Read next? Dividend Yield is good but avoid falling into potential Dividend Traps

I thinking by reading in this sequence may be better in the thinking process.

I believe there are many bloggers, cboxers, forum particpants and investing kakis telling you that focusing on stock dividends as passive income is an important key to successful investing. Agree, right?

Perhaps, I am the rare blogger who dare to challenge you to rethink your investing strategy of focusing too much on passive income when you have no real need for it at this stage of your long investing journey and especially when you are not expecting to 'retire' from the workforce soon.

  1. Hi CW8,

    Dividend yield is important if you "need" the dividend.

    Else, it is an 'unnecessary' income.

    Nothing in life is 'free', as there is a price to be paid for the dividend, in the form of lower capital appreciation of your stock.

    Just my two cents worth (typical dividend yield).
