If You Invested $100 Over The Past 15 Years In This Dividend Stock, Here's How Much You Would Have Today

NetApp (NASDAQ:NTAP) has outperformed the market over the past 90 days by 16.28%, generating a 19.48% return for its investors over the time period. Now, given this information, it may seem like price appreciation alone is the best way to have made money on this stock, that's not actually the case.

This is because NetApp has been paying out a regular cash dividend every year over the past 15 years. Investors who fail to account for dividends are missing a key ingredient in calculating a stock's profitability over time.
