    The 7 Best Long-Term Stocks to Buy for 2019 and Beyond

    [Editor's note: "The 7 Best Long-Term Stocks to Buy for 2019 and Beyond" was previously published in July 2019. It has since been updated to include the most relevant information available.]If you're looking for consistent market success, the best thing you can do is to expand your time horizon. Chasing flavors of the week could profit you in the immediate frame, but too often, an unexpected event can derail your position. However, by picking ideas from the best long-term stocks, you improve your odds significantly.Primarily, a financially sound company's trading dynamics will replicate the law of averages. Nearer-term pressures and unfavorable news events can negatively impact the organization, but in the longer run, the fundamentals take over.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsIn other words, time evens out the volatility. That's not the case for swing trades, where outliers can have a disproportionate effect.Moreover, genuine long-term stocks to buy usually have bullish arguments that extend beyond technical factors. A proven track record is a typically common attribute, as are other tailwinds, such as strong financial performances, or a robust, underlying industry.To better maximize these "patient" investments, investors should focus not just on corporate-growth prospects, but sector growth as well. In many cases, a rising tide lifts all boats, irrespective of individual performance. * 7 Retail Stocks to Buy on the Dip To that end, I present my top seven stocks to buy for the long haul: Wayfair (W)Some trends are significant but difficult to quantify. Others are patently obvious. A prime example is shifting consumer behavior toward e-commerce outlets.Source: Shutterstock Put simply, online sales represent an increasing share of total retail sales. This undeniable fact has always led me to recommend a longer-term position in Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN).I'm not backing away from that opinion. Amazon attracts all customers, but notably those in the middle-income bracket. It's also pushing into extremely lucrative markets like smart speakers.Its role in the economies of tomorrow is assured. But I don't want to keep talking about the same company again . That's why I'm putting Wayfair (NYSE:W) front and center on my long-term stocks to buy list.Wayfair is an online retailer specializing in home goods such as furniture and decorative products. And business has been good, with W generating nearly 45% direct-retail sales growth last year.The problem? Its net income is negative. Coincidentally, that's always been Amazon's issue until a few years ago. So long as shareholders continue to see top-line growth, they appear willing to overlook the bottom line.Over time, Wayfair could end up becoming a smaller version of Amazon, which isn't a bad gig. FedEx (FDX)Being as diplomatic as possible, the Trump administration has been a mixed blessing for the economy. On one hand, Trump has reinvigorated domestic industries, with calls about putting American interests first. But on the other hand, he hasn't produced a great image abroad in the non-Russian part of the world.A sharp consequence of Trump's foreign policy is the ongoing tariff wars with China. With the Asian economic giant being an exporting power, international couriers like FedEx (NYSE:FDX) felt the heat. As an example, FedEx delivered great results for its fourth-quarter fiscal 2018 earnings report. Unfortunately, investors panicked on FDX stock due to shipment-slowdown fears.That's a shame because I strongly view FedEx as one of the best long-term stocks to buy. Outside of the tariff issue, the courier, along with rival United Parcel Service (NYSE:UPS), benefits from the aforementioned e-commerce trend. Consumers are no longer shopping in brick-and-mortar stores in the same volume like prior generations. The positive tailwind for both couriers is readily apparent. * 7 Retail Stocks to Buy on the Dip Critics may counter that Amazon is experimenting on their own delivery service. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: the impact is likely overstated. The economies of scale involved in trying to take down a FedEx or UPS is enormous. Besides, the e-commerce sector will balloon to a size big enough for all current competitors. Welltower (WELL)You hardly think about this when you're younger. But as the earth continues to revolve around the sun, you get closer to the inevitability of old age. After enough complete revolutions, you're at a point where you may no longer physically take care of yourself.Source: Shutterstock Handling the challenges in senior-living solutions is Welltower (NYSE:WELL). Welltower is a real-estate investment trust that focuses largely on senior-housing and assisted-living facilities. The company also specializes in memory-care communities, post-acute care facilities and medical-office properties.The need for Welltower's primary business is obvious. Currently, Baby Boomers represent the largest living