Warren Buffett has for years championed a strategy of buying shares of companies that are made to last, a strategy he put to work in some of his most famous investments, such as See’s Candies and Coca Cola. 

Traditionally, Canadian investors have been told to do the same when deciding which stocks to put in their RRSPs, with the hope being that similar blue-chip names will continue to grow, allowing Canadians to cash out substantial gains for retirement. 

It’s important to remember, however, that buy and hold is never a sure thing.
