    70k could be the deposit for 3 houses with a rental income of £750 per month (at the lowest). Do people dividend invest because it is more passive than property? Is it just a place to store money till you can purchase a property?

    How'd you have $8,000 available to invest in one month? How long did it take you to reach $70k?

    Your General Electric (pick) , is why I only invest in ETFs ! All kidding aside you have some great ones for sure. I believe personally for long term investing , 10 years or more , that good etfs are the way to go !

    I dont understand why invest $72,000 into dividend paying stocks…to only get $1,700 total yearly….i much rather spend $72,000 into Amazon, netflix, apple, Google and tesla!

    Dude I've always seen your thumbnails, for some reason I didn't click on a single video of yours. And now I realize I regret it, by how transparent and cool you are.

    $1,783 in dividends on a $71K portfolio is 2.51% per year, which is okay, but it could easily be more. His argument for selecting his div. stocks is that they have upside price movement potential. My question is why doesn't he realize that some higher dividend stocks also have higher upside potential? It is well known that dividend stocks move up more than non-div. stocks. Does anyone know of a study that shows that higher div. stocks grow faster?

    In April, Boeing announced to investors to not expect to see a dividend for 3-5 years.

    I worked for Lowe's when I was younger and invested in their stock program. I've only got about 200 shares, but it is by far the best stock I own right now. Holding for life!

    My goal in life is to just not have to work. I have just started new job at £9 an hour and my salary will be at LEAST £15k a year so I want to save and invest 10k every year, ideally put it into dividend stocks for the next 10 years. My girlfriend will also be saving 5k a year from her job so after 10 years we’ll have £150k principal saved up, and the total interest gained over those 10 years works out to be £45k (not including the dividends that I would have been getting the whole time. So altogether I will have roughly £200k, which at 6% interest will be growing by £12k a year which I could live on but I suppose at that point it’s my choice to keep pushing or not

    I still don't understand why dividend investing is so popular among people 30 and under. If you are having a long run view of investing, you should be investing in growth or just a basic sp500 etf/mutual fund. It makes sense to dividend invest if you are like 40-50 years old.

    i was a dividend growth investor. i'm quickly converting to selling option premium though.

    A comment about IBM: the people I know that work in IT have told me that IBM's cloud is absolutely terrible and the better play for the cloud would be AMZN or MSFT. IBM has about 5% market share while AMZN has about 39%. Something to be aware of.

    2.5%? That is pretty weak return, at 71K you could be pulling exponentially more return. To each his own, but this is not a dividend portfolio. This is a growth portfolio that has returns.

    I think selling and paying income tax rather than capital gains in the future is really shooting yourself in the foot for some of these airline stocks that you bought at a really good value.

    Well your investment of $71,000 is certainly doing a lot better than the bank interest rate like 1/2 of 1%. And yet the banks are acting like their measly interest rate is high and generous. There are a lot of good dividend paying companies out there. You just have to have the stomach to ride the ups and down. I like Verizon and AT&T for their solid dividends. They maybe slow movers, but the dividend payout is steady.

    Thank you for sharing so many details of your position! I bought JETS ✈️ during the dip too! 🌟(I plan to hold it long term) and I didn’t wanna put too much either because everything is uncertain. I am also cautious about the major index funds price which seem overpriced.

    Opened my eyes to a few great dividend stocks added to my watch list. I'll be buying the dip for a healthy discount in the future. Thanks Ryan!
