Baby Boomers are aging, and in the coming years many will visiting the hospital and/or dying, using products that HRC makes.

HRC is a good buy in a growth industry. With a 22.90 P/E ratio, HRC may not fit the mold of a traditional value stock, but it’s still undervalued, at least when you compare it to an industry P/E of over 30.

And HRC is conservatively run. With a quick ratio of 1.80 and a current ratio of 2.50, it's very liquid, and with a .23 debt to equity ratio and .15 long term debt to equity ratio, it carries little debt.

This company appears to offer a solid opportunity as of today (April 2009).
The company is trading below reported book value and is paying high dividends. Additionally the company operates outside of the FIRE (financial insurance real estate) sector of the economy, so chances are, what you see is what you get. I've personally screened this company to ensure it did not expand excessively during the hot years (2004-2008).
This company was found today via google screener with the following criteria:
atleast 100m market cap or more
has fallen more than 45% past 1yr
dividend payers @3% or more
atleast 25% institutionally held
price to book less than 1
have total debt/assets less than 100%
have total debt/equity less than 100%
personally screened to make sure the companies were not FIRE industries (financial/insurance/real estate), oil commodity related, industrial metal commodities related, sea shipping related
personally verified limitation on expansion during boom years (not excessive BS growth from '04-'08)

the resulting dividend companies to buy are:
AM, BRC, CBS, CBT, CDI, CSS, GLT, HRC, KELYA, LYTS, MEI, MWV, SXI, TKR, UVV

conversely I will be looking to short opportunities with opposite criteria.

This will be the primary focus of this profile, to seek & obtain alpha from long/short dividend opportunities across various industries.

The funeral industry will be a "growth" industry in the coming years thanks to the boomers. These guys know how to manage their business.

Relatively new management will find additional areas to ratchet down to contribute to both sales growth and cost control.
