|Picture portraying the concept of holding outstanding stocks forever|
"When we own portions of outstanding businesses with outstanding managements, our favorite holding period is forever."
I am constantly besieged by the questions wanting to know the best stocks for holding periods ranging from six months to an year, maximum. never is the investment horizon more than three years. And I have been advising aspiring investors about holding the investments intact for long periods, which is the norm for value-investors.
Here, Warren Buffett, Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway, is advising investors to hold shares of outstanding companies forever. Such companies not only reward investors with copious dividends for their lifetimes, but also generate immense wealth through capital appreciation or increase in the market value.
