    In trying times

    better re-read the April 23 company earnings report. FCFS is highly profitable, Ebita over $2. Actual earning $1. Revenue growth, margin growth, net earning growth all good.

    Hopefully this sell off is just redemption, margin call and weak hands throwing in the towel. Pawnshops usually do better in recession because of increased business. Maybe 50 % jump in revenue .

    • Well, I'm taking a pretty good hit, but I don't see any news beyound the general depression in the market. If I can get any more money I'll be adding to my position. This seems to be a very well run company and at the current price it looks like a steal. When does their earnings report come out?

      • Last time it was Ap 23. ARe they reporting tomorrow ? The market is killing everything approaching reporting date. Absolutely no buyers in illiquied stock.

        The good thing from today's trading is , volume did not snow ball on the way down. Meaning no big sellers, meaning noone with inside information with a lot to lose are bailing out.

        I think earnings will be OK. FCFS is profitable, no need to cheat books like Worldcom.
