This stock has basically under-performed the benchmark S&P in the last 3 years as a result of flat revenue growth. One of the reasons is that RSG is really dependent on household growth since it deals with domestic non-hazardous waste.As the number of households declined due to unemployment and lack of opportunities for new graduates, so have RSG's revenues. Look for the stock to rebound as housing recovers in the next 5-10 years but I am red-thumbing in the near to medium term.
