recycle b: What stocks will be a wise investment to hold long term?
I am sick and tired of seeing my stock portfolio sometimes decreasing a few thousand dollars in one day. I am always looking for new stock investments. Which large corporate stocks are still available that have always made a profit and still have profit growth, have a low PE ratio, pay a dividend that will not be cut, have little or no debt on their balance sheet, and will be safe in this bad economy that we are facing. Provide the ticker symbols of these stocks and the reasons why the stock of these companies should be purchased.

Unfortunately you are not going to like my anwser to your question.
Long term investing=going broke in your account
short term investing=lots of profits in your account
I bought SHLD yesterday at 27.25 and sold today at 30.61
Thats a 3.36 profit per share on the 3000 shares i bought.
If I were to hold SHLD for the long term I would lose money.
Her is my advice buy CME ONLY if the stock drops tommorrow below
151 buy 700 shares and Monday if it drops below 146 buy 1400 shares
Sell for profit once the stock reaches back to 150-151 range on tuesday.
Send me an e-mail if u need to walk u through the trade.
DO NOT try to hold CME for the long term or u will lose.
This is all technical price movement.
POT.TO – Potash is in high demand world wide especially in developing countries like China and India becuase if it’s use in making fertilizer, glass and soap. 52 week high: $ 250. Current Price: $ 77 (mainly becuase of one companies opinion on the demand for potash, yet POT continues to spew out huge profits).
OIL – pick a company. heading into the winter, fewer people will have the option of walking as opposed to driving. Again, countries like China and India are industrializing, which means their population is just starting to use things like motor vehicles and heavy machinery in their countries, which will increase the demand on oil reserves. I heard a stat that for every 100 people in North America, there are roughly 70 vehicles. For every 100 people in China and India, there are are roughly 9 vehicles. Can you imagine the demand on oil when China and India start getting close to the 70 cars/100 people mark?
Why is China and India so important? Their population makes up more than 35% of the worlds population. China and India have more population than North America, Europe, and Africa COMBINED!
Want to invest long term…find industries that will be positioned to make money off the economy/industrialization in China and India over the next few decades. Look at contruction trades and material used in construction.Answer by klimlover
no, do not go OIL. I have made a fortune shorting oil. The time of oil is passed. While they are huge corporations who will continue to reap profits, demand is dropping and will only drop further as people develope better alternate energy plans.Answer by Brendan Prewitt
You’re looking for a lot of things that others are looking for, however, there is very little out there that meets your requests. Of anything, I would suggest companies like Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Altria (MO), Walmart (WMT) and Procter & Gamble (PG). I would avoid the pharmaceuticals despite their high yields and relative stability as there is question regarding the drug policy of Obama, who will likely push generics. Therefore, you are stuck looking for companies in the consumer staples arena for the most part, and then very select companies outside that arena that will do well in either a strong or weak economy. However, for the long-term, I would definitely encourage people to invest in commodity-related industries (such as oil, metals, fertilizer, etc.), as they have fallen off a cliff because of our deflationary environment. However, with the substantial monetary stimulus that the government has been injecting into the financial sector, our country will emerge from this in a much weaker financial state than the likes of China (using a fiscal stimulus versus a monetary stimulus) or Japan (has a strong budget surplus, just lent the IMF $ 100 billion). Therefore, I expect inflation to take a toll on the economy going forward, which may prolong this recession, as it will likely begin its rampage once the economy begins to recover, and will likely exceed the levels we saw earlier this year (oil at $ 140+). In regards to timing, I can’t help but continue to be bearish on the broader markets. The markets broke my previous expectations of S&P 500 to the 800 level, and I have revised my expectations to S&P 500 to the 575 level. I have done so as the market just broke a long-term support line (from the 2002 market bottom) today, and broke a bearish descending triangle pattern yesterday, which was confirmed today by a failed retest of the previous support line. Therefore, if you do enter any of these companies, do so only with the long-term in mind, and create a dollar-cost averaging strategy to build your position and strictly adhere to it. At some point, there will be a recovery in the markets, but there is little fundamental or technical reason to consider entering the market aggressively now. Just my opinion, I hope it helps.
Best of luck!
