Our holding power in term of money will ease our heartache while receiving doses of Panadols during bad times and smiling during good times and giving us the right to brag during CNY gathering among friends and relatives - "I told you to invest! You no listen" 2) Our yield on investment cost e.g. high single digit or double digits dividend yield on cost During good times in our FIRE, FIRe or retirement phase; we can't live off those paper gains in our investment portfolio; but during bad times; we will still be receiving dividends but just smaller! What is our true holding power across volatile market cycles? Money or yield?
