Relying only on dividends payout

Anyone here who invests solely to receive dividends only and without any interest in capital appreciation?

Looking into buying a blue chip share lot and sit on it for the dividends payout. Is such strategy ill-advised?

Not looking to be an active stock trader.

Edit: some serious typos.

Not solely, but I built a dividend-focused portfolio thanks to reading AK and other Singapore bloggers.

Remember though - dividend payments result in the company's stock price being adjusted down accordingly. Meaning you are in a sense relying on the stock's price appreciation to maintain or increase the paper value of your holding.

Thanks for the reply! Don’t mind can explain your 2nd para? Does it mean the share price drops by $X on the day where the dividend of $X is paid out?

I have about $15k to spare for investment. I don’t need to access this $15k anytime soon but it’s not an amount I am willing to write off either.

I was wondering if I should take a portion of this to invest in either ES3 or D07... First time dipping my hands into risk based investment.

for those lousy, and more passive type of small retail investors like me, can just go search from SGX ETF screener...

https://www2.sgx.com/securities/etf-screener

set classification to: EIP
(exclude SIP as those are synthetic/swap etf)

the yield is about 0.47% to 6.30%

but also note that ETFs are not much safer than directly investing into blue chips, the ETF fund managers could collapse. Anyway, most EIP ETFs are non-leveraged and should have something left if collapsed...


(BTW: I just found the D07 you are look at is SIP ETF)

I am also a dividend investor. My target holding period for stocks/ETFs is forever as I plan to rely only on dividends, so capital gains is not as important as company earnings which are used to pay dividends!

Every year I seek to increase the amount of dividends collected! Looking forward the end of the year when I can finally calculate how much I managed to increase my dividends in 2019.

Currently I am able to cover my basic survival expenses with my dividends and slowly working my way to the next stage!
