Acquisitions will continue in 2013 " OREILLY AUTOMOTIVE BECOMES #1 IN NATION"
ORLY has been stealthly buying auto parts stores throughout 2012 with the 56 stores & 1 DC being the latest, also buying 3b worth of stock is quite impressive, whether to add value to their stock price or maybe offering a dividend in the future which would allow them to retain company profits. Orly has had a great track record of success, top notch dedicated mangement as well as employee's & has made alot of people very rich including myself, having been an investor since the IPO of 93, all this said ORLY has much larger acquisitions ahead in 2013 & I believe that entry into overseas areas will be major objective , but not until 2014-15 long ORLY 2013 YEAR END STOCK PRICE PREDICTION IS $ 118.00
I certainly agree that O'Reilly will dominate and overtake Autozone. My prediction would be that O'Reilly will overtake Autozone by surpassing their market cap then overtake gross revenue. We'll just have to wait and see what happens.
