Inside Wall Street: Bet You Never Heard of MWI Veterinary Supply

The veterinary supply industry may seem ho-hum -- after all, what's so exciting about companies that provide animal health products? But it's actually an upbeat growth sector, even though it's practically ignored by investors. While it's a relative pip-squeak compared to other industries, this group serves the needs of some 58,000 U.S. veterinarians. The industry generates sales of about $8 billion. Tiny, yes, but certainly growing.
