    Is FAST cheating on depreciation?

    Capex has been running at an average of ~$20Mn/quarter over the last few years, but depreciation has held steady at ~$10Mn/quarter. Doesn't seem right. Looks like they try to juice earnings by not depreciating properly. Put an aggressive 20x multiple on earnings and this is a $25 stock.
