From the inception of our watch list, we have used Yahoo Finance as the basis for the various industries that make up our watch list. In fact, if you follow this link, you will find all of the industries that make up our watch list.
Please note that with the exception of 27 companies, our watch list contains only publicly traded domestic companies, that trade on the NYSE, Nasdaq, or AMEX, and as a general rule, companies in the finance and banking industry are not included.
With that said, we recently completed a preliminary valuation worksheet on the 12 companies from our watch list that make up the Consumer Services Industry. Of those 12 companies we found four (4) that had recent prices attractive enough to warrant further research, but none that impressed us enough to start that research anytime soon.
Admittedly, we liked the businesses of several of the companies. Mac-Gray Corporation (NYSE: TUC) is in the laundry business. Actually it is a laundry facilities contractor, managing the laundry rooms of many multi-units housing facilities across America.
We also liked the business Standard Parking Corporation (Nasdaq: STAN) was in, parking facilities management. The company manages parking facilities in 330 cities across American and Canada.
One other company we found intriguing was Shutterfly, Inc. (Nasdaq: SFLY), the Internet-based personal publishing service that enables consumers to share, print, and preserve their memories through photos by using the company's technology, manufacturing, web design, and merchandising capabilities.
