5 Dividend Stocks For Long-Term-Investors

Experts suggest that in order to successfully invest for the long term, you need to focus on quality stocks that are stable and predictable, because what works today may not work years or decades from now.

Dividends play an important role within long-term investing. You get steady growth at low volatility, while also receiving dividends that you can use to reinvest in the company for more stock, or acquire new positions.

High-quality stocks as long-term investments is a great strategy especially when they grow, pay and rise dividends over time. Today I like to present 5 dividend paying stocks that may good long-run stocks for normal investors like me.

    Thanks for the post, Tom. General Mills had slipped by my attention for some reason. When I added it to my table of 48 dividend stocks, it came out #19 using my ranking criteria. I'll add it to my portfolio soon.

    Coca-Cola was the only other one of real interest (#39 in my table). Apple would be of interest if I had a longer investment window. I'm old enough that I'm only looking at 10-year investments.

    Thanks again for your posts.
