••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

It operates two types of businesses: Funeral Home Operations and Cemetery Operation. At December 31, 2013, it operated 161 funeral homes in 26 states. The Companys funeral homes offer a complete range of services to meet a familys death care needs, including consultation, the removal and preparation of remains, the sale of caskets and related funeral merchandise, the use of funeral home facilities for visitation and services and transportation services. Most of its funeral homes have a non-denominational chapel on the premises, which permits family visitation and services to take place at one location and thereby reduces transportation costs and inconvenience to the family.

The Companys operations are located in principally suburban and rural markets in the United States, where it primarily competes with smaller, independent operators and companies that market products and related merchandise over the Internet and non-traditional casket stores in certain markets.
