Return on Invested Capital: 16.48%PPG Industries (PPG - Get Report), like United Technologies (UTX), is a diverse company that creates products you've probably used without realizing. Originally known as the Pittsburgh Plate Glass Co., today PPG provides a wide array of glass, coating and optical products, including polarized lenses for sunglasses, windshields for airplanes and even transparent armor for military vehicles. Fundamentally, PPG has been a consistent performer, delivering solid cash flows throughout the worst of the financial crisis. But the stock has been volatile. It collapsed to around $30 per share in 2009, then, rocketing toward $100. Alas, if you care to guess where in that price range PPG management spent the most money repurchasing shares, you'll likely be as disappointed as this author.
