Growth Stocks vs. Dividend Stocks

When it comes to growth stocks and dividend stocks, which should you invest in? The answer depends on you, since every investor has unique goals, timelines, risk tolerances, and overall suitability. I’ve been investing over 20 years, and there has always been a debate over which investment strategy is best. There seems to be a massive divide. Most people feel like you have to choose a side: either growth stocks or dividend growth stocks.

I believe the best stock market portfolios have a blend of both, and each portfolio is tailored to the individual. If you are a younger investor or have a higher risk tolerance, growth stocks can be used as a way to outperform the market and accelerate wealth. Of course, the stock market does not simply go up every day, and it has its ups and downs.

In today’s video, I explain and categorize stocks into buckets. I explain the differences between growth stocks and dividend stocks. For example, Robinhood‘s most popular dividend growth stocks include Starbucks (NASDAQ: SBUX), Walmart (NYSE: WMT), and Pepsi (NASDAQ: PEP). These are great companies that continue to increase their annual dividends to shareholders. But how do these dividend growth stocks compare to growth stocks like Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN), Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX), and Alphabet (NASDAQ: GOOG) (NASDAQ: GOOGL) over the past decade?
