So one shouldn't wait for an appropriate price to buy a stock, simply purchase the stock of a good company and all will be well? And what of small caps and other stocks where dividends are not really part of the return expected from the investment?



According to Siegel, if you stay away from the high growth stocks (that he says are always priced too high), and buy only the 'tried and the true', you don't have to worry about when you buy it. You just buy and hold it forever, always reinvesting dividends.

This book doesn't talk much about small caps, except to say that they are almost always priced too high.
