They are a consistent grower. They grew moderately through the recession. I guess no one wants to have bugs crawling on them at night.

I like this stock a lot. If you invest in Rollins, I think you could see some pretty good growth over the next few years. It is a great stock for a long term investment.

I keep thinking of all the brand new houses sitting empty being infested with any number of vermin. Once houses begin to sell again, there will be a great need for extermination of said vermin.

And then there are the great numbers:
Insider ownership: 58.9%
Qtrly Earnings Growth (yoy): 8.20% (modest but positive)
Decent dividend

I like this company at this price for the long haul.

Rollins main form of income and profit is derived from the Pest Control industry, mainly Orkin Pest Control. Their complimentary income is in advertising and landscaping. Management always has their eyes on the future, treat their employees very well, and focus on being the best, not the biggest.

This is an interesting stock. They are an insect, rodent and pest control corp. which provides services to homes and businesses (I know a few hotels who could stand to have a little extermination). They have a solid financial standing with low (3.6%) revenue growth, but high (17%) earnings growth. Always good to see that. Also, they have a mere 2 million dollars of debt, and 54 million in cash (not as much as I'd like to see in a 1 billion mkt cap company, but enough). And since they've been around since 1901, I'm casting my vote in favor of this solid company.
