A boring company can provide wonderful long term compound returns

in money •  4 months ago 

This boring company has been in a steady uptrend.

If you look at history some of the greatest long term compounding stories are in boring companies such as materials, chemicals, retail, insurance, etc. In today's era of high flying tech it is hard to believe that any other investment strategy can provide similar returns with less risk. However, a safe, steady business model can lead to big profits.

Cintas (CTAS) is a $30 billion provider of uniforms, logo mats and industrial carpet and tile cleaning. The company has 400 facilities in North America working with more than 1 million businesses. This boring company has been showing solid results growing sales 7% over the last 12 months.


The share price has been anything but boring for long term investors growing almost 200% over the last five years. Cintas stock should continue to do well as other businesses continue to grow and need more uniforms and work supplies.
