The thing that scares me about stocks and bonds is my lack of control. It's too much like gambling for me.@WJK Thanks man, but the dividends only make up a small portion of the portfolio's total return. The portfolio has also gained about $12,000 this year due to capital appreciation alone. The reason I don't pay much attention to this number is that I don't intend to sell my shares, so the capital appreciation is kind of irrelevant to me. It's the actual dividend income that I will be using to help fund my lifestyle in the future.
