Some of the best investors in the world like to buy stocks and never let them go. And hey, if you found a winner, why would you sell it to someone else? Even Warren Buffett himself has owned some of his companies for decades – he bought for the first time The Coca-Cola Company in the early years it was held American Express Company from the years & # 39; 60!
Here are five companies I would like to buy and keep until I'm old!
CSL is an avant-garde company for at least a decade in the biotech space. CSL is a global player in the blood plasma space and also works on vaccines and disease control through its Seqirus division. I have full confidence that CSL will continue to dominate the biotechnology industry and I would be happy to have CSL shares in my portfolio forever.
MFF Capital Investments Ltd (ASX: MFF)
I already own MFF shares and I never intend to sell them. MFF is a listed investment company (LIC) managed by one of the best fund managers in Australia (in my opinion) – Chris Mackay. Mr. Mackay has a large chunk of his family's money in the MFF, so I trust he will manage the fund with integrity. MFF holds some of the best companies in the world, such as MasterCard is Alphabet (Google), so I'm very comfortable with this title.
Washington H. Soul Pattinson and Co. Ltd (ASX: SOL)
& # 39; Soul Patts & # 39; it has been around for a while (1872 to be exact) and has a long tradition of collecting good bonds and raising dividends. The company owns several diversified and good quality companies such as TPG Telecom Ltd (ASX: TPM) and I am confident that it will be around for a long time to come and bring the track record.
Rural funds are a real estate investment fund (REIT) specializing in agricultural land. No matter how much technology will advance in the coming decades, I'm pretty sure we'll still have to eat, so I'd be very happy to have RFF shares in my portfolio. RFF rents cotton, nut, wine and livestock farms and has increased rents in these leases – guaranteeing an increase in shareholder profits for years to come.
Always with the theme of technology, Xero is a company that has shown that it knows how to get and keep a customer. Its cloud-based accounting software has taken the world by storm. No matter what happens with the technology, the employees will always need to be paid and the taxes collected, so I see a strong future for Xero.
