  • Very true, that's why buying DIA, an ETF that mimics the DJIA, makes sense for long term (10 years or longer) "buy & hold" investors.

    There is a lot less risk, albeit with less potential return, in holding a basket of 30, old, tired, giant cap, dividend paying stocks than making wild speculative bets on individual "growth" stocks.

    If you had owned DIA over the last year (12/31/2010 to 12/30/2011) your total return would have been 7.9%.
