My Foolish take
I am excited about the merger between Service Corporation International (NYSE:SCI) and Stewart Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ:STEI), as the combined company will have substantial economies of scale in a highly fragmented funeral and cemetery market. With the expected annual cost savings and the potential synergies, there is a lot of upside potential for the combined company.
