This may seem twisted, but I have been researching public companies in the funeral business. After my dad died last year, I realized that these funeral homes make a ton of money. Might be investment possibilities.

My favorites are:
MATW - Matthews International
They make the bronze markers that you see in cemetaries and other places.
HB - Hillenbrand Industries
Healthcare and funeral services.

Anyone else care to discuss these "death" stocks?
