One only has to shop at Costco to feel the energy of this company. No one wants to work for a bad company, and Costco has created a work atmosphere dedicated to paying workers well and appreciating their efforts.

There's still plenty of growth ahead for Costco. Amazingly, the company keeps finding sites for highly productive warehouses in the U.S. and Canada.

The recent membership fee increase provides additional earnings upside over the next year or so.
