Best Buy and Holds



March 07, 2011 – Comments (11) | RELATED TICKERS: WM

Hello everyone.

I have a simple question for you all.  What single stock do you think is the best buy and hold forever?  Just asking for fun.

Ill go first.  My pick for best buy and hold is WM, Waste Management.  There will always be trash.  They are slowing becoming a dividend dynamo as well, currently near 3.7 % yield.

Disclosure:  I do NOT have any shares of WM, but after the economy collapses thanks to Washington : ), I plan on accumulating.

Ok, I'll play even though I have an obvious bias.


This is my largest holding, and I think they'll remain the leader in electronic transactions as we move into a cashless society.

They just IPO'ed in April of 2008 so my plan is to grow old with this company.

I'd say PM but I haven't bought any yet. Not sure about "forever" but say next 20 years.

Also, nothing wrong with holding some indexes for life, SPY, IJR, MDY, etc

PM, Macdonalds, Coke.


I would put PM (Philip Morris Int) as #1 buy and hold stock though. I own some but I am not buying right now because I feel like it's gone up too much.

AZN and/or ABT

I like ABT right now but you are getting a greater discount on AZN if you are holding forever.

PM is ranked #2 on my buy and hold stocks.  It definitely has a proven track record (via MO). ABT also has an impressive track record. 

GE also seems like it could be a good one, but growth seems minimal over the long haul.

Not GE, not after 2008/2009, ho-no.  I love PM, but I don't know if I would put it number one, given that its litigation risks will only increase internationally as developing countries Liberalize, with a capital-L.  I too love ABT, but couldn't put it #1 because as a drug company it has to constantly create new products.  I'd probably have to go with KO, actually, or else with Berkshire.  Berkshire is going to be a wealth-generating monster for decades after Buffett dies.  The day he dies, when its price drops at least ten or maybe a much higher percent, is going to be a huge buying opportunity.  Funny, too, up until a year ago, I'm sure somebody would have said JNJ.

Long PM, ABT, WM, KO, BRK.B, MO, MCD, JNJ.  I've never heard someone answer this question with Visa, so I'm going to look into it more closely, thanks.

Check this out, I agree with many of the points.

I'll have to hunker down and do a write up on Visa one of these days. Such a slacker ; )
