Investors made over 10x in dividend stocks in 20 years; 10 such stocks to consider
Most investors don't like volatility, such as what we are currently seeing in equities, thanks to the local and global cues. But if you want to continue to stay invested in stocks, a good idea to seek stability in your portfolio would be dividend stocks.
Investors usually tend to not pay attention to dividends when market returns are strong — the Sensex has risen at 11.8 percent CAGR over the last 5 years.
Here's the data: If you had invested Rs 100 in dividend-paying stocks 20 years back, and reinvested the dividends received back in the same stocks, your money would have risen by over 10 times. Strip out dividends and your returns were only a little over eight times.
