A global leader in payroll. It is a dividend aristocrat. While the economy is relatively buoyant we will see continued growth. If you see it in a sell off then it is one to pickup. (Analysts’ price target is $177.33)

45 consecutive quarters of dividend increases. It benefits from rising interest rates, but also quite insulated through the cycle as well. They are now expanding into the small to medium sized companies offering payroll services. Yield 2.1% (Analysts’ price target is $154.22)

A payroll and HR company. A fairly pricey stock. Trades at about a 40% premium to the market. 70% of their business comes from payroll services and 30% from Human Resources operations. Over the last 6-7 years, the US has produced 15 million private sector jobs, which is great for a company like this. This is now a little too rich, and a little too late to the cycle.
