The Real False God Of Dividends – Seeking Alpha

The Real False God Of Dividends – Seeking Alpha: In a recent article, the author stated that he would “…expose dividends for what they really are: a false god.”

The author defined his terms carefully:

[T]he following terms as I define them support my thesis that you don’t make money through a dividend….[I]f you really want your net worth to increase, then I think you have to agree to accept these terms.
