|I am out today. Wasn't keen on the results. A long time waiting, a short time holding. At least it was a profitable wait, albeit very small :)|

|Hi sold half of my holdings in these yesterday, as they haven't risen a lot over the last few days, quite timely for a change, but quite a bounce today. They still have lots of potential I believe, they have served me well over the years|
|Now out too as there is better potential elsewhere. Managed to achieve break even position which is a relief.
|Agree entirely with comments above. Have watched it soar higher and regretted I did not hold shares. But these figures are mondain and look at the debt!
I wonder if Naked Trader has sold,this was one of his favourite shares.
I can see it it retreating a lot further.
|This needs to fall somewhat before many will invest. Competition building plus deaths expected to fall will mean more competing for less work.
On the plus side the crematoriums are doing well which isn't something joe bloggs can just set up.
Regulations should be in place as I'm surprised how easy entry is.|
|think the valuation was fair when you could rely on the steady growth. but ex growth and small dividend? and increased competition nibbling away at margins. out this morning|
|All the recent gains have evaporated - not surprising really.
Still in profit and may move to pastures new later today.
|looks like an insane valuation for this
especially when also considering the liabilities|
|Plus competition so expecting an share price falback this am.
|Mmm, EPS flat, underlying only slightly better and yet forward P/E 22?
They keep talking about deaths last couple of years being above normal and competition increasing.
They seem very unsure to me, seem to be setting themselves up for a possible profit warning IMHO.|
|Here's hoping the anticipation isn't misplaced.
|Melody, I assume the big rise is in anticipation of Wednesday's results.|
|I've been watching these from 750p hoping for a cheap entry point, no such opportunity!|
|Big Fella = me too. I was in at 2375p around the same time as you. I was previously invested in DTY when the SPO was 300 -400p some years ago.....but sadly sold out. Amazing the sort of returns you can achieve from buy and hold as long as you select the right companies and ride minor peaks and troughs,.
So why the big rise yesterday - are people switching out of growth into more defensive stocks?|
|If they pushed the div up a bit could go to 35 quid.|
|Yes, one of his few successes. My only failing with this share is that I never reinvested the capital distributions it pays out every few years into adding to my holding.|
|This is the share that has been on my watchlist the longest without ever investing. Mr Hangman pointed me in their direction in banter in the old LOQ days. Very pleased I joined the party 9 years late at the back end of January. I suspect they will now remain as a core part of my ISA for years to come.|

|Some life here at last - was getting ready to call the undertakers|
|Nice rise this am.
|This company makes a clear 33P on each pound of turnover, clearly they are good at what they do OR play on the fact that one deals with them at the very time your not in a position to shop around. Even if you could shop around no one in the sector is working on price. Not like a supermarket.
The overall cost has gone through the roof over the last 20 years across the board.
As have profits here.
I would be very worried the fat margins don't get smashed by the government or an easy jet style service.
That might not happen in my lifetime though.|
This is also based on last year which had a hell of a lot of people passing away.
Funerals are so expensive now, I'm amazed the government doesn't try to cap them, people just cant afford to die.|
|Always fully valued here! I've been waiting years for an entry point.|
|Seems fully valued here at 23x, anyone think theres room for an increase.|
