+ Watch HI
on My Watchlist
Their German buy will boost the share
I've consistently found a winning combination in companies in a "boring" business that are making accretive acquisitions and that are executing on their growth plan ... Hillenbrand fits the mold and has been a winner so far, although I'm just getting around to writing pitches for most of my picks from a year or two ago. Even so, I still see more upside for HI.
real money: mom and kids
Let's face it, people die...EVERYDAY and someone has to take care of the dirty work, Hillenbrand has sort of a death dealers moat and I love them going forward in the future
Building the Material Handling side of their business will grow this company. Now is the ideal time to invest while the stock is cheap. This is a no miss situation
Should start seeing the effect of their recent acquistions
It's hard to argue Hillenbrand, Inc. won't be much busier 10 years from now. What do I say when I find a company that dominates its industry, has a sound balance sheet, a current P/E of 11.28, and a 4.1% dividend? Yes please.
I am reading Peter Lynch's book "One up on One Wall Street" so I figured I should pick a company that does something disagreeable. It has 5 stars and it makes coffins.
OK, so it's not exactly a stock to die for, but the 4% yield and decent return forecast (the price has sagged of late) looks pretty good at a sales growth forecast of 8%. Maintaining or improving profitability could bolster returns and the P/E is unexciting. All things considered, sentiment is bullish and the stock is nearly potentially oversold levels. Quality is excellent. We might not be fond of cemeteries, but apparently President Lincoln did a whole lot more than we ever suspected? Cryptic, indeed.
Management appears to doing the right things. Current value combined with dividend % and superb FCF/Rev ratio. Almost seems to good to be true for a small growth company. The company is like a mini Berkshire of 45 years ago. Hopefully management can exponentially increase the intrinsic value of this company like Buffet did for Berkshire owners. The BV has increased by an average of 23% per since 2007.
People are dying to get in this stock! OK, that was a bad joke, but looking at the demographics of death, this company has to continue to grow.
Play on one of the few certainties of life, stable business model, solid margins and returns on capital, attractive dividend yield. A lot to like here.
Hillenbrand is in an often overlooked area of the "diversified services" sector of the market. How on earth do you categorize a "death" stock besides categorizing it as a death stock? Currently at %3.8 dividend yield. Hillenbrand largely dominates the casket market. However, Costco and even Walmart do pose a threat Hillenbrand, especially if we are returning to a sideways market. For the medium term., however, death rates will only rise and it would be unwise not to have your foot in at least one reliable company in the "death services" area
This stock is winning like charlie sean and it looks like (unlike charlie) that it is not going to stop. I think you could make a moderate profit within 25% just within the year.
Dead people. Can't live with em, can't live without em.
Demand is always there in the funeral business.
(MS) consumer discretionary pick that is not really discretionary. good dividend.
both a dying business and super aquisition of K-tron
Some things are immune to economic fluctuations, caskets may be one category.
