In a normal "market" CSV should act a bit like the S&P. But with a huge aging population comes more business.

As baby boomers get older and eventually pass, CSV has the infrastructure setup to take advantage of this "boom" in business.

Everybody dies, even pay a dividend, wish they would pay down some debt.

This is one of my STARZ.
Here is the thought process on this STAR:
a) Divided rate over Zero
b) 3 Year Beta between -5 & +3
c) 15% + Insider ownership
d) No greater than -50% Growth rate for the last 3 years (tought= last couple of years so goo that insiders are still owning the stocks)
e) Current CAPS rating between 3 Stars & 5 Stars
Open to all Industries and Sectors screened this down to just 250 stocks. I like round numbers. 12 of them I already own through other screening tools. I tend to be somewhat conservative but looking for 3 things at this point in my investing:
1. Stability & Strength
2. Yield and Modest Growth
3. Strong Position within a sector regardless of whether the entire sector is strong or not. Each sector has to perform to some degree for the whole world economy to function. I am looking for 5 or more years down the road, ROI, and Growth.
Not looking for rockets, just stars. This is a Star!!

Looks undervalued.
Its a funeral service, I mean as baby boomers get older the rate of people dying is only going to increase.

People will continue to die at a more or less predictable, regular rate. Somebody's gotta be there to take care of them when they do. This company provides the services, HRC provides the equipment. You can't lose - unless you're already dead.

I like the below $10 price and its potential for a good return.

How can you be happy to see a stock price rise because someone just died?? Oh my, this poor world. Bury me in the back yard so someone can't make a Cadillac payment!

Another of my "death fund" stock picks -- the Boomers will commence to croak in large numbers pretty soon and they'll want to be planted. CSV et al are in the right place to make money by providing the necessary "final services." What's not to like? Death is a growth industry...
