Warren Buffett
The Dow Jones Industrials advanced from 66 to 11,497 in the 20th Century, a staggering 17,320% increase that materialized despite four costly wars, a Great Depression and many recessions.

And don’t forget that shareholders received substantial dividends throughout the century as well.
