    Look at companies that make a product used the world over, used up quickly, creating the need to buy more. Example: toothpaste, soap, cleaning supplies, etc (Proctor & Gamble, one company in this business, sells the world over. Not only have they made money consistently, but they have made enough to be able to raise their dividend each year for the past 51 years). How many companies have raised their dividends for even half that many years?

    Enron!

    Yes, over 10 years ago Enron was considered the best large company to own. Enron doesn't exhist anymore. The stock went to $0.00.

    So.... your question should be;

    ".....what stocks meet my asset allocation model for safety,growth and diversification"?

    Also.... be careful with the answers you get here. One of the answers suggests buying RCA. RCA was bought by GE over 20 years ago. RCA is not an independent public company.

    Don't look for the easy way out (depending on Yahoo Answers). Learn investing.

    There is no way to know in advance which company is best. Investing in a diversified portfolio is the soundest strategy for long term investing.

    Look at the consumer staples sector - it has proctor & gamble, coca cola, pepsi, nestle, colgate palmolive etc. Things people use often.

    Also, blue chips.. companies that have been around going great for awhile: Microsoft, Google, Apple, Walmart...

    youtube, yahoo, microsoft, mac.... these days, basically anything that has anything to do with computers.

    genital electric, RCA, etc. are also an OK choice.
