A secure business, garbage collection agencies, but all these garbage sector stocks trade at a high 30x PE. RSG has the best credit rating of the group at BBB.

When you have oligopolies and duopolies, you tend to get better pricing, as there's no option for where to go. Second-largest in NA. Bill Gates' holding company, Cascades, owns 35% of this name. Bit expensive, forward PE in low 20s. Degree of resilience built-in. 50% of pricing is linked to inflation, while the remaining 50% open market is where the pickup comes from.


RSG vs. WCN Waste management, one of the largest in the US. Likes the sector. Tailwinds from economic growth, a sticky business, gets pricing power each year. Even though more expensive, he likes WCN the best, as it has a better track record, better margins and growth, and could better drive M&A synergies given their best in class practices and margin profiles. Nothing wrong with RSG, but WCN is the best in class name for the next 5 years.

A very good company, thriving during periods of residential construction, which is now.

Have grown dividends 8.5% per year and have hundreds of landfill sites and hundreds of waste collection areas in 41 states.


When you drill into GDP data, private sector GDP was above 3% while public sector DGP was below.

2nd largest waste management. Highest EBITDA in the company's history at 31%. Paying down debt. Expects a share buyback or dividend increase later this year.
(Top Pick Jan 16/09, Up 8%) Still likes it. Paying down debt. Can either buy back shares at end of year or increase dividend.
Garbage. Recently merged with Allied Waste to become the 2nd largest player in the US. Own 25% of the landfill. Debt to EBITDA will be about 2.9 times. Have a plan to pay down the debt, not buy back shares and will get about $70 million in synergies on their merger. Cheap at 6X cash flow.
