If CRMT can maintain 10% growth (with new stores), and hold onto their margins and percentage profits, which earn in excess of 15% ROI; then it will outperform the market going forward from here at a P/E of about 12.

The company faces sigficant headwinds going into 2012 and I don't see them getting any better. Cost for use vehicles have gone up and will impact their bottom line. They are also targeting the low end segment of customers who have no or limited credit or impaired credit. With a looming recession coming along, their customer make up should increase their delinquencies.

Another worrying trend is the increasing rate of reserves for delinquent accounts. You don't increase that unless your expecting harder times to come up.

One more interesting tidbit: Arkansas apparently is working to amend their constitution to lower interest rates for non bank loans. Arkansas is their biggest customer base apparently with over 45% of receivables coming from that state. That is a huge risk for if it goes against them, their earnings will be hit hard.

I am compelled by the opportunity for earnings acceleration via the combination of improved lot productivity and more aggressive door growth, as proved by the latest quarter where even on an increasing store count, same store sales had an increase of 8.1%. Over the next 5 years I see potential for EPS to reach $4.00. On my judgment the 10.5 earnings multiple, is unfair, and does not reflect the high profitability of the company,the constantly immpressive exection on the top and bottom line, and mostly the friendly-shareholder board of the company. The company has a long term growth rate of 15%, and putting a market valuation multiple of 16 today rewards investors handsomly. The nature of the business is very attractive as well, in an environment of high unemployment, and strict lending standarts by the banks, the "PAY HERE BUY HERE MODEL" seems the only way to buy a car for a fairly high number of people. Apparrently "Mr Market" thinks that earnings will be on a downward spiral from here forward, in the words of Mr.Peter Lynch; once again ''Mr Market'' seems to overly opptimistic about the future. BUY...

Technically, long term resistance was hit and have started to bounced south.
Fundamentally, though consumers will buy more used car than new ones in this economy. consumers don't necessary has the financing nor cash to buy A LOT of used cars. The bull run from 7 to 21 isn't justified. Retracement into the $15-17 zone is very likely in the next few months.

Down, down it goes. This fly-by-wire company will fail before the biggies do...no matter what their CEO says.

Has a strong upward price trend since beginning of March 2008 even in a very volatile market. It's value is increasing due to its strong growth rate and profitability. It's a great undervalued buy!

personally visited dealerships. Real inventory turn around will draw a higher quality customer. Company thrives in a bad credit market

Terrific growth!
Will continue to grow as people buy used cars, especially in a down market.

This is a value play just for the sheer ammount of book value that they posses (in the form of tan. assets of course!)

I will say that they are a bit low on cash, BUT used cars are the sort of thing that they don't have to put much money in, and then they get a nice markup, if they have to bring in a ton of cash quickly, they just discount the cars a bit, and sell a ton more...

They just bought a dealership here in Lexington, KY (on New Circle) and made it quite nice, I would imagine that they will take a tone of sales in this city, and in many others.

The company had a down turn this quarter, which is making a great buying opportunity for the rest of us!

I think CRMT will alienate less people with the new strategy of reducing repo's by avoiding extention of credit above a customers ability to pay, only putting them in a car they can afford.

Should grow net income at 15% - 20%/annum for a long time and has far less risk than people think, yet it only trades at 10x next year's earnings.
