Plan to start invest local market with my SRS. For local market, should look at dividend instead of capital growth? What should be considered for dividend stock?

Is stock or REIT better for dividend? Or what is the factor to decide which to choose?
Aside from dividend yield, cash flow, etc, what are other factors/figures to consider when picking dividend stock or REIT?
Are there any ETFs to be considered?
What do you invest in with SRS?

What are your thoughts?

If considering dividend investing, I would use cash instead since dividends received from SRS investment as it would be credited to the SRS account, subjected to taxation upon withdrawal. The local market has rather lacklustre performance compared to other countries, hence not very ideal if the risk tolerance allows for higher risk investments.

Personally, I would go with a roboadvisor for investment in overseas markets.