generation in the U.S. A significant number of this demographic are already retirement age, and soon, the majority will enter their golden years. That substantially boosts prospects for WELL stock, especially if you have a long-term strategy.Moreover, I believe Welltower's structure as a REIT is an advantage in this sector. Direct plays like Brookdale Senior Living (NYSE:BKD) appear enticing at first. However, look deeper at the financials, and you'll likely discover a flawed opportunity. Welltower better absorbs sector risk by spreading it across multiple properties. Rosetta Stone (RST)I dare say that most Americans take for granted that English is the uncontested international language. Everything that we consume has an English translation. Whenever we go to a foreign country, we can expect at least someone to speak some English.Source: Wesley Fryer via FlickrWe really don't think twice about this dynamic because of historical imperialism. Western values and culture are exported everywhere thanks to ubiquitous brands like Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO) and McDonald's (NYSE:MCD). But how long is this dynamic going to last? Even in our own nation, we're experiencing profound demographic shifts.Internationally, these changes are even more dramatic. Already, Chinese is the most spoken language in the world. Considering that China's population is roughly 1.4 billion, this fact will become further solidified.Here's the bottom line: Whether English remains the international standard, America cannot survive as a monoglot nation. That's where Rosetta Stone (NYSE:RST) comes in. As makers of language-education software, RST provides a critical solution to a growing need.RST has proven its worth in the markets, having jumped 50% so far in 2019. Still, it will require some patience moving forward. The company has had some poor sales and earnings performances in the era of Google Translate. * 7 Retail Stocks to Buy on the Dip However, learning languages isn't about merely translating words, but the meaning behind the words. Foreign language is a vital art that computers can't yet properly duplicate. If Rosetta Stone can sell that message, RST has the chance to consistently surprise. Carvana (CVNA)The previous time I covered online car dealer Carvana (NYSE:CVNA) was as part of a gallery featuring up-and-coming publicly traded organizations. I also mentioned that I was in the market for a new ride. I'm still searching, which has led me to some additional thoughts about CVNA stock.Source: Carvana First, car buying is a real pain in the behind. I spend endless hours looking for the right vehicle. If I find a few that meet my interests, I then have to physically go to the dealership. I haven't gotten around to this step because a) I'm lazy and b) I know I'm in for bitter negotiations.That, of course, is just my personal feelings on the matter … but I'm not the only one who feels this way. According to Time.com contributor Ian Salisbury:"It's long been a rite of passage -- if one that's universally bemoaned -- sitting at a car dealer's cluttered desk, dickering over the price of a new vehicle.But millennials -- used to purchasing everything from music to groceries to hotel stays online -- are starting to change that as a number of major care markers strike deals to sell cars at fixed list prices, according to a report in the Washington Post."This year, more millennials will be in America than members of any other generation. If millennials buy cars, they will increasingly choose the online route. Sorry, shady used-car dealers, but CVNA is about to eat your lunch. 51job (JOBS)Rooster's Lindsey Kline reported that millennials are giving corporate America the bird. But why do Kline and her fellow millenials feel so strongly about corporate employment?Source: ***Karen via FlickrIn her words, she prefers companies cut the BS, and instead provide "office kegs, pool tables, and air hockey." If today's employers can't get with the program, young workers will simply leave.Kline justifies this prideful attitude in that "Millennials are the most educated generation in history. We grew up in the midst of a digital era, and consequently, we're the only generation that doesn't have to adapt to new technologies."Some of you might find this thinking process arrogant, and I would agree. However, don't fight the tape: This is how the working environment operates today. And this points to the reason why I'm long-term bullish on ShiftPixy (NASDAQ:PIXY), especially if the price is right. * 7 Retail Stocks to Buy on the Dip However, this trend isn't exclusively an American one, which is why I'm putting 51job (NASDAQ:JOBS) on my long-term stocks to buy list. 51job is a next-generation employment recruiter and human-resources solutions provider for the young and tech-savvy. Better yet, it's a Chinese company that levers the advantages of a labor force that is over twice the size of the total U.S. population! That's a figure you simply can't ignore. Albemarle (ALB)A few years ago, Goldman Sachs boldly stated