My 6 Favorite Stocks For The Next 20 Years

Market whims and whispers can cause stocks to trade violently in the short term, but strong companies with top-shelf management and rock-solid financials can deliver returns that trounce the market long term.

Because investing for longer periods has proven to outperform shorter periods of trading in and out of stocks, I ask myself which stocks are the best onces to buy and hold for the next twenty years or so.


My basic interest should be to discover those companies with really unimitable business models that are not replaceable by unicorns or internet companies.


In addition, the business-footprint should be so strong that it's very hard for competitors to enter the market.


My thoughts come down to the most popular dividend growth stocks.


These are my favorite stocks for the next 20 years...
