Heritage-Crystal Clean: Undervalued And Yet Still Outperforming Its Peers
Heritage-Crystal Clean is an under-the-radar company, but its stock performance is notable, beating the S&P 500 for the last five years. Cash flows from operations have more than doubled thanks in part to higher base oil prices and several quarters of record EBITDA.