that lithium is the new gasoline. Most insiders, though, would probably say that the vaunted financial firm is merely profiting from the obvious. Companies like Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) have long proven that lithium is indeed the next-gen fuel source.Source: fdecomite via Flickr (Modified)But try telling that to the markets. Tesla stock is down 33% so far in 2019, and the lone lithium-based exchange-traded fund, Global X Lithium ETF (NYSEARCA:LIT), is down sharply this past year. Fortunately, so too is domestic-lithium specialist Albemarle (NYSE:ALB).So what's causing this prolonged downfall? While lithium demand is higher, so too is supply. Indeed, as the lithium price soared, more producers wanted in on the action. As a result, Argentina, Australia and Chile have ramped up production to the point where supply greatly exceeds demand. From Economics 101, you know where that situation leads.But like any commodity, the ebb-and-flow is difficult to predict. Sure, oversupply exists today. Tomorrow, that situation can change on a dime. Given that the broader technology industry points toward increased lithium usage, not less, my money is on ALB rising. Consider this lull in Albemarle shares as a discounted opportunity on one of the best long-term stocks to buy.As of this writing, Josh Enomoto did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

    10 Best High-Growth Stocks to Buy for Young Investors

    [Editor's note: This story was previously published in June 2019. It has since been updated and republished.] No investment strategy suits all the people all the time. This is particularly true for young investors in their 20's and 30's. Youth not only has social advantages; it can provide a significant margin for your portfolio to grow. As such, high-growth stocks are ideal for the young-adult, millennial demographic.Talk to any financial advisor, and more often than not, they apply the Pareto principle for 20- or 30-somethings. Colloquially known as the 80-20 rule, advisors recommend that young investors have 80% of their portfolio in stocks, and the remainder in safer, interest-yielding assets. When it comes to millennial stock allocation, spring chickens should really consider high-growth stocks.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Cheap Dividend Stocks to Load Up On Time is money, and in many cases, time is more valuable. That's because time can "buy" you money, but never the opposite way around. In this case, a younger investor's additional working years can help mitigate investments that have gone awry. Moreover, the extra time allows riskier investments to fully expand to their potential.But don't just look into risk-reward ratios for their own sake. Instead, as a young investor in his or her 20s or 30s, you should broaden your horizon. While I'm not against trading current trends, this is a perfect chance to take advantage of longer-term growth forecasts.With that in mind, here are the top 10 high-growth stocks to buy for young investors. Amazon (AMZN)Whenever discussions about high-growth stocks arise, Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) invariably makes most analysts' lists.Source: Shutterstock What's not to like here? Not only does AMZN leverage an enviable track record in the markets, management continues to forge ahead into new frontiers. Amazon is a disruptor among disruptors.But sometimes, high-growth stocks are so obvious that they're not obvious. We all know the adage that what goes up must come down. This applies to any investment, and AMZN is no exception.As I previously discussed, AMZN is on the verge of unprecedented greatness. Those of you who are in your 20's and 30's have some recollection of a time when ecommerce didn't overwhelmingly dominate the retail sector. But we're so close to a generation coming of age that has no clue about the prior brick-and-mortar hegemony.When Generation Z enters the workforce en masse, they will buy through Amazon and other e-commerce channels, no question. That's why you must consider AMZN stock. Carvana (CVNA)Carvana (NYSE:CVNA) takes a brilliant concept and brings it into fruition. Generally speaking, millennials don't share the same love for the automobile as did prior generations.Source: Carvana Part of the decline in interest is the haggling over the price that used to be a given when buying a new car.Enter Carvana. CVNA combines the tech wizardry that young people love with a centuries-old retail industry. Rather than negotiate with pushy or unsavory salespeople, buyers can instead browse cars online. When they find one they like, CVNA delivers their vehicle to their driveway. Plus, Carvana offers a money-back guarantee to soothe concerns about buying a car sight (almost) unseen. * 10 Stocks Under $5 to Buy for Fall Considering that young people do nearly everything online, Carvana is likely the future of car buying. That's one reason to buy CVNA stock. The other? Margins. Once the company firmly establishes itself, it has the potential to earn serious