Since I’ve been going through through the Forbes Best Small Companies, a brief look at the Best Big Companies is deserved. The list is comprised of 400 companies and Forbes sorts the list according to a 5 year total return.
Given that many large caps are still mispriced, but not all cheap, these candidates could be worthwhile long term buy and hold additions on declines.
|Name||5-Year Total Return %||Sales ($bil)||Net Income ($mil)||Industry|
|Southwestern Energy||68.1||2.2||535||Oil & Gas Operations|
|Apple||54.6||32.5||4,834||Technology Hardware & Equip|
|Spartan Stores||37.9||2.6||40||Food Markets|
|EOG Resources||32.8||6.6||2,337||Oil & Gas Operations|
|Village Super Market||31.4||1.2||25||Food Markets|
|Hess||29.2||43.3||2,944||Oil & Gas Operations|
|Express Scripts||28.8||21.2||708||Health Care Equipment & Svcs|
|28.5||20.9||5,051||Software & Services|
|XTO Energy||27.6||7.3||2,025||Oil & Gas Operations|
|Psychiatric Solutions||27.2||1.7||104||Health Care Equipment & Svcs|
|CME Group||26.6||2.4||855||Diversified Financials|
|Occidental Petroleum||26.4||26.0||7,866||Oil & Gas Operations|
|Precision Castparts||25.5||7.1||1,071||Aerospace & Defense|
|Bucyrus International||25.1||2.3||230||Capital Goods|
|Gilead Sciences||25.0||5.0||1,845||Drugs & Biotechnology|
|Devon Energy||24.8||15.7||5,984||Oil & Gas Operations|
There are some well known names as well as some that I have never heard of before. I wont be going the full length of all 400 but will consider taking a look after completion of the Forbes Best Small Companies.
