Remember, its not just about dividends. However, a growth stock PLUS a decent dividend works well for the long haul. If a stock grows at 4% and pays a divident of 3.5%, you have an annual increase of 7.5%. Reinvest the dividents (unless you need the capital) and the growth over time is even better. The more solid the stock, the less long term volitility. Are there other ways to invest, sure. Do what makes you most comfortable.

Why stick with the Dow stocks? There are plenty that pay more but aren't Dow.

The comment posted that it is not only about dividends is right on target. Whether a stock pays dividends or yields capital appreciation does not really matter(putting tax considerations aside for a minute). However, what is nice about dividends is that you get the cash. A company that pays a 5% dividend in 10 years have given you back one half of your investment back. This could help from market downturns assuming you did not reinvest the cash in the same stock.

Also, a diversified portfolio is still the most important way to protect your investments.

Are we back to bad news being good? Crappy jobs report this morning, crappy economy, and we are up triple digits, don't get us wrong, no complaints, but we were sure scumbags would be doing their thing early and often today however, the good guys are prevailing....No reason to get too excited though, still a long hour to go and we all know how these manipulators act....More after the close.
