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.
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.
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.
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.
This pathetic firm continues to dissapoint and go nowhere.
So the more relevant issue is the whereabouts of that roofer and lawn cutter Patrick is satisfying his country of origin's desire to offload him to America to find his own tacos and beans.
Little Patrick has always been such a supporter of the undertrodden who work at Pepboys without all the legal papers needed to work and stay in America.
We have alll suspected the Patrick's wife also lacks such papers and is just one door knock away from a swift trip south to be with her countrymen.
We all hope little Patrick is still among the living; there has been a great quiet from his taco stained lips for too long.
Come back Patrick come back - I have yardwork for you.
So tired old Pepboys is pushing a buy 3 get he 4th free tire sale on TV.
Time to trade in that old donkey you ride and get a decent junker with new tires so you can take the old wife down to the village square for a pitcher of beer.
PBY is down in the 8s and still nobody is daring enough to even mention interest in buying it out.
Bet they could buy it for 9 and enough shareholders would bite and jump ship.
Jim vocalized exactly what I have been telling you for the past six years.
The Pepboys business model is broken and all their so called talent cannot fix it.
They cannot use their $50 million to buy back stock; the covenents of their loans do not allow that.
They cannot execute even reasonably well - even when the sale of the firm is riding on it.
Not so much a sell [you're just stuck with it now] as an "avoid".
How many warnings do all you yahoos need to be educated into what stocks to avoid?
Well this POS stock is back down to the 8 dollar range I predicted years and years ago.
Gore took a nibble at this turkey and management proved itself again by not being able to JUST sustain earnings for a quarter.
Gore got a better idea of the POS company this really is.
And it is a shame - Pepboys is an icon of America.
But its managers and directors and workers have run it into the ground.
And the market today doesn't even value its stock above its book [i.e., breakup] value.
There is always the chance of a dead cat bounce. But do you want the stench of a dead cat on your hands by playing that game.
Even little Patrick, an illegal Mexican roofer, will not touch this stock.
