As CEO, Richard Kinder has a $1 salary although he's at the helm of three companies: Kinder Morgan, Kinder Morgan Energy Partners (NYSE: KMP  ) , and Kinder Morgan Management (NYSE: KMR  ) . But his compensation is through dividends and units of Kinder Morgan's limited partnerships.

4. @TheMotleyFool: It's boring. It's lucrative. And Buffett would love it. @TMFJMo found one stock that really cleans up: http://mot.ly/rTH2Ru

This company does a little bit of everything. And we mean everything -- from cleaning and sanitizing products to pest elimination. With a new acquisition, massive market-share advantage over its competitors, and 90% of its revenue recurring, it's no wonder that Fool Jason Moser is giving this stock a 6% position in his Rising Star portfolio.
