7 Eternal Stocks That Are Never Bad To Buy
Investors thought 2021 would be a less volatile year. This story encountered some problems. Of course, all the major indices are up for the year. And this, despite the dizzying 10% drop of the NASDAQ in March.
But many investors don’t really want to celebrate. In fact, many are worried about the liquidity that continues to flow into the stock market. In 2020, the pandemic inundated the economy with $ 6 trillion in stimulus packages.
However, in recent months, the Federal Reserve has injected an additional $ 6 trillion into the economy. We would have stopped counting, but the math is pretty easy. That’s $ 12.3 trillion that poured into the economy.
Ultimately, it will end badly. But timing the market is a flawed science, especially when many investors are enjoying the game.
Fortunately, there is a way to protect your portfolio without giving up stocks. It has to do with investing in stocks forever. Eternal actions are not magic beans. They don’t go up forever. But these are actions that have stood the test of time. And investing in these stocks will keep your portfolio in the right direction.
With that in mind, we’ve prepared this special presentation that showcases seven of these Forever Actions. These are all stocks that are household names, but that’s kind of the point. You don’t need any special knowledge. It suffices to recognize that these are companies that consistently do the right thing for their shareholders.
