Forget Facebook: This Is the Business Story of 2012

The following video is from Wednesday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, as well as analysts Bryan Hinmon and Joe Tenebruso, discuss the top business and investing stories.

In this segment, there is no question that the story of Facebook (NASDAQ: FB  ) was one that really captivated investors this year, but Bryan thinks the much bigger story was the low returns people are getting on long-term Treasury bonds. At 2% yield rates, these bonds aren't even beating inflation, and investors looking for safety are coming away with less purchasing power than they started with.

Investing in stable companies with strong, regularly increasing dividends is a great way to beat inflation. If you're looking for some long-term investing ideas, let me invite you to read the Fool's brand-new special report, "The 3 Dow Stocks Dividend Investors Need."
