A Lynch favored industry...steady profit increases and a top and bottom line topper in most recent earnings release. A consistent dividend too, both in years paid (9) and increases.

SCI is in a bussiness that will not go away. They bury the dead. The obvious thinking is with the babyhas a good boomers getting older they are Return on Equity of 12%. The Debt is a little high, and I need to find out why. They have had a small profit increass over the last three years.

The baby boomers are going to boom a market segment one last time. This one is particularly nice because they are in so many countries, and seem to be strong among their competitors.

With a bulk of the market share in a guaranteed market and a decent dividend, there are not many bad aspects to this stock. This will not be a twobagger for years, but will have solid performance.

Diversified all across the country and Canada. Is a leader in death services. Don't like to profit from other peoples misery, but the baby boomers will start using these services at a greater rate.

The only thing you can't escape is death. Everyone will need some sort of death service some day. Buy Buy Buy.

More and more baby boomers are going to be customers of these dudes. Let's face it, people getting old and dying is a growth industry. Dad, don't worry about putting my in the will, I can make money from you kicking it in other ways.

I still feel strongly that the "funeral" industry is a long-hold stock opportunity.

Great business model huge service moat. Mangement needs to get a clue. Maybe someone else can come in and help the true value be realized! Where is Carl Icahn?...

This company is in one of the most recession proof industries there is right now, but that still doesn't make me want to invest in this stock in particular.

SCI revenue has been declining the last 3-4 quarters, not a good sign. People are looking for any small sign to punish a company, decreasing revenues is just that. We are near a 52 week low, so there might be a bounce, especially if the market bounces too; however, this will fall eventually.

Down we go.

We all will face two events in the civilized world; deaths and taxes. SCI is a mortuary business. It is recession proof and on its way back up. Several years ago it was a high growth businees that grew faser than it was ready to. International expansion including Europe and other international deals increased debt and different cultures trest death differnt. SCI had to exit a number of business from the $40 range only a couple of years earlier. Income and profits have on a steady rise over the last three or four years,
