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.

All my friends with kids swear by this place. I like that it appears they pay their employees well and seen to care about their well-being. That means a lot to me on an ethical level, but I actually believe it pays off in customer satisfaction, loyalty, and purchasing. I'm certain;y more likely to buy more a t a store where the employees are happy. Recently I nearly walked out of a store because the employees were clearly so unhappy with their jobs. But I digress… COST stores offer big dissents on household stuff. Plus you get to stock up which saves your precious time. It's amazing how much teenagers eat. If I had teens, I would give COST a big Thank-You hug.

Good service and quality merchandise at low price (but large quantity) will see it continues to grow.

Management will propel this company to success. Costco has the ability to serve billions of people, and for that reason, it will outperform the market. Hold for 5+ years.
