This managment team has grown earnings in 66 out of the last 67 quarters. Umm, that's 16 years. Over last 8 years EPS growth has averaged approx 24%, and is showing no signs of decreasing. Mkt cap is just over $100mil, have only 46 branches so room to grow exponetially, CEO owns a large position, CFO been with the company since 1988, and market that they serve is highly fragmented and enormous in size. Amazing part is that current PE is 10 which is less than half of the 24% recent rate of growth. Some risks are rising interest rates, poor economy and concentration of essential skills in the top two managers. However, this company is priced for virtually no growth, vs recent and long term growth over 20%. There is no forseeable cap on their growth either. This is a really outstanding opportunity. I think these shares could be worth at lease twice what they currently trade for.

Cheap at 10x trailing earnings. has consistently grown earnings over the years while delivering a 20% ROE. Recent earnings miss has created a buying opportunity.

Most reliable stock in the market is too boring for Wall Street. Sleeping my way to 20% a year.

Interesting company that basically makes used car loans at 20+%. Company continues to grow and could be an acquisition target.
