History shows that the market's greatest stocks deliver the biggest gains over the long haul.

In 30 years, investors have made 10,876% from Coke... 15,492% from Apple... and 26,933% from Wal-Mart by using this simple investing strategy...

Dear Investor,

My name is Sara Glakas. I'm the chief investment strategist of Forever Stocks and the president of InvestingAnswers.com.

My Forever Stocks advisory recommends an exclusive class of stocks -- I call them "forever" stocks -- that you can buy, hold, and basically forget about, all without losing much sleep at night.

When you buy this exclusive class of stocks and let them grow year over year, you increase your chances of earning large returns and you decrease your odds of losing money.

I'm convinced that investing in "forever" stocks is one of the best decisions you'll ever make. That's why I spent more than a month putting together my latest research report, 20 Must-Buy "Forever" Stocks for September 2012.

These select stocks are some of the best investments I've ever found. They're the kind of stocks you can buy, forget about, and hold forever.

Here are just a few examples of what I discovered in my research:

  • Forever Stock #1 is my "Cadillac" investment for 2012. It's #1 in its industry, is expanding aggressively into fast-growing markets and, best of all, it's buying back $6 billion worth of its own shares in 2012. No wonder Warren Buffett AND George Soros just backed up the truck and bought 20.8 million shares...

  • Forever Stock #2 performs well in bull markets and bears... In 2008-2010, while many U.S. companies were laying off staff and shutting down stores, this company announced three consecutive record-breaking years of net income. Since 2002, its earnings per share has exploded from $4.10 to $20.47 in 2012, for an incredible increase of 399%.

  • Forever Stock #6 is about as boring a business as you'll find. But since going public in 2001, this energy company's share price has increased 530% -- over 20% a year. Add in the fact that during the same time period, it also tripled its dividend and now yields 5.0% a year, and it becomes obvious why this is a company we want to own "forever."

  • Forever Stock #10 is our "no-brainer" investment for 2012 -- a $21 investment in one share of stock during its 1987 IPO has turned into $7,200 today. And that's even after the '87 crash, the dot-com bubble and the Great Recession. It's hands down one of the best investments I've ever seen. And did I mention it's also one of only four S&P companies the ratings agency thinks is safer than the U.S. government? This stock is poised to generate a lifetime of income for "forever" investors like us.

  • Forever Stock #15 has raised its dividend 700% in 10 years... and by the end of last year, it had repurchased more than 32 million shares. The company plans at least $2.5 BILLION more in share repurchases this year, which should support the share price in just about ANY market.

That's just a taste of what I uncovered during hundreds of research hours. I'll send you the full details of these five picks, plus 15 more, if you sign up for a 30-day risk-free trial to my Forever Stocks investment advisory.

My investing philosophy is simple. I believe the best way to get wealthy in the stock market is by owning safe, market-dominating companies that continually reward their shareholders with cash.

This philosophy informs all of my stock market research. I want every stock I own to be something I want to pass down to my grandchildren -- not some "hot" stock tip that "might" hit it big.

And here's how I do it...

A Simple Strategy That Has NEVER
Lost Money

Normally I reserve this sort of content for Forever Stocks subscribers. But today I'm going to make an exception.

I'm going to show you -- in detail -- the simple strategy I use in my Forever Stocks advisory as well as my own personal portfolio. I chose this strategy for one reason: Investors who follow it have never lost money in the market.

A recent study by mega-investment firm Oppenheimer even confirmed my theory.

The problem is, I could tell 100 people about this strategy... and I'd guess 99 of them would flat out ignore it. That's despite the evidence I'll show you backing it up.

"Your strategy is for suckers."

"Its time has passed."

"You have to be an idiot to think that would work today."

I know some people will say this because they already have. We asked some of our regular website readers to give us their thoughts on this strategy. These were the type of responses I heard from some people. I was shocked.

If you're starting to think that this all sounds too good to be true, don't worry. There are a few caveats.

