Dividends4Life: 2 Top Dividend Stocks to Buy and Hold Forever

2 Top Dividend Stocks to Buy and Hold Forever

Posted by D4L | Thursday, November 12, 2015 | | 0 comments »

When searching for stocks to buy and hold for the long haul, there are certain things to look for. A strong track record of profitability, manageable debt load, and good history of increasing dividends are just a few characteristics that make a stock a "forever stock." With that in mind, here are two of my favorite forever stocks -- both of which happen to be real estate investment trusts -- and why each could be an excellent addition to your portfolio for decades to come.

A strong business model and excellent risk management. Realty Income Corporation (NYSE:O) is one of my favorite stocks in the market, and for good reason. This REIT focuses on freestanding retail properties, with more than 4,400 properties leased to 235 different tenants. Favorable demographics and a fragmented market should keep this company busy. Health Care Property Investors (NYSE:HCP), known as HCP, invests in senior housing facilities, post-acute care properties, medical offices, and life-sciences properties.
