Fastenal (NASDAQ:FAST) came right at the top of that list this weekend. The economy, according to the leading economic indicators is recovering and the stock market has been advancing nicely so what I needed was a real nuts and bolts investing idea and that exactly what FAST does.


The company is a wholesaler and retailer of all kinds of fasteners like nuts, bolts, screws in addition to janitorial supplies. If you are going to run a factory, machine shop or repair facility you will need most of the products FAST sells and distributes. They also provide products to the electrical and construction industries. If this economic party is going to get started companies are going to need to buy products through FAST to being production. This company will be in the middle of it all if this economic engine ever gets started.
