2 No-Brainer Dividend Stocks to Invest $1,000 in Right Now

2 No-Brainer Dividend Stocks to Invest $1,000 in Right Now

On that note, if you have $1,000 to invest -- and you don't need it for any near-term bills, to build up your emergency fund, or to pay off high-interest debt -- you could split it to invest in several shares of these two powerhouse dividend stocks. Apple's (NASDAQ: AAPL) 0.7% dividend yield doesn't look all that tempting, but it's easy to see why this stock is a go-to for many investors. Not only has Apple generated a total return of 180% for investors over the past three years (compared to the S&P 500's total return of 32%), but it's also increased its dividend by nearly 20% during that period.
