Also, in USA (I don't think that's where Sander is, but for others) short-term capital gains are more heavily taxed than long-term (to encourage investment, I guess).

Back when I started investing many years ago, I just looked at the Berkshire Hathaway holdings, found subsets of that I felt comfortable with, then purchased those companies. Figured if it's good enough for Warren Buffett, it oughta be good enough for me.

Just let the dividends plow back into buying more. I think I've done reasonably well over the years. Like Sander, I've only invested extra money, so I don't track returns that closely.

My goal is someday to live on the dividends (i.e., start taking them as cash instead of reinvesting). We'll see.
