In this segment of Investor Beat, Chris Hill and Motley Fool analyst Mike Olsen tap into why Core Laboratories is a stock to watch, especially since the core and fluid analysis company offers 50% returns on capital. 

Core Labs is down after recently cutting guidance because of delays in projects and slowed activity in some shales, yet Mike finds it worth watching, as he says it has developed deep data stores and has been in the business for so long that it has no direct competition.
