overpaying for schawk
Solid, high-margin business. Diversifying from "memorialization" funeral products into European printing/packaging services. Share price has taken a beating lately.
I'm in Funeral Business and this is the only supplier we use for our markers, vases and other products. Great service.
3 to 5 star stock in one year.
This will sound callus I know but... with the aging of the population here in the states this is truly a growth industry... the boomers will be retiring and passing on...as this occurs the demand for this type of business will increase more than it already has... this is simply a logistical pick.. More people will be dying in the next few years..a little morbid but... it's the facts...
