    Larry,

    Sure, academic papers analyze past results in aggregate. I don't invest in aggregate however.

    "Now you would think if dividends mattered someone would have figured that out and created a model to show it. "

    Why would anyone in the financial industry create a model which might encourage investors to do it themselves and avoid the financial industry?

    Larry,

    "in aggregate active investors lose to a risk-adjusted benchmark and there's no persistence of outperformance"

    Who cares about the aggregate?

    All passive index investors will lose to any risk-adjusted benchmark after fees and expenses. Let's call it what it is, a persistence of underperformance.

    "Try VESWX - Vangaurd Every Stock in the World Index "

    Most index funds don't contain every stock in the index, they just use sampling methods.

    Hah, sure. If it worked well, excellent.

    I prefer to sell on my own terms, however and not have to sell in down markets.

    " I guess it boils down to individual goals, thanks again "

    Indeed it does. Everyone has different goals, and that gets lost in all the shooting.
