It Pays to Be America's Most-Hated Companies

It's encouraging to know that the most-hated companies in the country are making the most money. Wait. What?

The potential buyout offer for Time Warner Cable (TWC) serves as a reminder that the stock is up 39 percent this year through Dec. 13 and has surged 450 percent over the past five years. This is why companies don’t really care if you hate them. The companies you hate are making plenty of money. In fact, the scorned tend to perform better than the companies you like.
