The best performing stock in the last five years is one you’ve probably never heard of, TAL Education Group. Its stock is up 2,288%, which is just amazing. The five year low for the stock is $1.30 a share and the five year high is $34.19 a share. And just what does TAL Education Group do? It must be some kind of new app or Internet company of some kind, in the education space, right? No, it’s a Chinese tutoring company.

For TAL’s stock to run up that much they must have tutored a lot of kids! It does look like it offers a lot of their services online though, which makes sense. So I guess you can call it a Dotcom company….Right now it has a market capitalization of over $16 billion, so it ain’t a small company. How much more can it grow? I don’t know, anything in China seems like it will be gigantic if it takes over the market. How much is the Chinese government involved in a stock?

TAL Education Group is a holding company for a group of companies engaged in provision of after-school tutoring programs for primary and secondary school students in the People’s Republic of China (the PRC).

It operates a Website, www.jzb.com, which is an online education platform in China. It offers personalized premium services under its Zhikang brand. It offers online courses through www.xueersi.com. Through www.xueersi.com, the Company offers online courses on mathematics, English, Chinese, physics, chemistry, biology and other subjects. It also offers select online courses through other Websites. The Company has over 10 call centers in Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin, Guangzhou and Shenzhen.

Netflix was a close second with a 2,112% increase and a stock five year low of $7.58 and a high of $191.50. Yes, a lot of this has to do with the Great Recession and the financial collapse, but still just amazing to look at these percentage returns. Again, it’s all about having patience though. How many people sold these stocks when they doubled and tripled in price? I’m sure a lot. More and more, it seems like the big returns are in the long term holdings of stocks, and five years isn’t even that long!
