3M Tries to Turn on Its Growth Engine

It's been a while since 3M (NYSE: MMM  ) wowed us with a new product. But new CEO Inge Thulin has put the focus back on R&D and is hoping to pick up the pace of organic growth. The Motley Fool's Erin Miller sat down with Fool.com contributor Travis Hoium to see what this means for the stock.

With over 50,000 products, 3M plays a role in making everything from computers to power cables. A long history of invention and innovation has driven the company to its wide reach, but a focus on operational efficiency may be hurting the creative culture that once created Scotch Tape and the Post-It Note. A new leader has taken over and vows to return innovation to the forefront. Does this mean the stock will become more than a dividend and return to its former glory as a growth stock once again? Find out whether 3M has what it takes to pull it off in The Motley Fool's comprehensive new research report on the company. Simply click here now to claim your copy today.
