These are the best survivor firms from the past 50 years. Top 10 with annual return.
|Proctor & Gamble||14.26%|
|Royal Dutch Shell||13.64%|
Note that all are either consumer brand names or pharmaceutical with the exception of Royal Dutch Shell and Crane. There are no tech stocks with the exception of Crane (industrial products). None of these obtained a 20% return by themself. If you wanted to beat Buffett's 22% you needed to buy and sell.