For one, you can't use this strategy for every stock. Use it on the wrong ideas, and you can still lose money. But across the market as a whole, it hasn't failed once in the past 60 years.

So what's the big secret?

You don't actually have to trade every day... every week... or even every year to make money in the market. In fact, you'll have greater success by making fewer trades and holding investments longer.

The best proof comes from the Oppenheimer study I mentioned earlier. They looked at the S&P 500 going all the way back to 1950. Over that time, the S&P 500 NEVER suffered a loss in a 20-year period.

Of course, we all know you can't say the same for holding stocks for a year or two. When you hold stocks for a short period of time, your odds of losing money are much, much higher.

I won't lie to you and say that there's no risk investing in stocks. You can lose a lot of money very quickly. In fact, in its worst 1-year period, the S&P 500 dropped 44.8%.

Even Warren Buffett's favorite holding period is "forever."

But it's surprising how many investors still fight it. The average holding period for an investment was seven years in 1940, according to William Hutchings of the Financial News. By 2007, that period had shrunk to just seven months.

So while all the evidence points to longer holding periods being better for your portfolio... most investors are doing the exact opposite.

I looked at the annual returns of the S&P 500 myself, going back to 1950.

You can see the proof for yourself in my chart...

On a rolling annual basis, the S&P 500 has dropped 16 times over a 1-year period since 1950... but zero times in any 20-year period.

The trend is clear. The longer you hold an investment, the better your chances of making money.

Unfortunately, the "forever" strategy doesn't work for every stock. If it did, Wall Street would be out of business in a heart beat. There will always be Enrons, Worldcoms, even General Motors scattered throughout the market. You could hold those three for an entire lifetime, and it wouldn't make one difference.

So today I'll show you how you can tell if a stock is a good candidate for holding "forever."

The 30-Second Test that Could Make My Job Obsolete

I'm so convinced that holding fantastic stocks "forever" is the best way to make money that I'm going to tell you exactly how to do it.

After all, if you know what to look for, then you'll be able to spot additional "forever" stocks on your own.

This may sound strange from someone who makes her living publishing an investing newsletter. And I expect that at least some of you are going to take this information and run with it yourself.

But my job, first and foremost is to help investors make money. That said, if you want to take this strategy and use it on your own, I wish you the best of luck and would love to hear about your future success.

I'm going to outline the simple 30-second test I use to find "forever" stock candidates in just a minute.

But first, I want to address the one thing that keeps many people from holding a stock "forever," even when they know it's the best way to grow their wealth.

Holding through thick and thin can be a challenge. After all, no one likes to see their holdings lose value, even if it's temporary.

So even if you want to hold for the long term, don't you have to have nerves of steel?

The answer is no. Absolutely not. If you're invested in the right stocks, you can beat the market with less volatility than you ever thought.

Hear me out...

Take the S&P's worst year of the last decade -- 2008. That year, the S&P dropped from 1,448 to 903. That's a nauseating 40.1% drop.

But you couldn't avoid that drop, right? After all, the S&P dropped that much... and it's an average of 500 of America's best companies. Everyone lost 40.1%, right?

I asked my research team to see how the five "forever" stocks I mentioned in the introduction performed during that nasty 2008 bear market. And even I was shocked with the results...

In 2008, the five "forever" stocks only dropped 15.2%, beating the S&P by over 24.9 percentage points.

And the other nine years of the last decade? Our basket of five "forever" stocks outperformed the S&P every year except two.

See for yourself...

These five stocks not only held up better during bear markets, they also crushed the market during bull markets.

Over the last decade, a portfolio of these five stocks returned 251.1% while the S&P managed to return only 16.1%:

But we think bigger gains could come in 2012... and beyond.

Now I'm not trying to brag about how "forever" stocks outperform the broader market in good times and in bad. My job is to help you make money, so I want to show you why these stocks did better.