bucks. That's because CVNA charges a premium for its convenient services.So far, though, customers are willing to pay it, and that trend will continue with Gen Z coming aboard. TriNet Group (TNET)For those of you who have worked in Fortune 500 companies, you realize the intensity of large-scale organizations. In order to handle the needs of tens of thousands of workers, the biggest companies employ the best human-resources team. But what the needs of small and mid-sized businesses? That's where TriNet Group (NYSE:TNET) comes in.Source: Shutterstock TNET provides full-service HR for companies that are still in their growth phase. Essentially an outsourced HR firm, TNET offers comprehensive services for smaller organizations, but without the massive overhead.Therefore, management can concentrate its resources on its expansion strategies.TNET stock also makes sense from an industry trend point of view. Experts predict that by the year 2020, an astounding half of the U.S. workforce could be comprised of freelancers. Additionally, small businesses that employ fewer than 100 workers are not only becoming more prominent, they're collectively hiring millions annually.This new digital economy will require HR services. As a result, you'll want to keep a close eye on TNET stock. Canopy Growth Corp (CGC)The legal-marijuana industry generates significant controversy. However, one thing cannot be denied: high-growth stocks levered towards cannabis have been hot and a little more volatile than one might prefer. One such name is Canopy Growth Corp (NYSE:CGC).Source: Shutterstock Volatility aside, I'm digging CGC primarily because it's the most well-capitalized marijuana investment. Canopy sported a $14 billion-plus market cap, substantially higher than Aurora Cannabis' (NYSE:ACB) $7.7 billion.As InvestorPlace's own Bret Kenwell pointed out, that market cap rivals several well-known companies, including Macy's (NYSE:M) and Chipotle (NYSE:CMG).Ultimately, Kenwell advised to wait for a correction on CGC before jumping onboard, and that may now have happened. Either way, young investors must keep CGC on their shortlist. * 15 Growth Stocks to Buy for the Long Haul By the time millennials are looking at retirement, marijuana will have lost its Schedule I classification -- likely long before this point. History shows that the Prohibition era failed to curb Americans' desire for alcohol. History will eventually prove the same for cannabis.Indeed, as the Pew Research Center demonstrates, attitudes towards legalization have shifted positively. It's only a matter of time before the government listens to the will of the people. When that day comes, CGC will explode even higher. Square (SQ)Square's (NYSE:SQ) appeal is immediately recognizable to anyone who observes business trends.Source: Shutterstock As we discussed for TriNet Group, small businesses have grown rapidly since the Great Recession. Given the nature of technology in our lives, companies today value agility and specialization more than outright size.What makes SQ stock a compelling investment is that it evens the playing field for small businesses. Square provides portable credit-card readers that attach conveniently to your smartphone. That enables entities ranging from sole proprietors to small corporations to quickly setup a payment platform. * 7 Safe Dividend Stocks for Investors to Buy Right Now Another factor driving SQ stock for the longer term? An increasing number of Americans are going cashless. According to a CNBC report late-last year, 50% of surveyed individuals reported they only carry cash half of the time they're out and about. Those that do carry cash usually hold $50 or less.Logically, this means we should see fewer cash-only businesses moving forward. And the types of businesses that would have once been cash only will likely gravitate towards Square's unique and convenient solution. Despite SQ stock's bumpy year, it still has added nearly 10% since January. Control4 (CTRL)I first covered Control4 (NASDAQ:CTRL) in late July of this year. Since then, CTRL stock has jumped as much as 47% in the markets only to come tumbling down and then rally again, climbing 45% in the past three months.Source: Shutterstock Like the other mentioned names, CTRL will likely gain on broader social trends, making it a strong pick for young investors and a potential high-growth stock.Control4 specializes in home-automation solutions, providing clients with interconnectivity benefits along with security. Given that anything can happen these days, people love the peace of mind of having an integrated smart-home system.But beyond the practicality that Control4's products and services provide, its target audience is extremely receptive to the company's offerings.Experts forecast that by the year 2020, home automation will become a $40 billion industry. Further, 47% of millennials own smart-home products. And 81% of prospective homebuyers are likely to select a home that has installed automation services. General Electric (GE)General Electric (NYSE:GE) is a controversial