Quality defensive for the next year?

Quite defensive. Last quarter, WM cited lower costs and favourable pricing trends. 9% growth rate, but 23x. With all the carnage on the side of the highway, you don't need to be paying this much. Look in other areas.

Classified as an industrial, but it doesn't have cyclicality. Zero product obsolescence. Sold WCN in favour of this one.

SELL
Waste Management

Great, stable business model. Wide economic moat, barriers to entry. Streamlined costs. Tends to do well in more of a down or sideways market, similar to healthcare or consumer staples. Started to underperform last October. Decent yield of 1.67%.

TOP PICK
Waste Management
Biggest and best in class in US solid waste. Collection, recycling, transfer, and landfill. A light industrial, because waste collection is a need. Pricing power not as strong, but volume makes up for it. Integrated ownership of landfills avoids NIMBY issues. A-rated balance sheet, almost bullet-proof. Dividend growth 6% annually, earnings about 8%. Yield is 1.81%. (Analysts’ price target is $171.25)

COMMENT
Waste Management
The biggest player in the waste-disposal business. They are tied to the economy--more commerce and construction business translates into more garbage. That's why this stock has been falling in he last two weeks. They reported an in-line quarter today, neither inflaming the bears or bulls.
environmental
DON'T BUY
Waste Management
Earnings and price stability. Collecting garbage doesn't go away despite the economy. Trades at close to 30x earnings, which is excessive for a relatively slow grower. Sees more downside risk than upside potential.
environmental
DON'T BUY
Waste Management
A very good company that is classified as recession proof and highly predictable. Yields on their collection business is firming and prices of recycling is good. Trades at 30x earnings. Traditionally a 5-6% grower. Unless they pick up more contracts, they will continue to grow according to economic growth. Valuation is too high here.
