Well, a few months ago we had definite debate on the dividend strategy as being the save all for SWR. Remember - using dividend stocks you would never have to sell and the worst that could happen was that the retiree may have to reduce her spending like a gajillion percent - which wasn't really the SWR rate then Huh?

Well, even the Fool sees some risk in trying to pin down the holy grail of dividend stocks

a good reminder - blend strategies, just like we blend asset classes!!
