Want $2,000 per Year in Passive Income? Invest $54,000 in These 3 Dividend Stocks

Dividend stocks can be a great source of returns in the stock market -- especially when inflationary pressures take hold. According to Fidelity, dividend payments have accounted for 40% of the stock market's total return since 1930. During the inflationary decades of the 1940s and 1970s, Fidelity found that dividends accounted for 65% and 71% of the S&P 500's total returns, respectively.
