The funeral service company is slated to report second-quarter earnings on July 23. Analysts, on average, expect earnings of 17 cents a share on revenue of $602.97 million.

"Without a more obvious revenue catalyst, most investors view death care stocks as a proxy for the market, and SCI's shares have fallen 6.0% since May 11, consistent with a 5.0% drop in the S&P 500," Bank of America Merrill Lynch analysts wrote in a June 1 report. "However, we believe SCI has many of the same attributes as specialty retailers, a view supported by its continuing ability to drive higher revenues/event with more bundled services offerings that increasingly will include catering. We see earnings leverage improving dramatically as the death rate increases on favorable demographic drivers, and stronger pre-need sales production over the past several quarters in a still lackluster economy offers tangible evidence that the 65 and older group is now getting its affairs in order."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 2.1%
