The DJIA ended last year (2013) at the 16,576.66 level. The highest the average has gotten so far this year is 16,978.02 and that was an intraday high six business days ago. That's an increase of just 401.36 points, or 2.42%, for the year so far. Not exactly something to write home about. And by this past Friday, 27 June, the average had pulled back about 125 points from that high.
So if you're still one of those investors investing for capital gains, I truly do wish you the very best. You're putting in a tremendous amount of effort for so very little return this year.
You may want to rethink your strategy and consider this idea of dividend growth investing.
