The Most Successful Company

I wonder if any of you will guess who this company is?

One dollar invested in this company in 1968 was worth $US6638 last Friday (including dividends). That’s an annual return of 20.6% per year for nearly half a century. No other company comes close to matching its long-term results, according to Wharton professor Jeremy Siegel.

The same dollar invested in the S&P 500 over the same period would be worth $US87, or 98% less.
