Distributor of pharmaceutical products and services. Gets away from litigation risks. Volumes are big and margins are low but everything flows to the bottom line. Growing dividends by about 20% a year for the last decade. Have been buying back shares even after the stock options reduced the share count by about 10% a year for the past 5 years. Recent acquisition is a stepping stone into the rest of the world outside of the US.

(A top pick Sept 3/03. Up 14½%.) Not for the faint of heart. The margins are a bit thin in this company but generally the return on invested capital and the cash flow generated is significant.
