Thank you for your post, it was excellent advice,
(and well taken).
Before I found Bogleheads I was studying investing.
I studied Ronald Read (The Janitor Next Door) (My favorite),
Warren Buffett & Kevin O'Leary. All 3 of these people are
dividend investors. Something clicked in my brain & I
understand what they are doing & why.
Then I found Bogleheads and Jack Bogle & index funds.
I thought to myself what a perfect mix of investments.
Low cost index funds with a dividend approach to the markets.
Believe it or not, both approaches to the market are very similar.
Index funds, buy & hold, long term investing, low cost, don't trade,
buy the haystack (index), don't peak at your statements, etc. I really
don't look at value stocks, growth stocks or factors. I look at dividends.
Dividends are paid by both value & growth stocks. I do really like
quality stocks (a factor). It all kind of mixes together. I feel 100%
comfortable with the dividend approach.
Here is a clip from my favorite investor. He is very motivational to me.
Enjoy... and thank you once again.
