If you do, and keep the Dividends as cash, you'll get your money back that you invested or more AND THEN whatever the stock price is will be pure profit. Bashers can't hold, and don't want you to think this way. So if you buy 10,000 shares today, you'll get your 200k back within 15 years and if the stock price is at 12 you'll have made 120k on top of that. If the price is at 30, you'll have made 300k. Easiest long term buy there ever was at these prices.
