The dividend paying stocks are really not worth owning unless you have more money than you know what to do with. Back in April a player filed a bugs report about not receiving any dividends on TMI in 467 days to which Ched replied:

This dividend has been given out 5,274 times since the start of 2011. You're just unlucky.
So, if we do a bit of math on this, there are 12,072,824,444 total shares outstanding on TMI and you need 6 million shares for a benefit block so theoretically there could be 2,012 benefit blocks but we know there are folks that own more than 6 million shares, so lets conservatively estimate there are 1000 benefit blocks. When Ched says the beginning of 2011, I assume he means when the stock update took place which as I recall was April of 2011, so the time period we are talking about is two years. Based on this scenario the average TMI holder has received FIVE dividends over two years. I think a TMI dividend is about 37 million? So, based on this you would receive on average 92.5 million per year and a block costs about 900-950 mil, so roughly a 10% annual return.
