Here's why you don't want companies like Facebook in your retirement portfolio

In a nutshell ... $0 dividends.

Yes, companies like FB are all about the cap gains play. In other words, you need to watch the ticker symbol and keep track of the news, every single week, if you want to be associated with companies which can't give ordinary and predictable dividends.

So yes, a lot of ppl will post that the stock price went from $35/share to $215/share since 2012 but what they don't realize is that since 2008, we haven't had a significant market correction yet.

Now, as I'd stated earlier, if you'd been reinvesting dividends stock throughout your career, you'll have more shares, each and every quarter.

So now, if you have a portfolio worth let's say ~$5M and earn every year, ~2.5% in divs, that's an annual income of ~$125K.

If the market tanks and you invested in companies which maintain their div yields, instead of cutting them, due to poor fiscal management, chances are, your now ~$2.5M post-crash portfolio, is still cutting checks for ~$125K/yr.
