Want to invest in Colorado?

If so, there are plenty of publicly traded Colorado companies.

But which are the ones that are most likely to offer you a return on your money?

To find out, Smart Asset looked at Colorado-based stocks over approximately a five-year period, from January 2010 through March 2015, as judged by three major factors: stock price, dividends paid and volatility. And the following ten Colorado companies scored highest.

Not all of the top ten are well-known. Indeed, with the exception of two familiar restaurant chains, a firm specializing in dialysis services and a certain satellite-cable provider, many of them won't be familiar to the average person. But they may be worth mentioning to your broker.
