Look into Kodiak Oil and Gas. As for those touting Google, who the hell has 700+ dollars to spend per share? The market cap is too large and will contract here in the next 1-3 years. Question was stock for life. There are no tech stocks that will be held for life.

I know i suggested KMI and i do believe it bc of the pipelines and how big natural gas will be but Im telling you call me crazy but MO is the stock you wanna hold for life bar none....
1)best performing stock of the last century 2)smoking rates are decling compared to the 70s yes but the overall number of smokers is the same 3)theyre big in chewing tobacco,beer,and wine....seriously 4)monster dividend that has increased annually for over 30 years 5)wait till marijuana is legal, who do you think is gonna do it big 6)the govt needs the tax dollars bad so a.weed will be legal b.states wont raise cigarette taxes and possibly bite themselves in the butt
I know lots of people have qualms investing in this but trust me cigarettes but altria is that and more. Cigarettes are the kinda thing where some people buy them before food or rent.....and you want the stock price depressed as much as possible so your drip can add more and more shares..

quote: I would say a stock like McDonalds would be one of the safest picks you could make if you had to choose a single company. I'm not sure what makes a Megachip company with the brand equity of McDonalds volatile in the future? Especially when comparing its risks to the risks of an oil or tech company.
Something an unhealthy as McDonald's is not a sure thing in the future. As medicine learns more about the effect these foods have on our bodies, fast food could easily take a plunge.

quote: No food or beverage company should be mentioned. Way too volatile to consider way into the future.
Walmart and Amazon are also too risky given commoditizing of what they actually offer (even though they do it better than everyone else right now).
I agree but I believe Walmart will always be a hot item for at least until I die. Its they just offer so much they are such a massive distributor. I believe Walmarts profits will remain steady and continue to improve!!
