Batesville, the company that made Michael Jackson Golden Casket

Batesville, the company that made Michael Jackson Golden Casket lost over 29 million in revenue this year compared to last

Batesville Casket(Hillenbrand)(HI) 4th quarter results are in and according to the Business Courier of Cincininati. “Hillenbrand sees lower sales in 4Q, stock drops

Although profits are up for the year, the stock fell Tuesday on 4th quarter announcement. This is bad news for the funeral industry.It is the Business Courier’s Judgement that  Investors are losing faith in Hillenbrand. The company is also the maker of The Michael Jackson Golden Casket. It is the authors opinion that Batesville has shown dismal numbers all year.

Snippet from the Business Courier of Cincininati.

For fiscal 2009, Hillenbrand posted net income of $102.3 million, or $1.66 per share, versus $93.2 million, or $1.49 per share in fiscal 2008. Revenues declined to $649.1 million from $678.1 million.

IT IS MY OPINION THAT A 29 million dollar decline from the World’s Largest Casket Maker is a sure indication of traditional funeral industry decline and the rise of cremation.
