Last month in my dividend income update, I wrote “as an investor, I should never lose sight of the risks direct stock ownership can mean.”
How true, because active money management comes with more risks than other types of investing. Unlike indexing for example, I’ll never be able to entirely set and forget my dividend investing approach but I really don’t mind. Dividend investing takes some active work, work I enjoy for now but the dividends certainly don’t take any effort. Dividend investing continues to be a great complement to my indexing products.
