I don't know the exact figures on how the rising dividend stocks have performed but our Genuine Parts stock has nearly doubled from stock splits since 1992 and Pfizer is up about a factor of 5 even though we have sold some of this stock in the interim for travel. They aren't doing so well at the moment but the dividends still keep rising. I might say that I think the core holding of everyone should be a S&P500 fund. Our 401k plans are such that we don't have the Vanguard 500 fund but that would be the one of choice.
