"Do you think EZPW's shares will rise if these are good reports?"
With such high ivolatility who can say?
It also depends on how/what FCFS/CSH report. FCFS/CSH have much higher pawn component than EZPW. Different market results as well since they are so much more diverse than EZPW. If they report any issues with Texas, that would be bad/(good).
Interesting to see how the military aspect plays out if at all.
EZPW has a higher percentage of pdl/cso stores relative to its total number of stores than FCFS and CSH. However, because a large number of those stores are pawn-adjacent and younger, EZPW actually had a slightly lower of overall revenues from pdl/cso than both FCFS and CSH. That should change in the near future as FCFS continues opening Mexican pawn stores and EZPW's pawn store base has been stuck at 280 for years (they did acquire one in the last year but shut down another).
