How much weight should one place on the different sets of stocks?Examples:1) Growth--low dividend, high price appreciation, optional cash purchases allow you to average in with low transaction costs2) Value--fairly valued stock with some price appreciation potential, token dividend in the middle of yield ranges (not low, not high)3) Mature--companies that have been around forever, high dividend yields, low growth but increasing earnings through revenue growth and cost controlI think that if you choose solely on dividend yields, you miss some of the opportunities provided by growth companies such as Intel (div. yield is .13%) or IBM (whose dividen yield is .75%). Abbott Labs and American Express have yields around 1-2%. AT&T, JP Morgan, and SBC have dividend yields in the 3% range and are mature companies.So, thoughts on a mix? Equal between the classes? More heavily weighted in Mature?Look forward to the responses . . .Muad'Dib
