Five Dividend-Payers That Could Turn $10,000 Into $5 Million In 65 Years

You may have read some articles about making million by investing into stocks. This blog don't promise you a quick return. I will also not show you how you make a thousand dollar trade.

The core thoughts in this blog are value creation by long-term investing. If you put money for a long period of time into a stock, you will see that your investment is growing.



Consider this nifty fact to keep you focused on the long term: $10,000 invested at birth and compounded 10% annually turns into more than $5 million by age 65.





As you can see, a $10,000 investment can easily turn into a fortune if it is left to compound at a reasonable rate of return over the long term. For these calculations, we assumed a 10% average annual rate of return over the long term, which is less than the amount actually achieved by the market as a whole since 1926. 


Below are five picks that could help you to boost your portfolio return. To qualify for this list, the company must have a long history of dividend increases. We also took into account the sustainability of those dividends and the amount of yield it was providing.


We kept total return in mind, looking for companies with excellent earnings and dividend growth rates, as well as sustainable business models. Since investment amounts are likely to be small to start, we limited our selections to companies that do not charge fees for investing through the plan. We also sought to diversify the companies in terms of industry. The companies that met these conditions are listed below.


Here are some ideas...
