Most educated people don't play the lottery, believing it a fool's game. That is not quite true, as finding winning stocks just 33% of the time is enough to "hit the lotto."
If you’re worried about inflation or another financial crisis wrecking your investments (and there’s a good chance you are), the “no brainer” decision for you is to own elite, dividend-paying businesses.
Amateur investors often bring up a common objection to buying elite dividend-paying businesses. Acting on this objection often leads them into very risky investments.
Elite, dividend-paying companies like McDonald's and Coca-Cola allow you to harness the most powerful investment force on the planet. This force is called “compounding.”
Most folks are obsessed with short-term gratification. These people are always busy trying to get the market to do something for them... instead of using the greatest power in all of investing.
