: AutoZone Is A Great Business At A Good Price
AutoZone Is A Great Business At A Good Price
Oct.26.17 | About: AutoZone, Inc (AZO)
AutoZone has been dragged down with the wider retail industry and is selling for a good price.
This business is a specialty retailer with more of a durable competitive advantage than other competitors.
As a cheap growth company, this could be a great business to buy for the long term.
As the market at large rises in value, many businesses in the retail sector continue to show discounted valuations based on traditional methods, primarily due to the disruptive nature of online competitors such as Amazon (AMZN), and changes in consumer behavior. Looking at AutoZone Inc. (AZO) we can see a business that is highly specialized, a leader in its field, and one that shows signs of maintaining a competitive advantage over others with similar valuations and similar product offerings. Competitors such as O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY), and Advance Auto Parts (AAP) are interesting on their own and worth further research, but the largest of these players and where upward price momentum has gathered over the past month or so tell us that it may still be a good time to buy AutoZone.
.....AutoZone has robust fundamentals and as well as sector leading margins.
.....The company has steady and consistent growth.
......Essentially, the stock is undervalued.
AutoZone (AZO) is stalwart. Its top growth has been too slow and steady to attract much attention from the Street, or to cause its stock to trade at large multiple. Compounding matters it has had two quarters in fiscal 2017 which dragged down the stock and shook investors' confidence in AutoZone. I suspect that these fears are most likely overblown and in spite of having already started to recover there is still time to benefit from this pricing which created a significantly large margin of safety. Potential upside of approximately 50%.
AutoZone was able to reverse two substandard quarters and ended Q4 2017 with same store sales increase of 1%, which ultimately culminated in the full year 2017 ending up 0.5%.
AutoZone: Verdienen Sie an den guten Geschäften einfach mit!
?.... mit seinem Geschäftsmodell verdient AutoZone in guten wie in schlechten Zeiten. In guten Zeiten geben die Autoliebhaber mehr Geld für teures Zubehör aus. Das ist in den USA genauso wie hierzulande. Werden die wirtschaftlichen Bedingungen schwieriger, fahren die Amerikaner ihre Autos länger, statt ein neues zu kaufen. Auch das ist bei uns nicht anders. Und bei einem längeren Gebrauch steigt zwangsläufig der Reparaturbedarf, der sich selbst bei knappen Budgets kaum hinauszögern lässt. Wie Sie wissen, hat bei uns spätestens der TÜV das letzte Wort.?
AutoZone (AZO) has been whipsawed in the past few months as investors collectively gave up on the auto parts retailers earlier this summer, but have since returned to AZO in particular in force as buyers. Concerns over growth and margins for AZO took the stock off of its highs very early on in 2017 but those fears appear to have abated for value seekers that recognize AZO's position within its sector of retail. The stock is up a bunch off of its lows but to my eye, it still looks reasonably cheap here given the rate that buybacks are being done.
Positive outlook for 2018 given management's efforts to handle increasing consumer demand.
Expanding margins show no sign of slowing down, with a bright future ahead.
Comparable company analysis shows AutoZone undervalued on an earnings basis relative to its peers.
When looking at the automotive parts industry as a whole, AutoZone (NYSE:AZO) is one of the best players in the game, neck and neck with O'Reilly Automotive (NASDAQ:ORLY). With a strong record of revenue growth, the company continues to impress.
: AutoZone Continues to Open New Stores.......
.......... Despite Expense Woes.
The company uses its robust cash position to open new stores every year. During first-quarter 2018, AutoZone opened 16 new stores. Also, during the quarter, the company relocated one and closed another store in the United States. It also opened five new stores in Mexico. As of Nov 18, 2017, the company had 5,480 stores across 50 states in the United States, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, 529 in Mexico, 26 Interamerican Motor Corp. branches and 14 stores in Brazil. The total store count was 6,049 as of that date.
... Tax reform is not being factored into AutoZone's earnings estimates.
... I expect forward E.P.S to be above $60/share.
... AutoZone could go to $1,000 and still be cheap.
... A very cold winter will increase the failure rate for auto parts.
AutoZone's 2018 earnings estimates have barely budged in the past three months, leaving an opportunity for savvy investors to get ahead of increased guidance when the company reports its earnings at the end of next month. The company is regaining momentum after a slower than average growth rate in 2017. The brutal cold that has dominated the winter this year greatly increases the failure rate of auto parts, and tax reform will bring significantly higher earnings going forward. As always, AutoZone is buying its shares as fast as it can make money, and the triple combo of higher sales, lower taxes, and lower shares outstanding could drive this stock to $1,000 in the very near future.
der Markt zumindest wieder etwas zurückkommt könnten wir ans alte hoch laufen an dir 797 bei Bruch auch gerne zügig hundert dollar nach zwischenstopp bei 850 an dir 900. Ende september wurden aktie rückkäufe ausgerufen. Scheint mir eine passende Zeit zu sein. Der Abgabedruck die letzten Wochen waren marginal im Vergleich zum gesammtmarkt.
kurse um die tausend sind greifbar. Egal wie es Wirtschaftlich aussieht, Zone kann Geld drucken.. In einer hochkonjunktur verkaufen und basteln die Viel aber wenn die Konjunktur abflaut dann werden die Leute weniger neue Autos kaufen und lassen mehr reparieren. Ein simpeles aber durchaus schlüssiges Argument das Zone auch in flauen Phasen weiter läuft.. auch sas lauern am hoch lässt auf eine schnelle fortsetzung hoffen.. wird spannend!
