Wrigley Company (WWY) is another example of an old established company producing very good returns.   $5,000 invested in Wrigley Company at the beginning of 1985 would have been worth over $480,000 after the cash buyout of Wrigley's stock.  On October 6, 2008, Mars, Inc. completed its buyout of Wrigley's for $80.00 per share cash.  Not too bad of a return for selling a few packs of chewing gum.
