A lot of investors find themselves encountering severe emotional shifts with the fluctuations that come with stock market investment. In addition, uncertainty may seriously surprise and hit you when suddenly prices drop while elation sets hearts racing with sprightliness when prices rise.
However, people who prefer to invest in long-term dividends stocks, won’t experience the same anxiety as stock prices fluctuate. I can perhaps count myself to be in this category. I haven’t sold any position in last month or so, since dow lost 1000 points in a day. In fact, I bought CocaCola and Johnson and Johnson stocks. They both have consistent dividend paying record over many years.
From the mindset of dividend investors, they are aware that the success of their financial investment is not hinged on the inconsistencies of the market itself, but rather on the long-range prosperity of the company. It’s a historical fact that the dividend, as well as the stock price, will sooner or later ascend, in the long run, resulting in considerable growth over a long period of time.
