Hold These 2 Rising Stocks for 20 Years  

1. Apple One of the "Magnificent Seven" stocks that established Nasdaq Composite and S&P 500 records this year is Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL). The iPhone maker's stock is up 18.4% for the year, setting records. Although revenue declined to $210.3 billion in the first half of fiscal 2024, the corporation is solid.  

Apple's first-two quarter net income grew 6.3% to $57.6 billion and Services revenue reached a record. The company increased its quarterly dividend to $0.25 and free cash flow to $58.2 billion, up 4.2%.  

New personal AI system Apple Intelligence for the iPhone, iMac, and iPad may provide more good news. Using generative AI models, Apple Intelligence will simplify and enhance productivity with iOS 18. Only the latest iPhone models can manage Apple Intelligence's computing power, so Apple may expect a huge device upgrade wave to boost sales.  

Singapore, mainland China, Hong Kong, and Japan sell Apple Vision Pro spatial computing headsets. With just your eyes and hands, this breakthrough technology enables immersive video viewing and greater productivity. Apple's innovation and customer loyalty make it worth keeping the stock for decades as it attracts additional customers.  

2. Netflix TV streaming is dominated by Netflix. The company distributes original movies, TV series, and documentaries to members. Netflix stock has risen 42% year to far, and if it keeps making good content, investors may see more potential.  

Netflix's revenue rose from $29.7 billion in 2021 to $33.7 billion in 2023. Net income climbed from $5.1 billion to $5.4 billion, and the corporation generates positive free cash flow annually. In Q1 2024, revenue jumped 14.8% to $9.4 billion and net income 79% to $2.3 billion. Netflix membership has grown gradually. Membership climbed 22% to 269.6 million in Q1 2024 from 221.8 million in 2021.  

Netflix has less than 10% TV viewership in almost every country, suggesting it may expand its programming to attract more subscribers. Multiple million-view titles and the most Academy Award nominations for three of the past four years have come from the company's in-house productions.  

Netflix is phasing down its $11.99 cheapest ad-free option while expanding its global ad-supported packages. Netflix hopes its 250 million members will keep paying more for its diverse content. Live comedy, sports, and music concerts will boost member pleasure. Netflix's market leadership, enormous growth runway, and consistent investment in great content should enhance profits and cash flows.
