E Daily Stock Analysis: Matthews International (MATW)

The new portfolio of stocks I started building September 8, at a one stock per week pace for the next year, is named Vista. I will select its third stock this coming weekend. Vista is the sixth portfolio I've built (at a one dividend dog per-week pace) since 2014. Six portfolios = VI for Vista!

Vista is planned to Look Ahead for Outstanding, Proven, Dividend Winners. (Like Aristocrats)

Today we'll review the fourth of five industrials sector stock candidates vying to be that third selection in the Vista portfolio.

My subject today is a small cap industrial conglomerate named, Matthews International Corp. Its trading ticker symbol is MATW. This is my first ever report on Matthews International Corp. for this Volio dog of the week portfolio. I did review it for Volio, also. 

Matthews International Corp is a personal services company that primarily provides brand solution services, memorialization products, and industrial products in the United States and Europe. 

The majority of Matthews' revenue is derived from its SGK Brand Solutions business, which provides brand development services, printing equipment, creative design services, and embossing tools to the consumer packaged goods and packaging industries. 

The company's Memorialization segment, which sells bronze and granite memorials, caskets, and cremation equipment to the cemetery and funeral home industries, also contributes a significant amount. Most of Matthews' revenue is generated from sales made in the U.S., while European customers also contribute a sizable percentage.

The company's Industrial Technologies segment designs, manufactures, and distributes marking and coding equipment and consumables, industrial automation products, and order fulfillment systems for identifying, tracking, picking, and conveying consumer and industrial products. 

This segment serves manufacturers, suppliers, and distributors of durable goods and building products; consumer goods manufacturers; and pharmaceutical producers.
