SCHD is a solid dividend holder for me.


shortyafter

I don't understand these dividend funds. The yield is almost always lower than what you could find by going out and picking individual dividend stocks. The average yield on SCHD seems to be about 3%, whereas you can easily find 4-5% stocks out there, and even 7-8% if you're willing to push it to the limit with tobacco companies and the like. Just looked at the chart, though. That looks really good. If you're buying based on the chart going up, however, that's not exactly a true dividend play. Depends what the goal is I suppose. Edit: it seems OP wasn't asking for a dividend play so I will just go jump in a well now. Leaving this here anyway. Good luck to all.


bert00712

If you want maximize your dividends, dividend growth will matter more over the long term. SCHD hits the sweet spot between dividend yield and growth.


shortyafter

That's the correct answer, but at the same time if you're not a market bull you may prefer to take the reliable and high-yield dividend. Different strategies.


HeavyFuckingMetalx

Second this.


rudckslee

Personally I’d buy those companies in the index, not the index itself

VTI and chill tbh

Google, Home Depot. Both are market leaders, fairly valued and not going anywhere.

VTI AAPL GOOG MSFT QQQ

if I knew I wont need my money for the next 10 years , it would all be split on these probably a bit more ob goog. only reason not to buy it now is slightly high p/e, which doesnt matter when talking decades

Ones that always go up


doggy_lovers

Microsoft looks like its going for a breakout, its a good long term investment that will always be around, they do alot of stuff not just windows, azure and office but way more (stuff thats more for businesses) its the most diversified tech company there is. (in gaming, vr/ar, ai, software, cloud, ads)


piccdogg22

NVDA


yesdemocracy

Disney is one of my favourite picks. The amount of IP they have with such massive fan bases across Marvel and Disney original stuff. They also have a strong customer loyalty when it comes to their park. I think Marvel was one of their best purchase and the next 10 years is going to be incredible for them in box office money and disney+. Not forgetting the parks, merch, that they continue to produce. I don't see Disney going anywhere.


rgujijtdguibhyy

Do you guys like know no other companies than aapl and msft lmao


theskyalreadyfell217

Do you have some good suggestions? I’m always interested in new companies to look into.


PersecuteThis

WM, RTX, PG, JNJ, NOC, JPM, BRK.B, DIS, STAG, V. All good long term holds but if I had the capital, I would fund more goog purchases.


Your_Mom1111

Woah, thats a good list dude


ThyBigPeenPlaya

pltr bb


rgujijtdguibhyy

CRM ISRG AMAT LRCX ADSK ANSS ASML AMZN and also massively bullish on India over a 20+ year time period so could list a few companies from there But the stock market is massive I dont even know a lot of companies and what they do. Lot of good ones out there but I'd just stay away from something like Apple or Microsoft just because so many people selected those, or invest a small part of my portfolio

juaggo_

I like Apple, Microsoft and Disney. Good fundamentals and popular products/services that will sell a ton in the future.


apooroldinvestor

Don't forget NVDA or ASML.


costadelsol312

If I had to choose one stock that pays dividends and I’m sure will be around for 100 years, it would be OTIS. New elevators continue to be installed as the world urbanizes. Each elevator is then a money tree through government mandated maintenance and service for the lifetime of the elevator.


apooroldinvestor

Vs GOOGL MSFT NVDA?? I know who the winners will be!


FullTackle9375

Love how people suggest tech companies that are a few years old lol. Industrials and basic food companies like Nestle are the most proven and will be there in 20 years.


Longjumping-Let2337

Nestle may be the actual devil but it's true, they are here to stay, they own so many good brands.


Embarrassed-Fox9956

I like BGS huge dividend! And Green giant hohoho I use it like a savings account, my dividends are 100.00 a quarter.


Motor_Somewhere7565

VERY long term. There are some good growth fundamentals that go hand in hand with patience. But then again, younger companies could fail before realizing their potential, so it's a risk.


confused-caveman

Dear lawd if you're going to buy a single stock for your entire portfolio... don't bet on a ccp controlled company.


Your_Mom1111

No Im not lol. I have a lot in my portfolio, just gonna be buying shares of a bigger company with some of the profits I make


SunkenPretzel

rgujijtdguibhyy

cass1o

So? It is super overvalued and has accounted for a large % of the long term.


rgujijtdguibhyy

Makes sense but I'd still consider a fair percentage of my portfolio in pltr if wanted to invest for 20 years. Maybe sell some leap puts


eratosum

Start value investing in stocks. Start researching now and do your DD before the next market correction. IMO value investing is the only way to get through the next 24 months unscathed. 1) Read a book called 'The Little Book That Still Beats The Market' (not one to advertise but it will change your perspective on how to consistently make good returns in the market). 2) Look for stocks that have a history of good , solid financial performance , YOY Sales / Revenue and Free Cash Growth must all be +ve. 3) Look for high value stocks at cheap prices i.e. PE < 15, forward PE also ideally less than 15 (historic market average) 4) Stocks with assets exceeding liabilities are a must 5) Appropriately sized company Market Cap, no more than 2x annual revenue or no more than 15x annual free cash flow as a ballpark figure. 6) Look at their track record of share dilution - you dont want to buying companies which dilute the hell out of your shares. 7) Be patient. Patience is the key. 8) Never buy the hype, sell the news. 9) My portfolio for the next 12 months: AAL , ATH, EBS, HEAR, JHG, SWBI, TUP, ZUMZ


costanzashairpiece

Index ETFs.


