Dividends4Life: 5 Stocks to Buy and Hold For 20 Years

5 Stocks to Buy and Hold For 20 Years

Posted by D4L | Monday, April 18, 2016 | | 0 comments »

Though it's undeniably gratifying to watch any stock you own skyrocket in value over short periods of time, the best way to predictably generate wealth is to buy and hold shares of great companies over the long term. And we're not talking periods of just weeks or months, but rather years or -- better yet -- decades. So we asked five Motley Fool contributors to offer one stock they think investors would be wise to buy now and hold for the next 20 years. Read on to see which companies they chose and why...

One stock that I've gotten more excited about over time is Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX). When I think of stocks that you can set and forget for decades at a time, payment processing facilitator Visa (NYSE:V) is often one of the first to jump to the forefront. Ionis Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:IONS) looks, to me, like a great name to hold onto for an extended period of time. Perhaps it's the inner wings, beer, and sports fan compelling me, but I think investors would do well to buy and hold Buffalo Wild Wings (NASDAQ:BWLD) stock for the next two decades. There will always be goods needing to be transported across America, and the newest popular phone app or streaming service won't make railroads obsolete. For that reason, my pick is Union Pacific Corporation (NYSE:UNP).
