like your reasoning. I agree with you but can't 100% agree with you.

If you want to bend your portfolio to dividends why not try one of the WisdomTree funds. Ultimately, the gap in your assessment will be whether or not you think your stock picking can consistently outperform the dividend etf vs what is the value of the time you spent doing so. Depending on how much time your portfolio management takes, you would probably be better off investing in something like DEW or VIG (something LIKE it, not necessarily that one) because you will end up with almost indistinguishable results as long as you keep reinvesting monthly.

I actually sat down and calculated by how much I would have to outperform to justify active vs passive management and fell on the side of passive indexing, so your article was particularly fun to read. ( _http://seekingalpha.com/article/1325651-opportunity-costs-matter)

Stay the course
