Dividends4Life: If You're in Your 20s, Consider Buying These Stocks

Our 20s can be a pretty transformational time in our lives. Chances are, if you're in your 20s now, you're just getting started in the world of investing. Taking that first step into an unfamiliar world might sound scary, but you have an advantage everyone else in the market envies: time. To help you take that first step and make some of your first stock purchases, we asked three of our contributors to highlight one company they think young investors should consider. Here's what they had to say.

The video game industry is maturing in a lot of ways, so you really want to find a company within it that knows what it's doing and that you don't need to babysit in your portfolio. Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ:ATVI) is one of those companies. Investors with a decades-long time horizon should be focused on finding companies that are in high-growth mode with a massive addressable market ahead of them. One company that fits that description perfectly is TripAdvisor (NASDAQ:TRIP). Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ), Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG), and ExxonMobil (NYSE:XOM) are the investment equivalents of the tortoise in the "tortoise and the hare" story. Slowly and steadily, their consistent dividend payments have generated wealth for their investors over long time horizons.
