  • Yep - sure looks like you are shopping at Wal-mart.
    The Baja plates were the give away.

    Lots of good deals inside
    They even have a special window to convert your pesos into real American dollars.

    Awwww - what a complainer you still are Patrick.

    Can't you just enjoy the Walmart experience like the rest of America.
    Oh - I forgot you don't come from America.

    Carl will do his best not to buy this turkey. He pumped it up and has a boatload of shares he will be selling to make the fast buck and then weasel out on the deal. And Bridgestone has already folded its tent.
    Don't wait around hoping a white knight will appear and bid this up any higher.
    I will never sleep with Carl -- he is just too crusty.

    Pepboys has had buyer before and after more investigation they walk away even if it cost them earnst money.
    Note PBY is losing 22 cents a share right now. So if the tire firm gets down and sees how badly the business model works here, they best run away too.

    Take the offer. It could have been more if the broken business model had worked.

    Spend the money on fun stuff. It's been too long seeing how to be part of a broken business.

    Their business model just does not product profits. In todays world who wants to buy a loser?

    Stockwise - Autozone and Advance Auto Parks are rockets to the moon. Apparently their business plan works.

    I used to think that Exxonwould buy PBY out. But no longer.
    Pepboys has demonstrated that they know not how to run their business.
    No dividend to the shareholders for 5 and 1/2 years.
    Losing money right now - fairly good economy, lots and lots of cars on the road needing stuff.

    CEOs roll and and CEOs roll out == no improvement in performance of company and stock is stagnant.

    Firmly advocate selling this now -- take the money and by CVX or WMT that are huge and have a solid track record of increasing dividends and do in fact go up over time.

    As an investment -- don't waste your time waiting and hoping on Pepboys.

    New CEO should get the stock up a little

    You're prepared [and hoping] that his POS stock will go up just 3 dollars in 2 or 3 years????
    Get outa this stock.
    Go to Auto zone or o'riley's or aap or even gpc. All in the parts business and they go up 2 or 3 dollars a week.

    So many years now, management has always said " just wait another year and we'll break out to the upside"

    And every year there is a hard luck story of why nothing happened.

    This company doesn't make any money at all right now -- look at the Yahoo summary page for PBY.

    There as so many other companies making money and dispensing generous dividends. Right now.

    How can you all be so stupid as a group?

    Well its been years now of dismal performance and outright blunders by Pepboys.
    There stock has not made any normal person money.
    Their business model just does not work. It struggles, but is not successful.
    Yet you all still believe there is light just around the bend.
    O'Reileys makes money and its stock is high and moves higher.
    Auto Zone is makes money and its stock is really high and moves higher.
    Pepboys struggles and fails to find a management team that can turn the business around.
    And some hopeful managers of the past just took their money and options and ran.
    Is there any firm effort to change the composition of the Board of Directors to put more competent persons in there? NO.
    As shareholders you suffer.
    Look at Radio Shake, that is PBY's future.

    How many years have I told you all that this turkey is going out at eight?
    Well Mario is you best chance of changing out management and maybe [just maybe] save this company from a full bankruptcy.
    Even worse is that customers will be shying away from the parts and service because the end looks so near.
    What good is a lifetime warranty on a Pepboys water pump if Pepboys goes under, or changes management with a different attitude about honoring the "old Pepboys" claims?

    All you stockholders who supported all the crazy management teams thru the years deserve to lose every dime you have invested. You had chances to vote the bums out but you did not. And look at what you have now.

    With so many fine companies paying around a 3% dividend, its so sad to see this firm in such bad shape in a thriving economy unable to payback the shareholders anything.
    If only there were strong leadership.....

    Little Patrick sure won't be able to feed his stubby little Mexican wife tortillas and beans with the money performance of this stock.
    Go South Patrick, go South - where the sun always shines and living is easy.

    I see their latest TV ads and its a tire at 28 and change.
    Patrick's south of the border lifestyle should embrace this type of tire.

    When you buy one Patrick be sure to ask for the Pepboys bonus of the day.
    A softshell taco.
    That should go well with your taste buds down there.

    Youuuuuuuuuu little inpertenant #$%$ ant. Just may have to call your stubby Mexican wife and inform hher of the attempts you are making to get me into your Mexican piece of junk car.
    So happy they fired your greasy #$%$ from the Pepboys store.

    Management takes care of themselves and cares less about you shareholders.

    Future guidance is so bad at Pepboys, even the so called mechanics are heading back home south of the boarder.

    The management of this company are the pits.
    They are not even worth sleeping with to get inside information.
    They have no inside information; they are clueless.

    The directors are the biggest group of dipwads you'd ever see together at one time.

    The worker bees are best described by their taco lunches.

    Why do Autozone and NAPA do so well?
    They both avoid the business model of Pepboys.

    Even little Patrick won't buy oil filters here.

    Yes it is little Patrick my Mexican gardener who left me to high tail back to his homeland south of the border to bask in the sunshine and layabout.
    Because of Patrick the dividend has disappeared this year.
    The stock is way down from its lofty $15 or so.

    The stock is a POS and the consuming public is staying away from the stores.
    What else could go wrong?

    But beware Patrick, they will pick you up at the border.
    My lawn and bush have grown so much in your absence.

    I don't think Mario is very good at picking stocks, Pedro.
    I remember years ago when he tauted Kerr Glass as the stock to buy.
    Within a year it went bankrupt.

    Besides, Mario is an old angry man who is only out to feather his own nest.
    If he says to buy a stock its probably because he wants the demand to raise the shareprice so he can get out making money on your unfortunate choice of investments.

    This company is failing.
    It has been failing for years.
    My VS subscription bring comfort to my life.
    Why can't FOH do the same?

  • Year after year this group of yahoos keeps voting in the management foisted group of directors. These directors have been bad for Pepboys and continue to not hold Odell accountable for poor performance.

    The shareholders have nobody else to blame but themselves.
