Wisconsin, where it gets 20 below zero. If it won't start do you push it or jump it? Batteries loose 50 percent or more of their cranking power at that temp. It would run on coal which is my most expensive form of energy here.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
My daughter passed away last month and they sent a collection notice along with a condolences notice for 410.36 to her estate. My daughter never owned a Sprint phone in her life. I turned the letter over to the police dept. and the Dept. of trade and consumer protection as an attempt to defraud her estate.
will be 11-12 dollars after today's earnings. IMO
Look at the chart. It now has exactly a 7 year losing streak. It is just a poorly run company that has only enriched management. It cost me a lot just before they did their reverse split. Live and learn I guess. Thankfully I have not trusted it for an investment for many years.
I shorted it Friday at 66.55. I was certain the FAA would not simply allow them to just build a modified case for batteries that could burn up or explode. The danger of shorting it is they do buy their own stock back and can skew the price anytime they choose.
It looks to me if you go with the non-gapp and don't count the bad stuff they did alright. Otherwise not too good considering it has gone up about $16 without anything changing.
They missed revenues by 18 million dollars. I covered my short at 9.99.
Pep Boys Swings to Third-Quarter Loss on Charges, Weak Sales

Pep Boys-Manny Moe & Jack (PBY) swung to a fiscal third-quarter loss as the
auto-care company recorded one-off charges, and its sales sank.
Shares fell 6.5% after hours to $9.99. Through the close, the stock was down 2.9%
so far this year.
Pep Boys' core profits have declined in recent quarters; the company blamed a
mild winter, a slowdown in consumer spending and business-execution problems. Pep
Boys has said it is making changes and expects to return to year-to-year profit
in the third and fourth quarters.
Chief Financial Officer David Stern said the company refinanced its debt in the
latest quarter, adding a one-time cost of $11.2 million. But he said the move
will reduce annual interest expenses by $11 million.
In May, private-equity firm Gores Group lLC dropped its bid to take the
auto-parts and services company private in an $804 million deal. The proposed
acquisition, which followed nearly two years of deliberations, soured after the
company's results began to deteriorate.
For the quarter ended Oct. 27, Pep Boys reported a profit of $6.8 million, or 13
cents a share, compared with a year-earlier profit of $7 million, or 13 cents a
share. The latest quarter included the debt-refinancing charge and an asset
write-down of $8.8 million.
Sales fell 2.4% to $509.6 million.
Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters recently predicted per-share earnings of 15
cents on revenue of $528 million.
Same-store sales fell 2.7%. Comparable service-center revenue edged up 0.2%,
while comparable retail sales were 3.5% lowe
There will be many good useable parts available from cars of all years and brands from salvage yards due to flood damage. It will hurt future new part sales on the east coast. Most flood damaged cars are unrepairable. Just my take but who knows.
