Legendary value investor Warren Buffett is one of the leading pitchmen for long-term, buy-and-hold investing. The man behind Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B (opens in new tab)) targets stocks to buy not just by identifying great values, but great companies that still will be competitive years, even decades down the line.

Indeed, one of Buffett’s famous quotes is: “If you don’t feel comfortable owning something for 10 years, then don’t own it for 10 minutes.” And you can do worse than follow this tip from one of the world’s most renowned investors.

Today, we’ll look at seven stocks to buy with hopes of holding them for at least the next decade. Using TipRanks’ stock screener (opens in new tab), we have identified several stocks that have a consensus “Strong Buy” analyst rating, and thus have a confident backing from Wall Street. From this group, we have culled some of the most intriguing longer-term picks.

One note: While most “buy-and-hold” lists typically are swamped with slow-growth dividend picks, this group of stocks includes several companies that deliver no income and still are well in the midst of their growth ramps. But all of these picks have plenty of runway left.

Data is as of April 30, 2018. Consensus price targets and ratings based on “Best Performing” analysts. Click on ticker-symbol links in each slide for current share prices and more.
