1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

On September 20, 2004, it completed its initial public offering. It operates 277 cemeteries in 27 states and Puerto Rico. It owns 259 of these cemeteries, and it operates the remaining 18 under management or operating agreements with the nonprofit cemetery corporations that own the cemeteries. The Company sells cemetery products and services both at the time of death, which it refers to as at-need and prior to the time of death, which it refers to as pre-need. Pre-need products and services are typically sold on an installment basis. The Company is organized into five distinct reportable segments which are classified as Cemetery Operations - Southeast, Cemetery Operations - Northeast, Cemetery Operations - West, Funeral Homes, and Corporate. The Cemetery Operations segments sells interment rights, caskets, burial vaults, cremation niches, markers and other cemetery related merchandise. Its Funeral Homes segment offers a range of funeral-related services such as family consultation, the removal of and preparation of remains and the use of funeral home facilities for visitation. Its Corporate segment includes various home office expenses, miscellaneous selling, cemetery and general administrative expenses that are not allocable to other operating segments, certain depreciation and amortization expenses and acquisition related costs. Its cemetery properties are located in Alabama, California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Washington and West Virginia.
