Look, there are two strategies being fought over here lately - dividends vs. growth.

I'm a proponent that growth stocks are simply better because you can pick ones that offer a good risk/reward ratio.

Dividend stocks are great, but to get the kind of gains I get with growth stocks, I'd have to spend a lot of time on that portfolio, which I don't want to do. And I just don't trust titles with a 20% dividend, don't get mad at me.

What do you think about this? 🧐 I respect anyone who goes pure divi investing because I know I wouldn't give it a go. 😀


I see a certain "security" in divi shares but again, from my point of view, you need millions of capital to make some interesting numbers... The fact that I barely make enough a year from dividends to feed an average dinner in one person's house doesn't really bother me and unfortunately my portfolio doesn't have the "power" for a bigger parade yet :)

And that's where I see the problem - most investors don't have enough money to make dividends make sense

It would be great if someone would be a little more open about it... for example, in what amounts the portfolio has and what is the real return there... because it's obviously not just in my head and we perceive it similarly :)

I understand and agree with you in part. I try to have a portfolio composed of dividend stocks, value stocks and growth stocks.

That's a sensible strategy

For me, I guess so, but everyone has different goals and a different approach.

I mean, everybody's got it differently.

And why not have both?

Well, it depends on how one wants to spread out one's portfolio

So it depends on who is a capable investor 😀 Some people can't afford to take risks, some people can't take risks, and some people are good at it. I'm all for a mix of both while I'm young, but over time I'll be steering it towards safer stocks, so dividend stocks mostly.

I understand and agree - dividends only make sense to me if it throws me some nice money each month, not 400 crowns.

I'm a proponent of a strategy that meets my investment approach and delivers me sufficient yield;) I hope I don't go back to splitting wrong/right stocks based on whether they pay/do not pay a dividend.

I understand, I don't split stocks accordingly either, but I feel like a lot of people would rather take a zero growth stock with a 4% divi than a growth stock that delivers that 10-12% a year like it's nothing.
