No regular reader would be surprised by my statement. I thought today might be a good opportunity to take a look at why I’m a big fan of dividend investing as a long term investing strategy. I’ve already explained why I’m convinced that dividend investing will not fade away anytime soon. Sure, moves like the proposed Obama tax increase could cause a slowdown (even though others disagree) but I still think that it’s as effective of a longer term strategy as you can find. Even better, it’s relatively simple to get started with it.
