Waste Management Had A Tough 2011

Posted by D4L | Sunday, January 01, 2012 | | 0 comments »

For investors, 2011 was not a stellar year to own Waste Management (NYSE: WM ) . On the bright side, the company has returned more cash to shareholders through dividends and share buybacks than it had at this point in 2010. However, the stock has lagged the none-too-impressive performance of the S&P 500.

The bottom line is that though Waste Management's stock didn't have a great year, and the company did face some economic headwinds, this remains a very stable, high-quality company. And Waste Management shareholders don't have to depend on Mr. Market for all of their returns because the company pays a nice dividend -- currently, the stock yields 4.4%.
