- From 1926 through 2012, reinvestment of dividends accounted for 97% of the stock market's total return after inflation.*
- Weighting by dividends can raise a portfolio's dividend yield. research shows that portfolios comprised of the highest dividend-yielding stocks within the S&P 500** Index have historically outperformed the S&P 500 Index as a whole.
