The Weiss Watchdog recently upgraded the rating on Public Storage (PSA) to A+ from A-. This means that the stock has an excellent track record for maximizing performance while minimizing risk, thus delivering the best possible combination of total return on investment and reduced volatility. It has made the most of the recent economic environment to maximize risk-adjusted returns compared to other stocks.
PSA was first highlighted on March 14, 2010. Since then, shares have jumped 47%, not including dividends.
