Dividends4Life: Top 10 Buy-and-Hold Dividend Stocks

Top 10 Buy-and-Hold Dividend Stocks

Posted by D4L | Saturday, October 29, 2016 | | 0 comments »

Buy and hold stocks are definitely underrated. Some investors spend copious amounts of time tracking their investments and hoping their value increase. Then there are dividend investors. Sure, they like watching the value of their stocks rise, but they also like getting free money every three months—money they can either cash or reinvest.

If you’re looking at adding dividend growth stocks to your portfolio, pay particular attention to the price/book (P/B), price/earnings (P/E), return on equity (ReE), payout ratio, and levered free cash flow. Also, look for stocks with a high barrier to entry. This prevents other companies from entering the fray and taking a bite out of profit margins, which keeps the company making money and the dividend yield safe. Here are my top 10 “buy-and-hold” stocks: General Mills, Inc. (NYSE:GIS), Costco Wholesale Corporation (NASDAQ:COST), Procter & Gamble Co (NYSE:PG), The Coca-Cola Co (NYSE:KO), Altria Group Inc (NYSE:MO), ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP), Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ), Nike Inc (NYSE:NKE), Cummins Inc. (NYSE:CMI) and Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE:WMT).
