    Read This Div Formula...Thoughts...

    Read this on another MB and thought it made a bit of sense...Here's what the guy said...

    If he held a stock/fund/bond/et al and the pps accumulation was equal to 3 yrs of dividends (after he paid the LT/ST Cap Gains) he would be a seller of that dividend paying investment...

    There are a bunch of ways to look at this esp with everyone (or almost everyone) still licking their wounds from Q408/Q109 crash, it might make some sense...lots of dividend stocks lost tons of value and slashed/discontinued their dividend so its a double whammy on shareholders...

    Does anyone have any thoughts on what they personally do/feel with a core holding if the pps of the divy paying investment "gets way ahead of itself" or just flat out performs its peers pps wise...?...TIA...

    • overlay the assumption that growth has been cancelled, and there are fewer alt's to make money than ever. BTW lots of dividend vehicles have stopped paying. the number of equities that still pay is way down. the number of retirees looking for income type funds/preferreds/stocks is going up.

      sometimes my dividend capture strategies work. sometimes i should just hold on to what i've got....
