Dividends4Life: 3 Dividend Stocks To Buy Now And Hold Forever

3 Dividend Stocks To Buy Now And Hold Forever

Posted by D4L | Monday, February 15, 2016 | | 0 comments »

The numbers tell the tale: according to Ned Davis Research, dividend-paying stocks returned an average of 9.3% a year from 1972 through 2014, compared to 2.6% for non-dividend payers—and they did so with less volatility. And with the selloff driving prices down — and dividend yields up — now is a great time to add some top-quality names (companies with strong brands, easy-to-understand businesses and rising payouts) to your portfolio. Here are three such stocks that are permanently on my watch list:

Wells Fargo (WFC): Warren Buffett says his favorite holding period is forever, and it looks like that’s how long he’ll hold Wells Fargo. Buffett first invested in Wells in 1989, when it traded around $2.45. Today it’s around $49.00—or 1,860% higher). Visa (V) isn’t exactly an income investor’s dream, with its paltry 0.78% yield. But for long-term investors, dividend growth is the key, and here, Visa has a gripping story to tell: in the past five years, its quarterly payout has surged 278% (adjusted for a 4-for-1 stock split last March). Johnson & Johnson (JNJ): When looking for a stock to hold forever, it helps to home in on companies that have been around for, well, practically forever themselves.
