Why do I believe dividend stocks to be the best? Compound interest. Stable companies such as P&G, GE (which I currently own) and perhaps Verizon often have great dividend %'s. Even if the stock stays at the same price (and these bigger stable stocks tend to grow annually) the healthy dividend lets you buy more of their stocks, which increases the dividend $ you get, which lets you buy more stocks, etc.
So what kind of account do you intend to put your investments into? Tax-deferred accounts? Taxable accounts? If dividends are no longer "qualified" but become taxed as ordinary income, what will that do to your forecast? What if income tax rates go up?
I'm not trying to give you a hard time; I'm trying to make you see all the variables so you can think it through and reach your own conclusions.
