Dividends4Life: 3 Dividend Stocks That Can Stay in Your Retirement Portfolio for Decades

Dividend Growth Stocks News

Nothing, of course, is forever. Sears would have been a very good investment for a long time had you purchased it before or even during the many decades in which the company was a dominant retail force. That chain's fall shows that there's no such thing as a stock that's a sure bet forever, but there are companies you can buy and check in on occasionally simply to make sure nothing terrible has happened (Eddie Lampert buying a big stake would be a potential red flag). These three companies might not endure forever, but they're built to thrive for decades to come. All three pay a dividend, and all three have shown the ability to steadily grow their business.

Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) has become ubiquitous in the United States and has a strong presence in countless other countries. The company has found a business model that works, and its sheer size has helped it marginalize competitors in what was previously a fractured space. Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) has turned its business from one based on sales to one that makes its revenue from subscriptions and ongoing services. That's a model for sustained success, since the company no longer has to make one big sale. It can instead offer affordable subscriptions and services that scale with the size of its customers' businesses. Fast-food giant McDonald's (NYSE:MCD) has shown that it can adapt to a changing dining landscape. The company has overcome fears that its product would become less popular as fast-casual chains offering higher-quality but more expensive food grew in popularity.
