|Includes:Abbott Laboratories (ABT), CLX, CVX, JNJ, K, MCD, MMM, PEP, PG, T

Using the EzBacktest tool available at thriftytrend.blogspot.com/
I  created the following chart, by inputting the following 10 dividend stocks(ABT,CVX,T,JNJ,MCD,PEP,PG,MMM,K,CLX) using the following parameters:
1) Allocate 10% to each stock
2) 313 months to test(tried to get close to 30 years-actually about 26 years)
3) Rebalance yearly
The output came out like this:
Months shown 312
Avg Dividend Yield 3.14%
Returns 3676.6%
Annualized Returns 14.9%
Outperform SP500 3033%
Standard Deviation 13.9%
Sharpe Ratio 0.87
Reallocation frequency Yearly
Starting Balance $88,840
Ending Balance $3,600,000
This is dividends re-invested.
*** Note-the chart is mis-labeled, and should read 26 years. ***