pick for many reasons, but the biggest is this: for years, GE has become a negative-growth stock. Why on earth would I then include it among high-growth stocks?Source: JPstock / Shutterstock.com Admittedly, the idea isn't conventional and considering its history, GE stock is incredibly risky. The markets agree, selling it off by 55% last year alone. But recently it's been making a comeback and the opportunity is enticingly lucrative.That sentiment is doubly valid for young investors who have the extra margin to patiently wait out the current trouble.The question everybody asks is if management can truly turn this sinking ship around. While speculative, I think GE has a legitimate chance. * 7 Stocks Under $7 to Invest in Now Analysts appear to be bearish on General Electric because of its lagging Power division. The fear is that renewable energy will overrun the company.I say, not so fast! While renewable energy "works," it's still economically inefficient and while this is being corrected, GE has time to adapt, whether that means growing its own renewable energy offerings or compensating for lost revenue in other areas.That's the ticket for GE stock. However, it will take time, which suits young investors perfectly. Voyager Therapeutics (VYGR)As millions of families worldwide can attest, watching a loved one suffer from a neurological disease is a painful journey. It can also be agonizingly frustrating as a once proud and independent person succumbs to physical and mental ailments.Source: Shutterstock Voyager Therapeutics (NASDAQ:VYGR) aims to put an end to this scourge, and I give them all my blessings. Utilizing a common, naturally occurring virus called adeno-associated virus (AAV) as a "treatment carrier," VYGR scientists propose to target diseased cells for repair.A significant advantage for using AAVs is their long lifespans. A single dose could potentially lead to lifelong benefits.The technology is very promising but VYGR is still relatively in the early phase. Naturally, Voyager's financials aren't the greatest, and its share price is volatile.However, if the company manages a breakthrough, we will witness a paradigm shift in how we approach ailments such as Parkinson's disease, and it will become a hig-growth stockFurthermore, gene therapy holds the key for solving a multitude of other diseases. VYGR is among a few high-growth stocks that could spark a medical revolution. Young investors should carefully watch this space. Kinross Gold (KGC)Although regular readers probably know my work involving cryptocurrencies and cannabis, I'm also a believer in gold.Source: Jeremy Vohwinkle via Flickr (Modified)At the risk of sounding like some 2 a.m. infomercial, a healthy portfolio should include some physical precious metals, or at least SPDR Gold Shares (NYSEARCA:GLD).But for those who want to take a little bit of risk, I'd look into Kinross Gold (NYSE:KGC).As with many other high-growth stocks in the gold sector, KGC has a shaky history. Primarily, Kinross made expensive acquisitions at or near the gold bubble earlier this decade. Investors subsequently punished KGC stock. * 3 Monthly Dividend Stocks to Buy Today However, the shares have rebounded 21% over the last month as gold prices have increased to multi-year highs. And with the geopolitical and international trade outlook growing more uncertain, there's a good chance that gold prices will keep climbing for a long time.It's not a perfect story, but young investors have the time to wait out KGC, which looks poised to become a high-growth stock. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHVYF)I'm going to close my list of high-growth stocks with a contrarian play, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (OTCMKTS:MHVYF) a core company of the Mitsubishi Group. Source: Shutterstock With many Asian investments focusing on Chinese companies, it's easy to forget about Japan. However, I think this is a misstep that young investors should capitalize on, and MHVYF is ideal for this purpose.Let's pick the low-hanging fruit first. MHVYF is a renowned manufacturer of mining and industrial equipment.Although purely conjecture, Mitsubishi could play a significant role in Japan becoming a natural-resource exporter. According to CNBC, Japanese researchers found a "semi-infinite" amount of rare earth metals off Minamitorishima Island.Before you get too excited, the critical metals were discovered in the deep-sea bed, so currently, it's not economically feasible to extract them. However, where there's a will there's a way, and Mitsubishi could play a significant role. If so, this could launch MHVYF.Another trend working in Mitsubishi's favor is military conflict. With unpredictable North Korea mere miles away, Japan needs to beef up its defenses. I'm not talking about another war, but rather, a show of force to dissuade enemy attacks and provocations. Mitsubishi is one of Japan's major military contractors, and all geopolitical events point towards a rising MHVYF share price.As of this writing, Josh Enomoto is long gold bullion.
