BUY on WEAKNESS
A long-term unfortunate secular play. Hold onto it. If it pulls back, buy more. Trades at a cheap 14x earnings.

HOLD

This funeral company is in a fragmented sector, yet there is good growth opportunity given current demographics. The stock is up 19% over the year, so he feels the stock needs to grow into this current valuation and it won’t happen overnight.

BUY

He likes the industry because it is a good, predictable business. Demographics are leading to increases in volumes. It pays a dividend. There is a secular trend in the industry.

PAST TOP PICK

(A Top Pick Aug 17/16. Up 34.4%.) A very boring, steady business that is probably going to improve over time. A really well run business and he likes management. Felt it became fully priced, and would look for a better entry price.

other services
TOP PICK

A pretty boring, steady business. An industry he has followed and been invested in for a long time. This is a much higher quality company than StoneMor (STON-N). They operate both funeral homes and cemeteries. The largest player and a consolidator in a fragmented industry, and have made a number of acquisitions which have been very accretive for them. Thinks they will continue to consolidate. Demographics are favourable. There are fairly high barriers to entry for competition.

COMMENT

The leading consolidator in the funeral industry. Excellent management. A big, diversified business. Have been acquiring other companies in the US.

other services
PAST TOP PICK

(A Top Pick Feb 21/14. Up 39.64%.) No longer as cheap as it used to be and is trading at a premium valuation. People like the stability of the funeral/Cemetery business. The largest in North America and has been a really aggressive consolidator.

other services
TOP PICK

Largest funeral home in North America. A sector where there has been a lot of consolidation. Likes the sector. Excellent management team that were very successfully at buying companies. You will see a lot of benefit over the next year or two from free cash flow.

other services
BUY

Funeral service company. He had a position but they were taken out. STEI.O took them out and he holds his position in this. There were synergies in combining the two businesses. They will be accretive to earnings per share.

other services
COMMENT
One of the largest cemetery and funeral home operators in North America. Very stable business. Won't grow at dramatic rates. Long-term, a great business to be in. Prefers Arbor (ABO.B-T), which has a nice dividend.
other services
BUY
Both Service Corp (SCI-N) and Stewart Enterprises (STEI-N) are dominant leaders in the funeral industry. Quite a bit of debt. Could have chosen either of these as Top Picks.
other services
COMMENT
He owns both Stewart Enterprises (STEI-Q) and Service Enterprises (SCI-N). They're both in the funeral sector. Service has hit his target, but he has not sold yet to see if it will run further. Pretty much recession proof. Think they both have a ways to run.
other services
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick June 7/05. Up 22%.) Now has it is a hold. Huge turnaround. Major problem was a huge debt load through acquisitions. Cash flow positive last quarter. Buying back shares.
other services
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick June 7. Up 14.2%.) Was on their BUY list, but have shifted it to their HOLD list. Have been losing money. Took a lot of legal fees because of problems in Florida. Have had other write-offs they've had to deal with. Revenues have been going up. Have pared their huge debt load down about 50%. Now have a dividend.
other services
TOP PICK
Bought it at around $4.81. Has moved up gradually over time. Pared their huge debt back by about 33%. Do about $1.8 billion in sales. Have started to have a dividend. In the last quarter they had a loss of almost $190 million, but most of that was because of accounting adjustments. Otherwise they would have made about $30 million.
