I’ve been using the dividend growth investing strategy for a decade. And it’s performed magic. Despite growing up on welfare, not having a college degree, and never having a high-paying job, I retired in my early 30s.

How’d I do it? I took the savings from my very regular car dealership day job and invested it into high-quality dividend stocks. These are stocks that represent equity in world-class businesses. And these stocks pay safe, growing dividends.

It’s these safe, growing dividends that I now live off of. But it’s not just dividends. Dividend investing sometimes gets a bad rap, as if these stocks are boring and don’t grow. Well, that’s just not true.

Many high-quality dividend growth stocks grow at incredible rates and beat the market. That shouldn’t be surprising. Most of the S&P 500’s long-term total return comes from the compounding of reinvested dividends. And today, I’m going to show you five dividend growth stocks that turned a $1,000 investment in each into more than $1 million after 30 years.

Let me set the stage here.

I’m talking about investing just $1,000 into each of these five dividend growth stocks from March 1991 to March 2021. You reinvested dividends along the way but otherwise didn’t invest new money. All you had to do after that point was let these five businesses go to work for you and compound your wealth and passive dividend income. Also, I’m not cheating here by starting this time period before these stocks were paying out growing dividends.

Each one of these stocks were sporting measurable dividend growth track records at the time. So this isn’t getting in before the growing dividends start rolling in and supposedly slow things down.

And I’m going to show you just how much growth is possible with some of these stocks.

First up, Target (TGT).

This stock turned a single $1,000 investment into slightly over $204,000 between March 1991 and March 2021. Yeah, there’s some growth there. The annualized total return is almost 20%.

Next up is Parker-Hannifin (PH).

It turned $1,000 into over $104,000 between March 1991 and March 2021. The annualized total return is over 16%. That’s the best kind of boring I’ve ever seen.

The next dividend growth stock I want to tell you about Sherwin-Williams (SHW).

This high-quality dividend growth stock turned a $1,000 investment into just under $118,000 between March 1991 and March 2021. The annualized total return comes in at over 17%.

The next stock is American States Water (AWR).

This dividend growth stock turned a $1,000 investment into slightly over $300,000 over the last 30 years. We’re talking an annualized total return of over 20%. Water has never looked more like money than it does right now.

The final stock is S&P Global (SPGI).

It turned a $1,000 investment in March 1991 into just over $404,000 by March 2021. This is an incredible annualized total return of over 22%.

So we’ve taken $1,000 invested into each stock in March 1991 and turned that into a final tally of… drumroll, please… $1,131,684.29.

We overshot our millionaire goal here. This investor is already well on their way to $2 million

This massive sum of money was built from only $5,000. If that doesn’t show the power of long-term compounding from high-quality dividend growth stocks, I don’t know what will.

    Great insight of the future. Thank you for the dividend strategy 👍

  5. Hans Schotterradler on March 17, 2021 at 2:44 am

    Based on my math the $5000 of original investment went up by roughly 200x over the 30 years. This correlates to a growth rate of about 19.5% per year, which definitely beats the markets.

  6. Joe E on March 17, 2021 at 2:45 am

    AAPL would have been and excellent pick 30 years ago. I am old enough though to remember that nobody would have predicted what they are now. In the early 90’s the MAC computer was barely surviving. It couldn’t compete with the IBM clones.

  7. Steven Shumaker on March 17, 2021 at 2:46 am

    Great examples. What are your thoughts on these five stocks now?

  19. Eric B on March 17, 2021 at 3:08 am

    "Don’t just plant a tree, plant a forest" I am hearing you Jason. I have more stocks in my portfolio than I have full shares of stocks. In my small starter portfolio I would rather have a partial share of JNJ than a full share of something that wont serve me in my future. Thank you for your videos sir.

  20. David Moolekamp CPA on March 17, 2021 at 3:09 am

    Great video; and there’s plenty more examples to pick from. Thanks for putting this together. The "million" dollar question is what is that same $1,000 equivalency in today’s dollars for the investors of today that has 30 years in front of them.

  21. David Copsey on March 17, 2021 at 3:09 am

    What about today Jason which 5 stocks would you invest $5000 total to get to $1million in the future?

  22. T H on March 17, 2021 at 3:09 am

    Great video! What do you think the next "millionaire maker" DG stock/stocks will possibly be?

  23. Sir Francis on March 17, 2021 at 3:12 am

    awesome vid!!! I can’t get enough of the div stocks!
    if you were to do it over again today….which stocks would you choose? the same ones? would you invest the same initial amount of $1k or more?

  27. Bad Weatherfreak on March 17, 2021 at 3:21 am

    Is there a calculator that tracks compound growth in annual return and dividends?

  28. Zachary Phelan on March 17, 2021 at 3:25 am
