I think opening a COST in Poland will be a step in the right direction.

COST earns more than 85% of its operating profit from membership fees, not product profits. And because of this, the company has deepened its moat as a defense against other membership clubs. With performance which far surpasses its principal competitors BJS and Sam's Club (subsidiary of WMT), future prospects appear positive. More penetration in overseas markets bodes well for future revenue and profit growth. If any weakness is apparent on the horizon, it is potential market saturation---COST already is in close proximity to more than 90% of the US population.

At 149.54 a share, I do not think that this stock will go much higher for me, but I salute WMT. Rock on...

Costco's higher margins on bulk products will continue to strengthen their bottom line as America comes out of this recession. COST's business play has been proven to work better than competitors such as BJ's and PriceClub. I view their high employee wages and benefits as a huge positive as high employee morale = higher production in my mind. Costco's average member has a family income of $100,000+. As the American economy picks up and more, higher paying jobs are added, I see a direct benefit for Costco

Why do I like Costco?
They have a sticky customer base which leads to sticky annual fees.
They value customers and refuse to raise prices too much.
They value the people they buy from and refuse to buy at too low of a price.
They value their employees and pay them a fair wage.
Some people argue that you can't make the world a better place while running a successful business, but Costco believes otherwise.

Try going to a Costco on a weekend afternoon. The only way I see Costco's growth slowing are the store's not being able to cram more people in there.

This is a champion retailer. It would be utterly foolish to bet against them. Yet I just did on CAPS. The growth is there but not amazing to warrant a 29-30 PE. I think any sign of the slightest slowdown in growth or stock market pullback would bring the valuation down to atleast 25, and that would mean, I expect them to underperform in 2015.

Having said that, if the stock does not pullback over the next year, I would get nervous and will have to salvage the pick for a slight loss in caps points.

In my estimate, over the last 2 years, stock traded in a Trailing Adj PE range of 25-30, and I would like to exit out of this position at a PE of 27.

Costco is a one-stop shop. It has so many quality items being sold in bulk at a discount, it makes it very attractive for people to go there and shop for everything from food to electronics to clothes. One can also get cheaper gasoline there and get his or her prescription filled while they shop. Paid memberships are also growing each year.

Looking at the historical trajectory, and the moves they are making to partner with AliBaba. I'm confident they will keep performing over the next 5 years

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.

Trying something new: picking companies with high customer satisfaction rankings as recorded by various polls/reports.
