I think as millenials head into the future that cars will be wants and not needs. As automated cars hits the roads the sales of new cars I suspect will decrease in volume. The purchase of rides is already trending upwards and can only go up from there. This is a part why Carmax is a good buy. Car owners are holding on to their cars longer and the trend to buy a car every few years is now starting to wane. A lot of factors are playing into why purchasing NEW cars are starting to be less appealing. I just paid ours off and am actually wondering if this is truly the last car I will buy... compelling and provocative thought. And IM A CAR GUY!

Regardless of consumer confidence and oil prices, I believe KMX has little downside because of its robust revenue growth despite drastic fluctuations in consumer confidence and oil prices over the past five years. KMX is expected to have a 10.2% compounded annual revenue growth rate from 2011 to the end of this year, per a Morningstar report. The best-case scenario would be for the U.S. to experience high consumer confidence and low oil prices. However, any combination of consumer confidence and oil prices should not cause significant downside for KMX in the long run.

While most analysts already posted a buy/hold rating for KMX when it was trading below $56 in mid-November, I believe there is still potential for upside, as the issues mentioned above are still putting downward pressure on KMX's current price of $64. KMX is currently with a P/E of 21 compared to the sector median of 19. I believe this small premium is more than reasonable as KMX is the largest U.S. car dealer and has significantly better operating margins (6.7%) than its peers (~3.7%) - AutoNation Inc. (NYSE:AN), Lithia Motors, Inc. (LAD), Group 1 Automotive Inc. (GPI), Asbury Automotive Group, Inc. (ABG). But most importantly, KMX has a solid corporate strategy, which allows it to use a "no-haggle" sales method that competing dealerships have struggled to implement.
