Waste Management

Waste Management WMSector: Industrials
YTD Performance: +21%

When it comes to America the beautiful, credit home-grown Waste Management (WM) for helping keep it that way.

Sure, the Houston-based company brands itself as “the largest environmental solutions provider in North America,” but in reality, its Canadian locations are more of a side show.

Instead, Waste Management’s network of recycling facilities, transfer stations and landfills — the largest network in the industry, mind you — got more than 94% of its operating revenue here in the U.S. of A. last year.

And WM does more than just pick up your trash. It also is rewarding investors with 21% year-to-date appreciation and an annual 3.6% dividend yield on current prices.
