It's a pricey market, and finding solid stocks to buy and hold for the long haul is becoming increasingly difficult. With the market at all-time highs, reasonably priced, excellent businesses are becoming a rare commodity. But there are still solid picks out there for long-term investors, Fool contributor Daniel Sparks argues in the video below. Particularly, Sparks has his eyes on JPMorgan (NYSE: JPM ) and Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ: ISRG ) .
Sure, they both have their fair share of problems. JPMorgan is carrying the weight of the litigation it acquired through its purchases of Washington Mutual and Bear Stearns during the financial crisis. Intuitive Surgical has gone from a growth stock just one year ago to reporting its first year-over-year decline in quarterly revenue in the company's history. But despite their problems, Sparks suggests they're worthy of your watchlist. Find out why in the video below.
