Their business model is just unbeatable...unless other merchants decide to increase workers' pay and benefits, that is. Their employees, customers, and stockholders are all happy. The company is profitable and dependable. What more does anyone need?

Costco has a solid management team which has shown the ability to increase same store sales, maintain the loyalty of their staff and grow the number of stores to create increasing share holder value. So long as this team is in place Costco will be both a very highly rated place to shop and a place to place shareholder bets as well.

Loyal customer base, good value. Will do well if econony goes up or down. If economy rebounds, then more consumers will buy products at Costco. If the economy sours, more people will shop at Costco for the volume discounts and sales.

Costco stock isn't especially cheap, but it's still a good bet for long-term investors. The company's prices are so low that it's one of the few Amazon-proof retailers out there. Investors can expect steady high single-digit revenue growth, a modest dividend, and stable profit margins. In the long run, there's actually a chance that Costco could widen its profit margin (leading to faster EPS growth) thanks to lower competition in international markets.

Costco treats their employees relatively well and is focused on sustainability. In the long run, this gives them room to sell out and start abusing employees/polluting. It's good to have options. Plus their last earnings were "disappointing" so the somewhat inflated price has relaxed a bit.

Dividends500 tracks the 200 strongest dividends in the S&P 500. To qualify as a strong dividend, the company must meet two simple requirements:

- A payout ratio below 50%
- An increasing dividend from the prior year

Because there are more than 200 dividend paying companies in the S&P 500 that meet these requirements, the qualifying companies with the largest dividend yields were chosen.

Dividends500 intends to test this FactSet article, which highlights these strong dividend paying companies and their outperformance versus the S&P 500 as a whole (Page 12).

Have you been to a Costco? The company absolutely hits it out of the park. Unlike other retailers their employees actually enjoy working there. Go to a Costco and then go to a Sam's Club. Costco has better products, prices, and employees.

Wonderful business model will allow it to fill Walmart's place as top grocer, when Walmart inevitably topples.
