Some investors may look to fundamentally strong large cap stocks to help diversify certain portfolios. Usually, they don’t gain as rapidly as mid cap or small cap stocks, but they are generally considered safer.

Therefore, investing in large cap stocks may be looked at as a long-term strategy. Today, let’s look at three large cap stocks that trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX).

Suncor Energy Inc (TSX:SU)

One of Canada’s biggest energy companies, Suncor has a market cap of C$59 billion. The SU stock closed Wednesday at C$41.27.

Suncor’s dividend yield is over four per cent and its quarterly dividend is C$0.42. The stock has gained nearly 55 per cent in a year.
