    Why does PBY compare so POORLY against O'Reilly ?

    Look at the difference in share prices.
    ORLY spans 78$ to $128 in the past 52 weeks.
    Puny PBY spans $8.96 to $13.00 in the past 52 weeks.

    Looks at the profit margins:
    ORLY has a 9.76% profit margin.
    Puny PBY has a paltry 0.74% profit margin [less than one percent]

    Both companies dispense auto part.
    Go to the counter ask for part for specific car model and year and get it.
    Both have shelves full of stuff customers can browse thru and select.

    Why is Pepboys just basically pathetically poor?

      Authoritarianism ,A form of government that subordinates all aspects of its citizens' lives to the authority of the state, with a single charismatic leader as the ultimate authority. , but totalitarianism has existed throughout history throughout the world. It is distinguished fromdictatorship and authoritarianism by its supplanting of all political institutions and all old legal and social traditions with new ones to meet the state's needs, which are usually highly focused. Large-scale, organized violence may be legitimized. The police operate without the constraint of laws and regulations. Where pursuit of the state's goal is the only ideological foundation for such a government, achievement of the goal can never be acknowledged.Short definition of how some of your V.Psand Area directors treat their staff. The C.E.O and the new Vice President should evaluate these incompetent individuals, and relief them of their duties. You want to  implement customer service behavior in your stores but don't check how your staff is harassed and discriminated daily.A few months i was let go from my job!  Yes from your company. Not only was the dismissal wrongful but they had open positions in other location where i could have relocated , but i was denied. Good things do happen to those who are mistreated, i'm a example of this improper behaviour. The good thing was, that I was hired by state police. Better career, better benefits, better environment work place, and above all RESPECT!.I have seen my manager get treated like he was a child, humiliated in front of his peers, and worse of all in front of CUSTOMERS. YES, this does happen in your locations.No store in any corporation can be perfect, but RESPECT should NEVER BE LACKING FROM THE MOUTHS OF ANY SUPERIOR!!!!!
