A solid waste management company in a defensive sector that is fragmented; this allows WM to buy smaller companies. WM has done well, but it's now too expensive to enter. There's also some cyclicality here, so in a slowdown there may be less garbage from the industrial space.

If your time horizon is 5 years, you can hold this name. Valuations tend to be higher, and dividends lower. Industry is ripe for consolidation. Once the services are in place, you just need a little price increase here and there and you get organic growth. Stable.

Recession resilient. Trash is good business, especially when times are tough. We're in late cycle, with a slowdown down the road. Great chart. Higher highs and lows. 25x earnings, low beta, 9% growth. Largest out there right now, and continue to grow by acquisition. (Analysts’ price target is $123.00)
