Below is a chart comparing these three companies to the S&P 500’s performance over the past five years.
The Foolish Bottom Line…
Colgate-Palmolive Company (NYSE:CL), Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG), and Costco Wholesale Corporation (NASDAQ:COST) have all done tremendous jobs of growing their companies, treating employees well, and showing consistency to investors. They all offer great opportunities for customers and employees, but they also manage to make money and keep shareholders happy at the same time. In my opinion, these are all companies that should be considered “buys” by investors, and are surely three of the top companies in America.
Reminder: Check back for the next two posts with the remaining seven companies that I consider the top ten in America.
