Let’s take a look at a current example. The Zacks Funeral Services industry group is currently ranked in the top 2% out of approximately 250 industry groups. This group has outperformed the S&P 500 over the last year and its constituents are all witnessing positive earnings estimate revisions.Investing in funeral companies is nothing new as these companies have been around for a long time. Funeral companies are businesses and provide a service to those in need, just like companies in different industries provide a product or service to customers who require assistance.

And while investing in funeral companies may be controversial and lack excitement, there’s a reason they are outperforming the market. The industry group is displaying above-average historical sales growth, dividend increases, and earnings growth. Also note the favorable valuation characteristics for the Funeral Services industry:Zacks Investment Research

It’s not too difficult to understand why these companies likely still have room to run. Let’s take a look at a top individual stock contained within this leading group.Service Corporation International (SCI - Research Report)Service Corp. International is North America’s leading provider of deathcare products and services. Based in Houston, TX, SCI operates through their Funeral and Cemetery segments. SCI provides professional services related to funerals including the use of facilities and motor vehicles, cremation, memorialization, as well as catering services. The company markets its Dignity Memorial® brand which offers assurance of quality, value and exceptional customer service.

A Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) stock, SCI has been on a tear recently in terms of earnings beats – averaging a +43.8% surprise over the past four quarters. The company has exceeded earnings estimates in each of th last seven quarters. The funeral services provider most recently posted Q4 EPS of $1.17, a +17% surprise over consensus estimates. SCI stock has followed suit, advancing nearly 32% over the past year.Zacks Investment Research
Image Source: Zacks Investment ResearchAnalysts covering the firm have boosted their current-quarter estimates by +4% in the past 60 days. The Zacks Consensus Estimate now stands at $1.04. SCI is slated to report the Q1 results on May 2nd.

Anyway, I thought it of interest to casket aficionados here. The chart for SCI just posted an inverted head and shoulders, which is a pretty powerful bottoming pattern.

Thanks for posting this Bawl, but I'll give the advice NOT to buy any funeral stocks right now. Yeah every one of us in this business had our biggest year last year.The deaths were through the roof, BUT not this year. March was the first month in I'm not sure how many years that we actually lost money. Here's the deal:

When gas prices and inflation went up, so did cremations.Right now a lot of folks that might've died now have already died last year. The deaths are down, and cremations are WAAAAY up. There's also a major casket shortage now. The biggest casket company, Batesville has a terrible labor problem, and they are having major trouble getting interior cloth from China. The last mill in the USA that made that type of crepe and velvet closed a few years ago so all caskets have cloth from China.Batesville stopped selling to distributors in Febuary for 6 weeks. They are only selling to funeral homes now and we won't be able to get anymore from them until early May. That has overwhelmed the second largest casket company and we can't hardly get caskets from them now either. We are missing orders galore, missed 6 on friday because we didn't have the units. Missed one yesterday.The funeral homes are just telling families that they can't get the caskets, vaults or momuments and people are just opting for cremation in a lot of cases. The ones that are burying now are going low end units because the prices have increased so much. We've gone up an average of $200 per unit since last June. Steel went up and then other supplies went up then fuel went up...

It's so bad right now that we are seriously considering closing our statesboro warehouse and i've got my auction business ready to open now. a lot of folks that have been holding on to collectable items, are now selling them to pay bills...


SCI used to buy caskets from us... took forever to get paid..

SCI doesn't look like a particularly good buy to me. They do offer cremation though.

Peter Lynch discovered the joys of funeral investing about half a lifetime ago. He loved the unlovable companies.

Running low on killable people. My sister was admitted today in Atlanta for pneumonia. She's 70. You could put in a provisional bid.

Will be holding her in prayer.


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.

Decent people cannot fathom the amoral cruelty of the Biden regime.

Yes, I understand that. My wife was 2.5 years older than I am. (Unfortunately, I lost her in September.)

Sorry to hear. That's one of the toughest losses for sure.

My twins are 6 minutes apart. The girl, the older. She held that over him right until one day in the grade school carpool. She trotted out her signature line, and her brother responded "that means I'll live 6 minutes longer." The car went nuts. I had to pull over for a minute, I was laughing so hard.

Wouldn't it be weird if he does live 6 minutes longer?

Thank you, Mike.

Carolina, cherish every moment with your spouse. My wife went quite suddenly. You never know when it's the last moment you'll have.
