Boring, reliable, and a dividend. I love it! With the recovering economy, I expect hiring to pick up, and that means ADP will tick up, too.

Long the 800 lb gorilla in the industry, ADP is the trusted brand for businesses to manage taxes as well as pay employees, manage their time and attendance, benefits, etc. Much of the premium this company receives is due to the apparent moat and the predictability of the business.

This predictability is - inmy opinion - illusory as the attractive economics of the industry draw more and more competition. This competition has two advantages that are unavoidable: new software companies can build their product based upon newer technology and being a smaller player makes it much easier to acheive impressive growth. As customers (and investors) realize this capital will flow to the smaller players and ADP will lose the premium it enjoys. You will never go broke being invested in ADP but I see it being an underperformer over the next year or so.

Dividend stock, very stable. Makes money off the float when employers submit their taxes to ADP and until ADP submits to the gov.

Historical steady growth for this technology company doesn't appear to be ending anytime soon. Nice dividends, too!
