The only thing is that there isn't any bullish action in Pep Boys, unless PBY decides to buy back some more stock before the end of the quarter. They bought the stock fairly cheap, saved money on paying out some dividends AND increased the profit per share (or should I say decreased the loss per share). Most likely they're finished for now after a week or two of buying. On the other hand, AutoZone's (forward) PE is about 1/5th of PBY and doesn't need any propping up right now. I'm comparing forward PE's since, as you know, PBY doesn't have a trailing PE (too many losses).
