Top 5 Penny Stocks To Watch Right Now

Costco (NASDAQ:COST) generally does not generate splashy headlines. Yes, there have been exceptions such as when the chain changed credit card providers and when it raised membership prices a little over a year ago.

But aside from that, the company generally just goes about its business. That’s not a bad thing — the warehouse club has shown steady increases in its most-important metrics — but it does not make for a great story.
