    if fcfs bought ezpw it would be 50% accretive to fcfs earnings next year

    FCFS should approach EZPW's shareholders and say it wants to buy our stock for $24 / share, half in stock and half in cash. Since Brinkley decides to sell shares every month at $18, he should love to sell all of them for $24!

    If they paid $24 they would need to issue about 11.5m shares of their stock and raise about $650m of debt at 5-7% interest rates to be able have funds for the purchase price. They can then sell off the non Mexico/US assets they don't want, not put any incremental $ into EZLoans and it would still be massively accretive. They can integrate all of the US pawn and Mexico pawn stores and figure out more ways for Crediamigo to make $ with their Mexican connections.

    FCFS shareholders will be shocked that their 2014 EPS will now be closer to $5 after they've gotten rid of the bad EZPW mgmt and payday lending business, and the stock will go to $70. Seriously.

    Sentiment: Buy
