3-year average
Revenue Growth: 43%
Profit Growth: 74%
Total Return: 37%

What’s in a name? Originally named for its change-counting machines, 85% of Coinstar’s revenue now comes from its Redbox DVD-rental kiosks. Even as consumers switch to video-streaming services like Netflix, the video-rental business is still worth more than $5 billion -- of which Coinstar boasts a 42% market share. The company has been rolling out additional self-service kiosks (“automated retail solutions” in Coinstar-speak) all over the country as struggling video-rental stores have closed. Revenue rose by 39% and 29% in 2010 and 2011, respectively, primarily due to new kiosk installations and existing kiosk sales growth in the Redbox segment. -- N.S.
