IRM

Iron Mountain stores paperwork and data for 95% of the Fortune 1000 companies. If information is the lifeblood of commerce, then IRM is essential to the continued survival of Global Business. The company’s legacy business (paper records storage) provides steady and recurring revenue, while the company’s growth businesses (digital storage and services) create the growth that investors need for the 21st century. Structured as a REIT, Iron Mountain constantly puts that growing cash flow right back into investors’ pockets.

NVO

Novo Nordisk is one of the world’s premier providers of novel medicines for diabetic&obese patients. With diabetes expected to afflict 750 million people by 2045, Novo is a pure growth play. Lately, the company has launched a new product, Wegovy, that is the first medicine scientifically proven highly efficacious against obesity. This should open a brand new market for Novo, with the potential to eventually sell the medicine to billions of people world wide. Although Novo’s dividend is modest today, the company’s potential for explosive growth could mean a cash flow bonanza for shareholders.
