Because they keep buying up dealerships. When the next wave of car buying comes, they'll be raking it in.

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.

Excellent dividend from a used car dealer. Folks need to trade in the gas guzzler for higher fuel efficiency. This corporation is shedding locations that are losing money and claims to be focusing on vehicles with higher fuel efficiency. Anyone know if they have a Vespa franchise?

Not likely to go out of business, losing money very slowly.

Current p/s=.04, p/b=.25 hard to beat that.

Either will recover or be bought.

They act like used car salesmen, but perhaps that's not too surprising. I recently shorted this and made a lot of points, but now I'm going to pick it as a value stock.

Terrific value at the current price. As the economy weakens, look for more consumers to go used with their automotive purchases, and look for this stock to accelerate upward.

Lithia Motors has been slapped down from over $30 a share in late 2006 to under $7 now. They are still making a profit despite tough times and the company said in its Q1 2008 report that they are going to shift focus on cars and brands with better MPG. This is a restructuring play, if you buy now, realize the stock could drop further. It is very unlikely that Lithia will go bankrupt because the company still has positive working capital and is making a profit (if you exclude the interest charge on inventory). They're also selling 15 lots that are underperforming and this will definately shore up any near-term weakness on the balance sheet.

Lithia is a value play if I've ever seen one. The country is in a recession, but not a depression. Sure, auto sales are going to hurt, but the recovery is probably less than 18 months out. Lithia will weather the storm and when it does, investors who got in below $10 will count their lucky stars.

This fool hopes he's not catching a falling knife, but when a company is trading at .04x sales and .2 times book value, it is just too cheap to pass up.

I expect this stock now at bottom and a great buy for a value investor. It pays a good dividend and when the economy recovers for the auto industry we should see 100% capital appreciation in the next three years.

This company has stunk... It lowers expectations and now it has negative quarters. But this company has gone far below its true value. But this one is a risky one. Use caution.

As everyone can clearly see the trends of the market and economy greatly affect this stock. With the changes being made by the Feds on a quarterly basis I predict that this stock will rise once the dust clears. This company is implementing several changes to better its future. Currently lower than its IPO price. Between 2 and 4 years this company will be back to $30. Buy now while its cheap.

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

Right now they have 109 stores and predict over 300 by 2012 lets say they miss that mark and they will but 230 is where they might end up by 2012 and for me thats a good # just the same especially with the new Assured sales and service its great for the customer
