8. PPG Industries

Liability Adjusted Cash Flow Yield: 3.91%

Dividend Yield: 2.55%

Return on Invested Capital: 16.48%

PPG Industries ( PPG), 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.
