Core Holding

A stock in a portfolio that one holds for the long-term. For example, if one buys a blue-chip stock and never sells it, this is considered a core holding in one's portfolio. Stocks that investors include in their core holdings are usually relatively low-risk and have a history of a solid (if not very large) return.
