EC likes $FCFS because of growing earnings and revenues and aggressive expansion. Company will do well if gold continues to appreciate.

I originally put a 1Y timeframe on First Cash to capitalize on the comeback I envisioned from the AutoMaster debacle. That went better than I expected. The company has also done a fine job of reducing its exposure to the payday loan industry in states where it could no longer run a profitable business, while continuing to expand its pawn store count and profitability, primarily in Mexico. I like this now as a long term investment and have changed the time frame to the maximum. I expect them to continue to strengthen their Balance Sheet, now that they are focused on their core competency.

Before their foray into the auto market, their earnings increased

25% quarter over quarter for years. They have now shed threir

albatross and stick to what they do, they should do well.

Earnings. The only potential glitch is government intervention. Mgmt is honest, forward looking and flexible.

It has been upgraded by a professional with a target price of $20. I believe FCFS will hit that target price and thus will outperform the S&P 500. Also, this company makes short term loans and its main business if a pawn shop. It does not carry the high risk that banks and other financial companies do right now.

nothing worse than picking a stock and then not actually buying it! My first Motley fool issue early spring last year I think, price was aruond $7.00 I didn't even have a brokerage account then. So by the time I got up and running this may, it was all ready up to at least $12.00, I figured it was too late and didn't buy it. Idiot!

If they can focus on their core business, it is a cash cow.

Economy is crappy, credit is hard to come by (which is why rental centers will not do well), so where do you go when you need some cash?

This may seem like a risky investment, but it is still a bargain.
