    I am convinced Wall Street is asleep! Last year, I made a post here, comparing Encore Capital Group (ECPG) with PRA Group, Inc (PRAA), noting that ECPG is substantially undervalued relative to PRAA. For example, ECPG has a P/E of 7.32, whereas PRAA has a P/E of 15.83. ECPG’s last earnings report was fantastic! Most recently, ECPG announced a consolidation of its borrowing facilities between its US and UK operations. This should reduce its borrowing costs substantially and add to its bottom line, based on the new facility alone. Wake up Wall Street! Wake up!

    Another superb earnings report from this under the radar company. Based on revised guidance for Q3 and call open interest spread in December, I could see this moving into the 60s or higher before end of year. The ceiling and growth potential is somewhat limited, but this is still a very solid value/defensive play in uncertain times.

    I'm talking in an echo chamber but I don't care. This is going to keep going higher. You can see no one is selling their shares over the last few weeks. The effects of the pandemic and massive unemployment, credit defaults, debt refinancing.. this company is well-established, well-run, increasing growth and potential. I wouldn't be surprised to see this continue to rise.

    Fantastic earnings call so far in terms of expense management and operational efficiency compared to Q1 2019. Global revenues may lag going into 2021 due to flexibility of repayment agreements in Europe, but I'm not concerned.. it is delayed collection not permanent loss. ERC up 20% from 2019, at 8.5 Billion now.. liquidity going forward. Reduced debt/equity ratio from 5.9 to 3.8.. impressive.. leading the industry. I think we see some upgrades tomorrow.

    I have been comparing Encore Capital Group, Inc (ECPG) with PRA Group, Inc (PRAA) on the basis of several indices. I’m perplexed about why ECPG appears to be substantially undervalued relative to PRAA. Last quarter, ECPG’s performance substantially exceeded consensus, while PRAA’s was lukewarm.
    As of May 17, 2019, according to Yahoo Finance, the current market cap of ECPG is 1.07B, while that of PRAA is 1.31B. Yet, ECPG’s enterprise value is 4.61B, while that of PRAA is 3.91B.
    Furthermore, ECPG has a trailing P/E ratio of 7.18, while that of PRAA is 22.04. ECPG’s forward P/E ratio is 5.75, while that of PRAA is 13.37.
    Also, ECPG has a PEG ratio of 0.5, while that of PRAA is 1.2. ECPG’s current P/B is 1.23, while that of PRAA is 1.19. ECPG’s book value per share (BVPS) is 28.17, while that of PRAA is 24.3.
    To summarize, ECPG looks substantially undervalued relative to PRAA. If anyone disagrees, I would like to know why.

    Value investing is easily one of the most popular ways to find great stocks in any market environment. After all, who wouldn't want to find stocks.

    Funny, I thought to myself, with millions of consumers defaulting on credit cards, public debt collection agencies should be making money hand over fist. And guess what - the biggest company $ECPG is skyrocketing today, up 20%!

    This company is actively engaging in re-aging fraud. Expect this company to have fraud litigation with clear evidence of fraud in the near future.

    More importantly, I am happy to invest in a company that can work with a growing global customer base to find debt solutions in these unprecedented times.
