What's happening in the short term and the long term with this funeral company?

Service Corp. International (SCI) is the leading company in the American funeral and cemeteries business, or as they call it in the industry, “deathcare.”

One would think these might be boom times for Service Corp. and the industry given the Covid-19 pandemic. However, it is currently selling for less than its intrinsic value. That, along with an excellent earnings record, has put it on the GuruFocus Undervalued Predictable list.

That seeming contradiction is explained by looking at the other factors that come into play. Yes, the pandemic is generating more deaths, but there is more going on:

Their five-year EPS growth rates topped that of the S&P 500

Investors may want to have a look at stocks that have beaten the S&P 500 index (the benchmark for the U.S. market) in terms of a higher earnings per share (EPS) growth rate over the past few years, as these stocks are more likely to represent high-quality companies.

An awful haircut, but the company's stock garnered a Scissors-Up rating

A prospectus for a new haircutting chain, Supercuts (formerly CUTS, now RGS), arrived on Peter Lynch’s desk in late 1991. As one who always likes to do field research, Lynch promptly headed off to a Boston location and got himself a haircut. His family, friends and colleagues all panned the “shorn” look and recommended he not go there again.

Despite the loss of his sideburns, he told us in chapter ten of his 1993 book “Beating the Street” that this would be one of those relatively rare cases in which he wouldn't like the product but could still love the

3 case studies illustrate how to profit from Wall Street's confusion

In his book, “The Dhandho Investor: The Low-Risk Value Method to High Returns”, author and hedge fund manager Mohnish Pabrai (Trades, Portfolio) talked up businesses that offered low risk and high returns.
