<<SP, why DRIP when you can go with the flow?

You'll be hard pressed to DRIP all that moola into stocks a bit at a time. Why not just invest in some dividend paying stocks and reinvest the dividends? Here's a list, there are other lists but I've found they all basically all cover the same stocks.

When I started buying stocks circa 1980, interest rate were at an all time high, which meant that stock prices were cheap.

Now interest rates are very cheap which means stocks, dividend paying stocks in particular, are correspondingly expensive.

The Fed is hot to raise interest rates which means that stock prices will probably be under pressure for years, perhaps decades to come.

So I need a good reason to put cash into stocks. The only bargains I see are energy stocks, although other beaten down resource stocks could be considered.
