The numbers are impressive. Over the past 25 years, which includes the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression and two recessions, dividend growers gained more in value by almost twice the average stock and almost eight times better than non-dividend payers!

The same $100,000 invested in a bond fund would have grown to just $378,000, less than half of the dividend growers. Also of note, dividend payers that are not raising their dividends, failed to beat all stocks and just barely outperformed a bond portfolio.

The over performance by dividend growers is true over 5, 10.15 or 20 years. The LVRD Index is diversified among five ETF’s, all of which have a history of owning dividend growers stocks.
