I started serious Investing Journey in Jan 2000 to create wealth through long-term investing and short-term trading; but as from April 2013 my Journey in Investing has changed to create Retirement Income for Life till 85 years old in 2041 for two persons over market cycles of Bull and Bear.

Since 2017 after retiring from full-time job as employee; I am moving towards Investing Nirvana - Freehold Investment Income for Life investing strategy where 100% of investment income from portfolio investment is cashed out to support household expenses i.e. not a single cent of re-investing!

It is 57% (2017 to Aug 2022) to the Land of Investing Nirvana - Freehold Income for Life!

Current Dividend Yield is good but avoid falling into potential Dividend Traps (4)

Read? Current Dividend Yield is good but avoid falling into potential Dividend Traps (3)

How to avoid falling into potential dividend trap?

One of good way is to change your view of looking at dividend yield.

Many income and yield chasing investors tend to view dividend yield in this way. So much focus on high dividend yield e.g. 8-10% and less concern on high dividend payout e.g  90%.  Potential capital appreciation is just nice to have.

How about changing your view to this way?

Primarily focus on potential capital appreciation and dividend yield is just the safety net that provides enough cushion if the stock price doesn't appreciate but fall.
