Focused on the funeral business in rural US. A slow, stable business. It won't shoot the lights out, but will continue to grow at a slow and steady pace. Great management alignment.

(A Top Pick Aug 19/05. Down 20%.) Their underlying business has performed superbly. About 15% ahead of their forcasts when they were IPO'd. Unfortunately there is a malaise in the market with some of the smaller names.

US funeral home business. Has a very stable cash flow from operations. Payout ratio is 80%. Good management. There is US$ exposure. The US$ is hedged, but hedges do roll off, but this is built into the price. A very good entry point for this one.

A funeral home operator across the US. Good core business. Had a solid 2nd quarter. Gearing up to make some acquisitions in the 2nd half of the year.

Has a solid story, In the funeral service business. The fifth largest in the US. Has come off significantly since its IPO, but thinks it's only malaise in the market. Have outperformed their guidance since their IPO. Earnings are up 15% above guidance and their payout ratio has fallen to 80% yet the yield is north of 10%.

US funeral home business. Great fundamentals. Very stable industry. Good margins. The thing to watch with this industry is the amount of leverage (debt), but they are comfortable with their leverage.
