9 Dividend Stocks to Buy and Hold Forever

It's normal to look at the state of the stock market in 2022 and wonder how your portfolio should change. Major indexes are still underwater after three months of trading, there is uncertainty around Federal Reserve interest rate policy, and the war in Ukraine is roiling commodity and energy markets worldwide. But as Sir John Templeton famously wrote in his 16 rules for investment success, "The investor who says, 'This time is different,' when in fact it's virtually a repeat of an earlier situation, has uttered among the four most costly words in the annals of investing." Yes, there's uncertainty in this moment – but don't panic! In the long run, the stock market has always found a way to thrive. If you want to move past the day-to-day uncertainty and instead focus on building long-term wealth, then consider these nine dividend stocks to buy and hold forever.
