Dividends alone don't pay out that much on average. The main value of holding onto stocks is in selling them for more later. Dividends alone are probably not a good reason to buy and sit on stocks.


Look at that. US Stocks with dividends reinvested: 6 million dollars. US Stocks without dividends reinvested: 200 thousand dollars.

Are you saying investors prefer stocks that pay more dividends? That's a different issue. I think there's a misunderstanding here.

My T and GIS beg to disagree.
