LAD rarely outperforms the S&P 500. With the current release of lower than expected earnings, why would that change now?

Auto sales is obviously a cyclical industry, so some caution is warranted, though I think the company is positioning itself better for the next inevitable downturn. I also don’t think consolidation in the auto-dealership industry offers the same potential as that strategy in other industries might, given the limitations on the benefits of economies of scale. But management has proved its ability in my mind to successfully acquire, integrate, and improve the earnings of its targets (including the very large acquisition of DCH last year, which has gone very smoothly). Debt will need to be watched, especially as much of it is currently at variable interest rates, but overall the company’s strategy seems to be working well.

As a low-key way to play the increasing sales of new/used car sales in America, Lithia Motors remains a solid growth play due to its mix of same store sales growth and growth through acquisition Not surprisingly, the company's revenue and EPS growth is projected to be much more robust than that of the company's closest competitors.
