Simulations with high dividends
I recently built a buy search and sell criteria that would buy high dividend stocks. When I reviewed the "Log" I noticed that the "Log" was not picking up the dividends. I understand that VectorVest does not know when the dividends are either "paid for the record date" or "actually paid". I recognize that it may be difficult to acquire this information but it would be very useful to add the dividends to both the "Log" and "Return" as they are being "paid for the record". Many of us are quite happy with 10% to 15% total returns per year these days and dividends that are yielding 5% or more certainly make that easier.
