still so popular among many retail investors as cash flow strategy even though there is no immediate need for cash. Who is deemed to be better in capital allocation of excess cash flow from business profits? You or your trusted Management and BOD of your invested companies? Think retained earning and dividend payout ratio! Think longer term e.g 1X or XX years Find you own answer.
