They had sent a number of offers including $10 oil changes and free gift cards to the first so many customers. Now they say its for one store.
Dear Valued Customers,
We are celebrating a Grand Opening in our Charlotte, NC stores this weekend and unfortunately, the informative email about the event was sent to customers outside that area. Those offers are only valid as a part of our Grand Opening Event at the Charlotte locations. We sincerely apologize for any confusion and would like to offer 15% off any service or retail purchase on your next visit at Pep Boys.
Chief Marketing Officer, Pep Boys
Biglaris buying is not meaningful from a predictive standpoint. He is required to buy so much stock as a % of his bonus every year. And he gets a huge bonus every year.
The directors, on the other hand, don't have any extra incentive so their buys are a little more meaningful but they are, of course, much smaller amounts.
Any stock that pays a large dividend or has a rights offering like this is subject to some wild fluctuations.
I don't think it means much in the long run.
Hopefully, 5 years from now we will be better off than today. We know Biglari will because he gets a $10 million a year bonus.
I presume this was from before yesterdays results. So I expect these will change based on their updated models from yesterdays call & guidance.
Id say anything less than 80 cents would be a disappointment given the stock is $18.64 as I type this.
The average is 68 cents. Low was 46 cents.
Avg. Estimate -0.11 0.53 0.39 0.68
No. of Analysts 2.00 2.00 5.00 4.00
Low Estimate -0.17 0.50 0.34 0.46
High Estimate -0.05 0.55 0.43 0.91
Interestingly, I had a buy order in at $376 that I just cancelled about a week ago when I knew Id be getting the rights shares.
I sold 4 shares to round a lot out at $446.46. In hindsight, I guess I should have dumped my entire position.
Positive comps and they will continue. He did exactly what he said he was going to do and as the stock had been predicting for the last year or so.
Now its just a question of what kind of earnings power they have for the new year and going forward.
A bit surprised that the store count is going to go down. But total square footage should remain the same.
There is no evidence that the stock is massively overvalued.
I really don't know what kind of EPS they will earn over the next year.
If its $1+, the stocks fine or going higher. If its 40 cents, its going lower.
The volume in UNAM is still way too small to be meaningful.
I don't think anything is going to happen there. Im sure Biglari would love to buy it at Book Value, but he isn't going to pay a 20% premium and they wont sell it to him for book value.
Stupid patsie deserves to lose their lousy $434.
Im fine with patsies losing money, They deserve it. Im not fine with predatory criminals like Dennis Calvert lying to then to induce them to lose their money.
And of course, they have no value if they don't buy a profitable business.
As of December 31, 2013, the Company had U.S. federal net operating loss carryforwards, including those acquired in the Company's past acquisitions, of approximately $16.9 million
They certainly don't seem to be in any hurry to make a deal or keep us informed.
However, insiders have not bought in some time which could mean they are in talks. Or it could just mean they don't want to pay up.
The litigation never was a significant matter.
