Trust Across America (TAA), which I co-founded with my wife Barbara in 2009, has been tracking the performance of America’s most trustworthy public companies, and the results are nothing short of staggering. These companies have produced an 82.9% return (green line) vs. the S&P’s 42.2% (blue line) since August 2012. These results are based upon a monthly re-balanced list of selected companies rather than an actual portfolio.

Every week, I will highlight another outstanding company that leads with trust as defined by our FACTS® Framework. Companies do not know they are being evaluated, nor do they participate in the analysis via surveys or interviews.
This week we focus on Hormel Foods (HRL) . who received the distinction of being ranked #2 on TAA’s Most Trustworthy Public Company 2013.
We’re not the only ones who believe this company leads with trust. Their accolades and awards can be accessed here including “Responsible CEO of the Year” and “Best Companies for Leaders.”
We hope you have enjoyed this second Just the FACTS® post. Come back next week as we profile another trustworthy company. Trust works!
