If you follow this stock you know that insiders have sold billions, the company has spent as much buying shares taking the float down to 39M level with cheap loans and vendor financed inventory. Through in some store growth and you get a magnificant story of double digit EPS growth for years. Now the question is how will the fuel the next EPS increase, buy shares at $380 (with what money?), grow same store sales (as a side note on this topic, AZO underperformed ORLY for the past 7 quarters, yet magically this last one ORLY grew 3.3% and AZO 5.9%, the highest for the calendar year) or level AP to Inventory to 200% (why not?).
Don't know what will happen, yet neither did Madoff until 2008 hit him, more than thirty years into a ponzi, will history repeat itself?
