One of the keys to successful dividend investing is identifying companies that can consistently grow their dividend, even during turbulent times. These dividend stocks have historically produced market-beating returns. Because of that, dividend growth stocks can help investors compound their wealth, enabling them to grow a small initial investment into a much larger nest egg over time.
Two companies with a history of dividend growth are Realty Income (NYSE: O) and Brookfield Infrastructure (NYSE: BIPC) (NYSE: BIP) . They built their payouts to last, making them great dividend stocks to buy and hold for the long haul. That makes them ideal options for those with $1,000 to invest (or any amount, really), because they should grow that money steadily in the years to come.
