A dividend helps, but it won't make up for the difference in loss of one's stock. You still have to be careful. Oil & gas isn't a good venture at this time. Also, without saying, mining stock & metals. I know from experience. Companies can also forgo their dividends especially when a company needs to balance their costs & maintenance in infrastructure. Don't lose perspective !!
