On February 6, a group of 653 men and women from the U.S., Canada and the United Kingdom gathered in a private conference room in Boca Raton, Florida.
But this wasn't just any conference. The average person's net worth in this room was $75 million.
All these rich people were there for the same reason: They were sick and tired of walking around with a bullseye on their backs. You see, banks, private equity firms, hedge funds, and brokerage firms see the wealthy as "easy targets". These are people they can siphon fees off of -- and make a killing.
As one attendee -- a former executive in five different companies -- put it, "I felt the advice I was getting was always tainted."
Two others discovered they were using the same investment advisor, but one of them was paying more for the exact same service.
Another one called stock brokers and wealth managers a "den of thieves" who want to "make themselves money first, then their clients."
So... with nowhere to go, and nobody they could trust with their money, they turned to each other.
Call it a support group for paranoid multimillionaires.
And what they did at the meeting is unlike anything I’ve ever heard of…
Over three days, each person in the room was forced to present their personal portfolios to everyone in the room. They had to defend their investment choices in front of 652 other people who have proven they know how to make money.
Can you imagine?
Most people don't want to talk about how much they spent on dinner last night, let alone disclose their entire nest egg.
As one attendee put it, "defending my portfolio was like taking my clothes off in public." But he says the grueling hours, heated debates, and harsh critiques were 100% worth it.
Like the rest of us, it turns out the wealthy are looking for reliable investments that can protect AND grow their wealth.
Now here's the really shocking thing...
You see, every person in that Florida conference room this past February had made their money in different ways: Stocks, bonds, real estate, private equity, tech startups, and many other ventures...
But of all the different techniques and strategies that were discussed among this elite group of millionaires, the same seven stocks kept appearing over and over again.
These are regular common stocks you can buy in any brokerage account. And they all share a few common key traits.
Around our research office, we just call them our "Forever" stocks. We've talked about them so much over the past few years, the nickname is just easier. Everyone here knows exactly what we're talking about.
These Forever Stocks are exactly the kind of investment the rich want: Solid investments they can buy once and forget about. When you've accumulated $75 million, you don't want to spend your time obsessing over your portfolio. You want to be free to enjoy your wealth.
That's the basic lesson these wealthy people taught me. And now I want to share it with you.
It took me two months of research to bring everything together, and the result is a brand-new report titled: "The 7 Best Stocks to Hold Forever."
Put simply, this is the set of stocks you could buy today and hold for the long haul. With these stocks in your portfolio, you will worry less about things like inflation or deflation... bear markets or recessions... flash-crashes or rising interest rates.
In fact, the large majority of these "Forever" stocks have doubled and tripled the return of the market over the past decade (keep in mind these returns start at the peak of the financial crisis, so these are the returns even after suffering the worst correction since the Great Depression).
Although there are no guarantees, we're confident these stocks have the potential to deliver steady, market-beating gains for years to come.
This sort of "worry free" performance is exactly the reason many of the world's richest investors, politicians and businessmen have owned shares of these stocks for years, using them to stay ahead of the market.
We're talking about investors like Warren Buffett, Carlos Slim, along with dozens of Congressmen.
Forever Stock #1 is what I call the "perfect stock." It's already a household name, with more than a billion of its products in use. It's nearly twice as profitable as Apple and Google.
In fact, this company is more profitable than 98% of the firms in the S&P 500. Its stock has shot up 664% in the past 10 years, crushing the 53% gain of the S&P 500.
Forever Stock #3 is simply one of the most shareholder-friendly companies I've ever seen. Since 2008, the company has more than doubled dividend payouts while buying back nearly half a billion shares. That’s why the wealthy love this company so much. They can just sit back and cash a check that gets bigger every quarter.
Forever Stock #5 owns one of the most popular brands on the planet, and sales are surging. But because its product is so commonplace, millions of investors overlook the stock. That's a shame, because they’re missing out on a massive opportunity to own this dominant company.
Now here's what I'd like to do...
