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.

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.
