Introduction What if I told you that using an index such as The SPDR S&P 500 Index Trust (SPY) was not a great idea for Dividend Growth Investors?
What if I told you that The Perfect Portfolio stocks that were purchased in 2009, 2010, and 2011, in $100k increments, produced more dividend income than the SPY?
Let’s Take A Look In 2009, I purchased 10 stocks to create an income stream for my mother. She had been using CDs to supplement her income, and when interest rates dropped in 2008-2009, we needed to develop a strategy to replace that income.
As each CD matured, we bought a basket of Dividend Growth Stocks that were intended to provide us with significant income over what we could get with CDs and at the same time give us annualized increases in the amount of dividend income that the portfolio would produce.
These are the basket of stocks that we bought, each year, with the dividend income for each basket, by year owned, through 2016.
The first basket of stocks gave us $46,080.87 in dividend income since it was created.
The second basket of stocks, bought in 2010, gave us $36,343.31 in dividend income since it was created.
The third basket of stocks, bought in 2011, produced $26,292.98 in dividend income since it was created.
In all, the stocks held in The Perfect Portfolio produced a total dividend income of $108,687.26
