It means that growth will be more uneven than it has been in the past.

That's a pretty impressive record. But it's a bit unusual to see a paint company in a list of top growth stocks. Usually, it's some cloud storage firm or a breakout online retailer.However, SHW, by its size and reputation, has not only endured but it has positioned itself on top of the coatings heap.

With a $300 billion market cap, the only Big Oil that's bigger is Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM). It's what is called an integrated energy company because it has operations from the fields to the pipelines to the refineries to the distribution.As with all energy firms, when times are bad, the more exposure you have to the entire production and distribution process, the tougher things get. But at the size the big oils are, they have the money to wait out the bad patches.And that's just what RDS.A has done. Now it's time to cash in. What's more, RDS.A is still delivering a mouth-watering 7.4% dividend, but that may wane as the stock price starts rising.