"Forever" stocks have three main traits that allow them to dominate in the long run, namely:

  1. They enjoy huge (and lasting) advantages over their competition.

  2. They have conservative balance sheets, including a ton of cash.

  3. They pay their investors each and every year by dishing out rising dividends or buying back massive amounts of their own stock.

It only takes 30 seconds to check a stock for these characteristics. And my research has shown that more often than not, these are the companies that can make you money in the long run. (Of course, just because a stock passes these hurdles doesn't always make it a "forever" idea; it's simply a way to whittle down the candidates.)

It makes sense -- strong companies that can weather economic storms and put a priority on their shareholders tend to do better over the long-run.

Take one of my picks in 20 Must-Buy "Forever" Stocks for September 2012, Philip Morris (NYSE: PM), for example. Philip Morris is one of the most dominant companies I've ever researched. This company sells its products in 180 countries and owns seven of the world's top 15 global brands in its market.

But it's also the most shareholder-friendly company I've ever seen. Since 2008, it has raised its dividend 67%. In 2011 alone the company repurchased $5.4 BILLION of its own stock. Since being spun-off from its parent company Altria (NYSE: MO) in 2008, this company has bought back roughly 20% of the outstanding shares, which helps support the share price in just about any market.

Buy it now and you'll lock in a solid yield of nearly 4%, and I expect another dividend increase in the next quarter or two. Meanwhile, the company plans $6 billion more in share repurchases this year, which should support the share price in just about any market.

Of course, with investing there is never a surefire thing. That said, investing in companies that enjoy strong advantages over the competition, that make a product used in daily life, and that return billions of dollars in cash to their shareholders is key to profiting in any market.

And with the stock market whipsawing as it has been, knowing that your investments have a great track record of holding up nicely in a downturn is a valuable asset in and of itself.

And even if a company like Philip Morris isn't for you, some of the 19 other ideas in my research report may be a better fit.

Why You Should Set Your
Investing Horizon to "Forever"

Forever Stocks is my monthly advisory built entirely around the idea that investing doesn't have to be hard. Or risky.

Instead, all you have to do is find a handful of companies with the telltale "forever" stocks traits: Huge (and lasting) advantages over their competition, conservative balance sheets (including a ton of cash) and investor-friendly practices like dividend increases and share buybacks.

Even though the idea is simple, that doesn't make it easy. After all, most investors don't have time to dig through the world's 46,000-plus stocks to find the absolute best ones.

That's my job. And it's exactly why I spent so much time on each of my monthly recommendations and my latest report, 20 Must-Buy "Forever" Stocks for September 2012.

My career depends on my ability to make good calls, so when I publish these reports, I take a BIG financial risk. If I pick bad stocks, you'll remember. But thanks to my research team's expertise and track record, I'm confident enough in these picks to put my own reputation on the line...

Back in 2009, I resigned from my career as vice president of a hedge fund. I was burned out on "corporate America" and I wanted to follow my passion for helping regular investors.

I was hired to be the president of a new startup called InvestingAnswers. The business literally had one employee -- me. I laugh when I think about it now, but I can tell you back then I tried to keep our humble start a secret.

My new career with InvestingAnswers gave me the freedom to dive headfirst into investor education, even working one-on-one with investing students at the University of Texas.

I started hiring new researchers, analysts and writers to create the stories that would answer my students' questions about investing. And then a funny thing happened...

Our research started to appear on Forbes.com, The Wall Street Journal Online, Nasdaq.com, and Yahoo Finance. People began to see InvestingAnswers knew what it was talking about. We were making investors money.

Over the years, our business has seen phenomenal growth. Headquartered in Austin, Texas, we also have dozens of analysts and researchers from all over the U.S. and Canada.

Today, we publish our research to over 150,000 subscribers. We've quickly become one of the world's most trusted sources of investing education, with almost half a million visitors to our website each month from over 200 countries. In January 2012, we launched our flagship advisory, Forever Stocks.
