While dividend growth sounds like a stodgy, old-fashioned approach to investing, the truth is that most dividend growth strategies have kept up with the stock markets advance over the past decade.
That's because they have one huge advantage… Dividends cannot be taken back while price gains can disappear in the blink of an eye.
Take a look at the S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats – companies that have increased their dividends every year for the last 25 years consecutively – for example… They're up 178% over the last decade compared to 226% for the S&;P 500.
But if you reinvested the dividends they paid out, you'd be looking at returns just north of 300%.
