Barron's Perfect Timing Again

I have a copy of the current issue of Barron's which is a weekly financial newspaper published by Dow Jones.

Barron's has an uncanny nack for picking the worst possibly time to cover a story.

This issue's cover is about the best 25 dividend funds, REALLY?!?!

In past blogs here and at How The Investment Business REALLY Works and How Boomers Should Invest NOW, I have discussed how the infatuation with dividend stocks is getting dangerous.  I have said in the past that stock dividends are NOT a replacement for fixed income investments.  I have said that stockbrokers and financial advisors will blindly follow the lemmings over the cliff with your money!

So Barron's perfect timing strikes again (in my opinion) probably picking the top for dividend funds and dividend paying stocks with their cover and article.
