Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) September 28, 2012
This month, Dan Ferris added Expeditors International of Washington to his portfolio of “World Dominator” stocks. Ferris is the author of Stansberry & Associates Investment Research Extreme Value newsletter. Ferris’ Extreme Value portfolio has realized a 10.04% annualized return since inception in 2002.
Ferris is extremely careful in researching companies before recommending them to his readers. He’s waited three years to add this unusual, ultra profitable business to his “World Dominator” portfolio.
Expeditors International of Washington is a non-asset-based logistics provider. “Logistics” is simply the science of efficiently shipping stuff from point A to point B. “Non-asset” means it doesn’t own the ships, planes, trains, and automobiles that carry the cargo it ships for customers.
“Expeditors is the biggest forwarder between the U.S. and Asia by freight volume,” wrote Ferris in the September issue of Extreme Value. “It's exactly the type of company we love to own in Extreme Value: It's a great company with a fantastic business model, trading at a dirt-cheap valuation that almost removes the risk from buying today.”
Ferris’ criteria for “World Dominators”: They are the No. 1 companies in their industries. They’re consistently profitable, year after year. They pay a lot of their abundant cash flow out to their shareholders. “World Dominators” are U.S. companies that do a large percentage of their business overseas and give investors an opportunity to participate in international markets through companies they know and understand.
Ferris writes in The Extreme Value Owner’s Manual:
“The best income strategy is to buy the safest stocks, the World Dominators. And they are perfect for long-term income investors because they pay dividends that go up every year. ExxonMobil has raised its dividend every year for nearly three decades. Wal-Mart has raised its dividend every year for more than three decades. And Procter & Gamble has raised its dividend every single year for nearly six decades.”
