In their 2nd article they claim growth at GPC is great and at azo flat.gpc2000 8370 MM sales 172.4 MM shares out2003 8449 MM sales 174.0 MM shares outazo2000 4483 MM sales 121 MM shares out2003 5467 MM sales 88.9 MM shares outBut overall thanks for the negative news, motley morons, keeps the price down so azo gets a better price.
Bill...were they referring to same store sales? Comp increases? Revenue growth is easy when your store count goes up...doesn't always mean it is a good year or quarter.
No they were refering that gpc is a better investment than azo. azo is increasing earnings and revenue per share 20 percent annually. gpc most likely will have 5 percent annual revenue per share and eps growth. At least it pays a dividend.
