CEO, Jarden

Jarden (JAH, Fortune 500) may not be the flashiest company featured on this list but for many investors, the stock has been a winner this year. The household goods maker, whose portfolio includes Sunbeam, Oster, Coleman, and Rawlings, has seen its stock gain well above 80% this year and has proven to be an extremely resilient company, with sales dipping only 1% in 2009 at the height of the recession. Now with former COO James Lillie completing a year in charge, the company is poised to continue its steady growth and maintain its low risk, high return investment reputation. --OA
