For Long-Term Investors, “Boring” Works

While trading in the markets can be exciting, it’s best to balance a portfolio with some long-term opportunities as well.

  • Investing in value and dividend-focused stocks can be as boring as watching the paint dry, but over time, it can also help lead to great returns. Plus, companies that can consistently outperform are likely to continue paying out increasing dividends well into the future.

    One company for investors to consider is RPM International (RPM). They have over 50 years of dividend growth, thanks to their product line of home products such as caulk and paint.

    RPM shares are flat over the past year, and revenues are up just 4 percent. But slow and steady can pay off well over time.

    Action to take: Investors looking for a long-term income play should consider starting a stake in RPM now. The current yield is just under 1.8 percent. But it’s the long-term growth of the dividend that can lead to great returns over time.

  • For traders, the stock has been trending higher in recent weeks. That trend is likely to continue. The February 2024 $105 calls, last going for about $4.50, are a at-the-money trade that could turn any further move higher in the coming weeks into mid-double-digit returns.
