Speaking of stock markets in general, the market is typically focused on the most recent star performers.

You will often find the likes of HUL or HDFC Bank being the market darlings for never having a disappointing quarter.

But it is rare to find companies that thrive through most of their survival period.

Tanushree Banerjee shares few of her thoughts on this. Here's an excerpt of what she wrote in a recent edition of The 5 Minute WrapUp...

  • It is rare to find companies that survive for decades. It's even rarer to find ones that thrive through most of their survival period.

    So, if you do not wish to pay steep valuations for the market darlings, you need to look for the companies with history and consistency on their side.

    And they shouldn't be too conspicuous to the market either.

    I am talking of companies like Hawkins and City Union Bank. They have a track record of paying dividends for decades.

    The dividends such companies pay are especially helpful at a time when globally interest rates are headed lower.
