Strangely, despite strong margins, good earnings and a low P/E, I look for this chain to under-perform for a while. The reason? As more and more people convert to more fuel efficient vehicles, they will have to purchase NEW since there are so few gas misers available used. Consequently, I expect less need for parts as the nation's auto fleet becomes less aged during this transition.
