Funerals should be a very stable business. Tons of recurring revenue and good demographics. However, looking at the industry, this has not been the case. It’s a unionized business, dominated by mom and pop stores. Balance sheet on this one is a little rough. Doesn’t have the stability that he wants.

Funerals and cemeteries. Has done a really good job of cutting costs in the last year. Increased their dividend and have been buying back stocks. Near-term outlook is very good. Logical acquisition candidate.

Death care industry. The oldest company he has by about 3 years. Pays a dividend. Recent results were excellent and they keep raising the dividend yearly. Debt is high but normal in this industry. Would not buy it now although there is still a lot of upside.

2nd largest funeral and cemetery company in the US. The 2 certainties in life are death and taxes. Demographic changes in the next 15-20 years are going to be very positive. Possibility that their largest competitor may try to buy them again in the next 6-12 months.

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.

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.
