What's the Best Performing Stock Since the 1987 Market Crash?

Since the stock market crash of 1987, what company's stock has performed the best? Apple? Nope. Microsoft? Wrong again. Wal-Mart? Not even close.

Many investors would be surprised to learn that the best performing stock since '87, with a return of 38,565 percent, not including dividends, is Fastenal (FAST), according to Bloomberg BusinessWeek.

Fastenal is just one of the great performing companies followed by the Investor Advisory Service. The company is a distributor of tools and hardware, and has grown from a single small-town location in Winona, MN to more than 2,500 locations in the U.S. and around the world.

Apr. 5, 2012: Retail Investors Conferences; Dividend Analysis for the Growth Stock Investor
The growth stock investing approach taught by BetterInvesting and used in the Toolkit 6 software program focuses on capital appreciation and low P/E valuations as the keys to successful stock investing.