markhalliday8

I love it how because Amazon missed their earnings they aren't being listed when they are normally on every other comment. Reality is the biggest companies are likely to just get bigger and continue to succeed. It's unlikely for any of these trillion or near trillion companies to die but don't take my advice because I'm an amateur and this is just my opinion


kalvicc123

I would say these are also the biggest risk companies. If there is economic downtrend then i think Amazon and Apple could suffer. Also fb,goggl because less ads. Tech is good now when there is bull market, i dont know if you would be happy to hold Company who underperform many years. Its all about diversification.


code_man_

I started doing this with PEP. Planning to reinvest dividends and also credit card cash back (been using SoFi app for this) for like 30 years. I started really small so I'm not too worried if it doesn't pan out like I hoped. But they seem to be consistently rising over the years, with a good dividend. I hope when I'm 60 it'll be giving me a nice chuck of change quarterly.


rudckslee

IMO there’s no stable company like MSFT to hold for the long term


pieredforlife

Broad based etf


Specialist_Operation

I wouldn’t pick any individual stock for a very long term investment. Concentration builds (or wipes out wealth) but diversification will preserve it. A lot can happen to a company over 20 years. I think you had the right idea, VOO is where it’s at.


im_a_real_goober

If you have enough money, $TGIF, I like $SFYF too, it’s pretty much just letting the masses trade for you, and the people are using their own money to invest in usually profitable companies, I love all Sofi etf’s


krayzie100

I add to $AAPL and $VOO weekly no matter the price.


Your_Mom1111

I may stick with only apple, Im not sure yet. Should I stick to one?


GTATurbo

Never stick to one stock. There's a proverb about eggs and baskets for a reason.


savinger

If you only want one, you should do VOO or VTI.

Companies that have growth over business cycles. They must have competitive advantages, preferably a dominating position in their market. People have to or will keep buying their stuff. Those that have higher returns on capital and on equity than average businesses, can pay dividends and raise them (aka growing cash flow) year after year and don’t require lots of debt. The wonderful businesses that Buffett seeks to own belong to this category of God gifted stocks. I’d say BABA and 0700.HK seem to belong to this category. But that is only my opinion.


canyonridge20

10xwannabe

If I was going to bet the farm... ASML and Disney. For ASML, I don't see how it won't keep getting bigger. Chips are only increasing in need and they are the DOMINATE player that makes the machines that makes the chips. For Disney, you always need entertainment and with Disney characters, Lucasfilm, and Marvel I don't see them slowing down. Their new era in via Disney+ will only take away marketshare from the other folks. Biggest plus is parents have serious NOSTALGIA for the mouse that is about as much goodwill that one can ever hope to achieve as a company! Wouldn't argue with calls of Deer, Caterpillar, nestle, coca cola, and pepsi of the top of my head. p.s. I don't own any of the above so have no dog in this fight.


gdren

Tesla. In the past 10 years they defeated every single entrenched automaker in the electric market. The EV market will overtake the gas market and their battery tech has crazy use cases outside auto. 20 years from now they'll be unstoppable.


Your_Mom1111

Yes I agree! Just placed on order for some Tesla shares btw

Indices, generally. Even leveraged at 2x or 3x, since I don't expect particular volatility in general markets. Besides that, large financial services, fossil fuels companies, megacap tech, chipmakers, large scale conglomerates, etc.

The next 20 years might have more innovation than the last 20. So I wouldn't invest in big tech FAANG and call it a day


Motor_Somewhere7565

You \*would\* or wouldn't? Seems trivial to point out a typo, but I think we all want to help them out


NPRjunkieDC

I would have a small 20-30% in FAANMG . Rest in new technologies including some exposure to COIN + ETHE and similar


Motor_Somewhere7565

I admire your risk tolerance

My portfolio is not retirement money . But I see too much reliance on big tech.

trill_collins__

KMI & WMB - consistent dividends, they own cash yielding, real infrastructure, and the future cash flows from those real assets are backed by long term commitments. Seems like that's the high cash yield, low risk profile investing strategy you're going for.


Bmarshall205

Railroad stocks. UP, CSX, KCS, CN, CP, NS etc. They pay dividends every quarter.


CCWWFF

Occidental Petroleum


rhetorical_twix

Pfizer just got upgraded to strong buy. It was on every analyst's list as a value stock, has been considered undervalued and has the covid vaccine + other drugs in its portfolio. Actually, I'm unsure it's still considered undervalued because it's climbed quite a bit in the past few weeks.


efrost55

They are quite famous for receiving some pretty big fines mind, including for suppressing bad test results only a few years ago.


sincopothedread

Pfizer got upgraded to a strong buy by who???


rhetorical_twix

There have been multiple upgrades in the past couple of grades but the one I saw today was CFRA. And while Moderna & BioNTech have been tumbling in the double digits, Pfizer hit all time highs today and is now being called a momentum stock.


IAMHideoKojimaAMA

I think they are a good buy atm. But if we're talking about a strong 10 year buy theres better options.


kalvicc123

Pfizer was a buy few month back, i didnt pick it up. Took Glaxo instead, both was under 35. Now pfizer is going for a downtrend
