    The choice here is clear... income investors are ultra conservative. But you're much better off searching for that one grand slam like AAPL than playing it safe... IMO.
    Not a valid comparison. I'm not arguing for one or the other. I personally only invest in growth stocks right now. But I do understand why some people invest in dividend stocks.



    Your example is like saying if you'd have invested 10K in Bitcoin 20 year ago you'd have made XYZ returns. 20 years ago Apple was a penny stock. Of course if you put 10K into a penny stock thats 25 cents a share and it moons to over $100 a share you'll make a killing.


    There are hundreds of penny stocks right now to choose from. Would you rather put 10K into them or into an established company?

    With dividend stocks and reinvesting. Stock goes up, your value goes up. Stock goes down, your dividend payout can buy more shares which leads to larger payout next quarter. Just mentally seems less stressful.
    Yeah you gotta have the stomach for stocks, not for everyone. Watched my portfolio go from 350k down to 270k in 2020, then back up to 480k like last month (100% in index fund stocks). As long as you don't sell, you're good.

    Return is return, it doesn't matter where it comes from. I'd rather have 15% annual return with 0% dividend yield than 7% annual return entirely from dividend yield. Who cares how much dividends you receive if you aren't retired yet?
    Passive income is still good to have even if you're working. It's extra income that can be used to pursue other things in life. I use my dividends to buy more dividend stocks which in turn increases the amount I get each time I get dividends. See it as a way of not putting all my eggs in one basket i.e. work. Once I start making significant income from dividends (30 000k to 40 000k a year) I can branch off into other sources of passive income or investments. I'm talking real estate and or land. You simply cannot do those things with stocks that pay zero dividends. I'd have to sell those stocks in order to finance those other investments and I'd still need to pay a monthly mortgage using my paycheque.

    My goal has always been to retire early and build a vast revenue stream. I don't care about making 15% returns. I care more about my pocket. Once again we have different goals. You want big returns whilst I want reliable income to supplement my current income. Eventually I want to get into bigger investments using my dividends. I'd say around the age of 27-28, I'll have built a decent dividend income stream to branch off into bigger things. I don't have time to wait until I'm 40 to retire and then dump all the non-dividend stocks and invest in dividend stocks. I ain't paying no capital gains tax to the Feds. Dividends in Canada get a preferential tax rate.

    Let us agree to disagree?
    -Focus on myself crew

    -If you’re not progressing in life, you’re doing something wrong
