In the following video, Fool contributor Matt Thalman discuss two stocks within the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJINDICES:^DJI) that he thinks are built to stand the test of time. Not only have Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG) and 3M (NYSE:MMM) each been around for more than 110 years, but Matt says they have what it takes to be around for another 100, with their products all around us every day, often without our realizing it. That these companies have so deeply integrated themselves into our daily lives is what Matt says makes them winners for the long run.
Matt doesn't think we could live without these companies. Watch the video and let us know if you agree.
