BruceCM writes,You've got to have them first. No capital gain, no income?All but 5 of my 62 income securities paid me the same or an increasing dividend during the downturn of 2007-2009.And then there's the question of WHEN to sell to realize the capital gains.</snip>If a company has a steadily growing business, it will increase in value over time.No one who owns Berkshire Hathaway is upset because it doesn't pay a dividend, and some like me actually prefer it.If you want to buy a new home or a boat, you can sell a few shares and realize a capital gain. Meanwhile the rest of your investment remains intact without the annual tax consequences of a dividend.intercst
