Best Stocks for Long term

We have often heard stories on how investing in share markets have led to unbelievably high returns. Investors are fascinated by the multibagger returns that fundamentally strong stocks keep on delivering.

But the most important aspect of investing is often ignored by them: the time horizon. History is proof that some of the largest gains have come from investing in long-term stocks.

Investment in share markets is balancing your portfolio between the short, mid, and long term. A seasoned investor will have all three types of stocks in his portfolio.

The trick to finding long-term shares is looking at all the aspects of the company. Factors like growth opportunity of the company, management of the company, profits, financial performance, operational performance, consistent dividend, etc. all are considered when selecting a long-term stock.

The best stock for the long term is the one that gives you positive answers for all the above. Long-term investing has little to do with the current share price of the company.

Long-term investing is not where the company is standing right now, it is all about thinking about where the company will be in the future. For example, Warren Buffett bought Wells Fargo at a time when everyone was avoiding banking stocks.

However, over the period, Buffett got huge returns from Wells Fargo.

Hence, the share price of a stock for long-term investment may not look like it is in your favour when you invest, but over the long run, it will give you the returns you expect.

Mind you, this aspect is also true when it comes to penny stocks.

Finding fundamentally strong penny stocks is the first step toward finding the best stock for the long term.
