A few months ago in this column, we suggested that readers invest for the next 10 years, not the last 10 years. To that end, we compiled a list of stocks that we thought were poised to grow their competitive advantages: stocks with Morningstar Economic Moat Ratings of narrow and wide with positive moat trends. We called this collection “stocks for the next decade.”
A reader asked if there were other ways to peel back this onion, besides focusing on the moat trend data point specifically. Of course, the answer is yes. Investors can consider many different metrics when trying to suss out which stocks may succeed in the future. Moat trend is just one such metric.
