Podcast: one stock for 50 years

In today’s Exponential Investor…

  • The question of all questions
  • Technology or stalwarts?
  • Kim Kardashian makes a point

It’s Friday, which means it’s time for another Exponential Investor podcast.

Today, right off the bat we ask the biggest most thought-provoking question of the year. In fact, for most investors it should be a question that you ask yourself right now and see if you’ve got an answer.

The question is simple: if you could invest in one stock for the next 50 years, what would it be?

What a question, right?

We attempt to break it down with the kinds of things you should be thinking about to answer that question. Do you search for pure capital gains? Do you look for income-producing (dividend-paying) companies to augment future capital gains? Do you look to the tech market, or is it perhaps the one area of investment to avoid for 50-year investing?

Also, what does Kim Kardashian have to do with the tech market and its potential success or failure in the future? How is Kim involved in trying to figure out what makes great or not so great investment decisions for the next 50 years?

Maybe it’s all about strength of brand, and investing in the things that we simply won’t be able to live without in 50 years’ time.

We’d love to know what you think too. If you had to invest in one company for the next 50 years, part of your core long-term portfolio, what would it be?

Tune in to our latest podcast to hear about our thoughts and some examples of the kinds of stocks to think about when trying to decide what you would think would be one stock to own for the next 50 years.
