provide, I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that. I'm just pointing out that dividends play no part in your profitability, and I hope that understanding this makes you a more informed investor.
I guess I just don't know anything about investing since I am dumb enough to buy dividend paying stocks. ;-)
