Dividends4Life: The 3 Dividend Stocks You'll Wish You'd Bought 10 Years From Now

Warren Buffett has often said that his ideal holding period is forever. There's also a lot of evidence that the longer you hold stocks, the lower your risk becomes and the better your returns are. Of course, the key to that is owning the right stocks to begin with. And in general terms, some of the best stocks to buy and hold are dividend stocks. After all, companies that have shown the ability to pay a dividend often have strong enough businesses to ride out economic ups and downs as well as being competitive.

Furthermore, dividend stocks also have a very strong record of total returns -- that is, share price appreciation plus dividends -- that often outperforms the market overall. So with the idea that owning stocks for the very long term is ideal and that dividend stocks often make the best investments, we asked three of our contributing investors a simple question: "What's a dividend stock that you might regret not owning a decade from now?" They came up with CareTrust REIT Inc. (NASDAQ:CTRE), Patterson Companies, Inc. (NASDAQ:PDCO), and Enterprise Products Partners L.P. (NYSE:EPD).
