This company works in the pharmaceutical industry and is a name in the portfolios of many. These types of companies operate in a way that they put large sums of money into research and development and hit success once their product is approved by the government. On the other side, if they’re product is not approved; they have put all this money into the products to not be able to sell it. Having this sector in your portfolio can offer higher returns, but you’re risk is also increased.

Johnson Controls is a company that specializes in HVAC and other building construction areas. Being in the industry certainly has its up and downs, but if it is well managed, it can certainly look past the slower times. As a potential investor, these types of companies can provide great returns, especially after the world financial crisis that happened in 2008. Now that we are some time past that, the large moves have been missed, but that does not mean that this company is going to stop providing steady returns for their investors.

The food industry is certainly one of the toughest industries to survive in as the competition is so fierce, but this company has managed to hold on strong.

Expedia is the company responsible for the services of Travelocity, Trivago, and many others that are used on a regular basis. These services that this company offers are the services of time management. Being able to find what you need all in one place allows people to focus on other aspects of their life. By organizing everything into one platform, it allows the user to stay at that one site, which increases the chances of a sale. This type of company does well when people are spending, but issues arise when there is a slight downturn in the overall market.
