3 Stocks for the Next Decade
We think these companies are poised to experience meaningful economic benefits in the future.
Although there were certainly bumps along the way, overall the 2010s was a terrific decade for stock investors: The S&P 500 returned about 13% annually during those 10 years. Notably, some of the index's heaviest-weighted components are up far more than that. For instance, Apple (AAPL) has returned about 27% annually--and Amazon.com (AMZN), 30% per year.
Such stock market successes are often well deserved. During the past 10 years, many of the market's best performers (including those mentioned above) have carved out economic moats, thanks to their innovation, brand, scale or network effect, and investors have rewarded them for it.
