Why?

I guess my point was, all else equal, dividends are a signal that the company doesn’t think it can compound retained earnings at attractive rates of return. Of course you’ll DRIP the divs but those are being reinvested at a lower implied rate of return. In a perfect world, I’d prefer to see no divs until I’m ready to harvest my portfolio.

I know this topic does not get talked about much but will eventually impact almost all of us so here goes. I am thinking of retiring (early) and would love recommendations for countries that I can retire to that. Primary factors would be cost if living, safety, warm climate, good health care system, (preferably) close to the US - not a requirement, stable government and laws, diversity in landscape (beach, rivers, mountains). Definitely not super rich so thinking of 5k a month in expenses.
