    P/E = 12.8

    I agree with the last meessage. The further it drops the better. Hopefully 50-60 for a couple years. But it never will. I really don't like companies with any debt so I will not buy more.

    I known lots of companies that aren't around anymore, Thrifty, Two Guys, Builders Emporium, Treasury, ... Thats what happens to companies with debt, they risk going too far.

    • While I can understand your apprehension regarding debt, I feel as though are aren't rationally thinking about it.

      Debt is a tool that can increase returns to shareholders. By borrowing money and buying back stock, EPS will grow all else equal.

      AutoZone is a stable company where debt can be used as a tool.
