I recently commented on an article of the 'Top Dividend Stocks for 2024' by MoneySense, but the prior year's 'total' returns were mediocre (~12%) to abysmal (~2%). I endorse your view that 'total' return should be the focus and not just cashflow (i.e., income/dividends/yield), and my approach providing from 20% to 39% annually. I prefer dividend stocks with sustained above-average capital appreciation (> 10%) and reasonable dividend growths over the prior year and years. I am willing to accept lower dividend yields for higher capital appreciation, kinda like the forest is growing faster and producing more fruit! With Einstein's 8th Wonder of the World, "compounding", it doesn't take long to start reaping the greater benefits!
