Market Timing and Dividend Yields

DividendsJust wanted to share a Marketwatch column on using dividend yields as an investing market timing methodology.

It isn't as sexy as timing $NDX buys and sells. But look at the yields over time. I think it is worth consideration.

Of course this strategy has done well in a decade plus of bear markets. And maybe it works less well or growth rebounds in the next decade plus. That sort of thing happens and keeps us all a bit off balanced.

Still, I think it is worth consideration.
