    Am I missing something?

    And all along I thought earnings were important. Guess I'll go ahead and throw some of my money down the Mr. Payhole.

    • Growth can sometimes cost earnings, in the near
      term. Are you a long term investor? Are you one of
      those people that considers themselves to be a long
      term investor right up until the point you don't see
      any short term results? Warren Buffet has played the
      game pretty well, you might check out some of his
      strategies. If you're committed to being in the pawn arena,
      how could you not own the blue chip of pawn
      opportunities. The people at PWN believe in the check cashing
      technology, and they have good reason works.
      You've got to get out on the limb, because thats where
      the fruit is! How are the earnings of Yahoo, or Get my point?

      • I'm a very long term investor. I've never owned
        PWN, only PAWN. In order to really invest in growth,
        you have to believe that there is growth potential. I
        don't see it in PWN. Look at PAWNs most recent earnings
        release (yesterday). With only 11 units and 2 months
        worth of contributions for the quarter, PAWNs check
        cashing operations generated fees equal to 25% of the
        fees generated by PWN's check cashing operations.
        Extrapolate that to include an additional month and PAWN has
        383K worth of check cashing fee revenue to PWNs 988K,
        or 39% on 11 units. PWN has 189 check cashing
        locations including 40 Mr. Payroll machines. So, PAWN has
        6% of the number of units and 39% of the check
        cashing fees.

        I just don't see it.
