Why Dividend Investing is not a great idea
*Why, as an investor, do you desire a dividend then if you're reinvesting it? The company's financials would be better off and you as the investor would be better off after tax if the company held on to that cash instead of dividending it out. If you're retired or retiring soon, you can decide when to take cash flows and sell portions of the investment as needed.
Dividend-focused investing is sheer lunacy!
