The idea of the family-owned business began in the manufacturing industry in the 1870s, making it one of the oldest forms of business organization.

The stock market’s rally over the past few months has been nothing short of remarkable, but there are still some great bargains to be found for patient long-term investors, especially in the real estate sector.
