  1. Hey DM,

    Awesome post. Two of my stocks made the list (KO and XOM). I used to own PFE and P&G but had to sell them, which I still regret, but you have to make the best decision at the time. Goal is to own KO and XOM for the long haul this time. I’ll have to check back on this post for when I want to increase the number of stocks I own in my portfolio.

    1. Data Lore,
      I already made my 1st investment from this list into Pfizer (PFE) after I created this list. I am glad you found this helpful. I am also looking at purchasing more stocks from this list.
      Thank you, DM
