In our modern times, investing has been taken to the nth degree. As modern portfolio theory has exploded, many hedge funds and institutional investors have taken to using some pretty complex ways to get a return. And as long-short, options straddles and other exotic strategies have become more mainstream, retail investors have gotten into the act. The sheer number of liquid alternatives and sophisticated mutual funds, ETFs and separately managed accounts has exploded in recent years.

But maybe even the professionals should stick to something a bit simpler.

It turns out these sorts of sophisticated strategies may not be doing your portfolio any good. In the long run, it might be better just to sit back, buy some dividend stocks and forget about them for a while. Keeping it simple could be the best way to succeed over the longer term.
