    "Additionally, free cash flow and dividends are critical elements in sustained investment success."

    "Earning interest on your interest and dividends on your dividends by reinvesting them can make your investments grow exponentially over long periods of time. According to our calculations, since 1970, around 65% of your total return if you’d been invested in developed-market equities would have been driven by the compounding of dividends."


    Some wise words to think about. 65% is enormous. Where is it possible to find long term accumulation charts instead of price alone? Thanks for the link too @twisted strategies

    REMEMBER THE OBLIGATORY WARNING

    past performance is no ( reliable ) indicator of future performance

    even ' set and forget ' needs you to look and think say , every 6 months

    that doesn't automatically mean sell or buy but look around and see if any new cash to be invested has a nice opportunity ), it might only be a stray $1,000 but sometimes that opportunity can amaze you ( just you remember to take some cash off the table when in crazy profit )
