I don't normally do this but I can't help linking to this article by TheStreet.com. The Street is touting 6 names as the Top 6 Consumer Goods Stocks for 2010, and by George I own 4 of them.
Scotts Miracle Gro (SMG)
Procter & Gamble (PG)
Phillip Morris (PM)
Johnson & Johnson (JNJ)
The article does provide some good insight into the expected fortunes of these six firms as they move into 2010. With the exception of SMG they are all great dividend raisers as well. I agree that these are 6 very good companies to own shares in for the long term, especially if they can be acquired at reasonable value.
