The Best Dividend Paying Stock Portfolio Brings You 8.71% Yearly Return

Out there are so many stocks that investors can buy and many are very confused about the fundamentals and data overflow. They may ask themselves, "What dividend stocks should I buy?" You can follow so many stock buying approaches like the Dividend Aristocrats, or Dogs of the Dow Jones. You can follow ETFs or cover a simple index of dividend stocks to buy those that have outperformed the market. Not all of these strategies are of success. Today, I like to show you what kind of profit you could make by buying dividend stocks and holding them over a very long period. I selected a portfolio of 24 best dividend-paying stocks with a well-diversified product portfolio.

Over the past 10 years, stocks from the portfolio grew in average by 148.48% including dividends. This represents an annualized return of 8.71%. Not much but enough for beating inflation and increasing your private wealth.

Here is the link to the portfolio: Best Dividend Paying Stocks Portfolio.
