Hey Fools!
Since 1985 I have been invested in 90% Div. Stocks and 10% Non-Div. Stocks. During ups and downs, those dividend checks ($$$) just keep coming in regardless of the market averages. These types stocks are usually large cap stocks and generally "defensive," and they don't get slammed as hard either in market pull-backs. When you are in non-dividend issues, you just get slammed down in a market pull-back (without dividend earnings) and hope the issues rebound so you can sell at a non-loss. I'll stay with the Div. stocks thank you and enjoy the growth of reinvestment through "Long Term Investing."
