Adjusting stock market return for inflation

The nominal return on investment of $35 is $90,910.55, or 259,744.44%. This means by 2021 you would have $90,945.55 in your pocket.

However, it's important to take into account the effect of inflation when considering an investment and especially a long-term investment. You can convert S&P returns to their real (inflation-adjusted) value using an inflation calculation based on the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Consumer Price Index (CPI).

In the case of the returns described above, the CPI in 1950 was 24.100 and the CPI in 2021 was 270.970.

The ratio between these CPIs describes how relative buying power of a dollar has changed over 71 years.

Adjusted for inflation, the $90,945.55 nominal end value of the original $35 investment would have a real value of roughly $8,053.67 in 1950 dollars. This means the inflation-adjusted return is 23,010.48% as opposed to the original 259,744.44%.

Dollar-cost averaging

Dollar-cost averaging is an alternative to investing the full lump-sum of $35.00 up-front. Instead, the capital is invested over a period of time.

Consider a strategy in which $35.00 was invested in the S&P 500 over a period of no more than 24 months beginning in 1950. This would result in a final amount of $71,362.12, including dividend reinvestments. In this particular case, dollar-cost average returns are less than the returns of a lump-sum investment (which ends with $90,945.55).
