In the investment world, it's easy to get caught up in the day-to-day noise. But, a lot of that day-to-day noise amounts to nothing more than irrelevant distractions that do not materially impact the big picture. As such, when investing, it's often best to take a step back, and see the forest through the trees.Source: Castleski / Shutterstock.com When you do that with Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL, NASDAQ:GOOG) stock, it becomes obvious why investors have reason to be optimistic about Alphabet stock in the long run.Specifically, this company has been, still is, and projects to remain, the backbone of the world's most used and valuable private good -- the internet.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Retail Stocks to Buy on the Dip As the backbone of the internet, Alphabet is at the epicenter of the secular growth digital ad market. This will keep growing at a healthy pace over the next several years, and Alphabet will remain the dominant player. At the same time, Alphabet has multiple tangential growth drivers -- data-centers, self-driving, smart home, cloud gaming, etc. -- which will help support robust revenue and profit growth for a long time.As revenues and profits trend higher in the long run, so will GOOGL stock.Consequently, I remain bullish on Alphabet stock for the long haul. The fundamentals are simply too good to pass up on, and the valuation leaves plenty of room for big upside over the next few years. Long-Term Outlook Is FavorableThe first part of the long-term bull thesis on Alphabet stock is that this company's long-term fundamentals and growth prospects are highly favorable.Although history is not a clear indicator of the future, it is nonetheless important to see what Alphabet has done over the past decade and to see where the company may go over the next decade. Consider the following:* Alphabet's revenues have risen at a 20% compounded annual growth rate over the past decade, faster than the global digital ad market's ~16% growth rate during that same stretch (from 2008 to 2018).* Alphabet's operating profits have risen at a 17% compounded annual growth rate over the past decade, inclusive of 2018's depressed margins.* GOOGL stock is up more than 400% over the past decade.That's an impressive track record of consistent and robust revenue, profit, and share price growth for Alphabet. It lays the groundwork for continued success over the next several years.The digital ad market projects to keep growing for the foreseeable future, as global consumption continues to pivot into the digital channel. Despite rising competition, Alphabet projects to remain the global leader in that market, mostly because YouTube and Google Search are irreplaceable titans in the digital ecosystem.Beyond the digital ad business, Alphabet's cloud business will continue on its rapid growth trajectory as a continued surge in data volume globally will translate into increased data-center usage. The hardware business will gain traction with new products like Google Stadia. The self-driving Waymo business will start to produce meaningful revenue once self-driving taxi services become a real thing.The long term outlook supporting GOOGL stock remains broadly robust. Alphabet Stock Valuation Leaves Room For UpsideThe second part of the long-term bull thesis on Alphabet stock is that the current valuation leaves plenty of room for upside over the next several years.The global digital ad market is projected to slow over the next few years. But, into 2025, it is projected to grow at a 10%-plus annualized pace. Alphabet's ad growth rates will likely be slower, as the company cedes market share to up-and-coming digital ad companies like Snap (NYSE:SNAP) and Pinterest (NYSE:PINS). But, that lagging ad growth rate will be more than offset by 20%-plus growth rates from the cloud, hardware, and self-driving businesses.Assuming roughly 10% growth out of the ad business and roughly 20% growth out of everything else, Alphabet should be able to grow revenues at a 10%-15% rate over the next several years. Margins -- which are already stabilizing after several years of compression at the hands of a shift to lower-margin mobile advertising -- should move higher as the company's up-and-coming businesses gain sufficient scale to drive meaningful operating leverage.Alphabet very realistically projects as a double-digit revenue grower over the next several years with sizable margin drivers. That paves a visible runway for EPS to eclipse $100 by 2025. Based on a historically average 20-times forward multiple, that implies a 2024 price target of $2,000-plus for Alphabet stock.Alphabet stock trades hands below $1,200 today. Thus, over the next few years, Alphabet stock has fundamentally supported visibility to nearly 70% gains. Bottom Line on GOOGL StockWhen it comes GOOGL stock, the best thing to do is take a step back and see the forest through the trees. When you do that, it becomes clear that all this digital ad regulation, big tech break-up, compressing margins, and slowing growth noise is just … well, noise.In the big picture, Alphabet is the backbone of the internet, at the epicenter of a secular growth digital ad market, and supported by multiple tangential growth drivers in cloud, hardware, and self-driving. That big picture translates into one simple fact: revenues and profits will move meaningfully higher over the next five years.So will GOOGL stock.As of this writing, Luke Lango was long GOOG.

[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.
