3 Dividend Stocks You Can Hold Forever

Posted by D4L | Monday, April 14, 2014 | | 0 comments »

I am a firm believer of dividend-stocks. One thing that cannot be wiped out in the next market collapse is the regular cash return from these investments. Since 1946, dividends have accounted for 55% of the real return to stocks, though yields have dropped lately to just 2% for those in the S&P 500. Nearly all of the investments in my portfolio offer a yield of 3% or more.

There are some products that people just can't live without. Most think of these as food and household goods but I would also add things like cigarettes and real estate to the list. Growth may not be as fast in these mature markets, but buying the best-of-breed companies will help ensure that your investment grows consistently over time: Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan (POT) is the world's second-largest producer of potash and the third largest of nitrogen and phosphate. Kinder Morgan Energy Partners (KMP) is the third-largest energy company in North America and the largest independent transporter of petroleum products. Philip Morris International (PM) controls 15.6% of the international cigarette market with some of the strongest brands in the industry.
