The company's name says it all; this is priced right and it's a smart buy.

Has a managable debt and a good niche market. The posible risks are that it has to grow where there is more competition or that it grows to fast.

I don't really understand the reason for the price drop after earnings, but happy to add a CAPScall at the better price.
The company is growing traffic and has very healthy retention rates -- and also benefits from a growing Latin American middle class.

I've liked PriceSmart for awhile, as they are following the same model (almost identically) that made Costco so successful. Outperform.

Costco of South America. Little earnings hiccup a while back but base is bottoming out and the future looks bright.

I will be buying 25 real shares around $94 and hold for at least 5 years, hopefully much longer.

Long. Costco of Latin America? Good steady growth. Pricey here at 32x ttm, 27xfye earnings, but might be a huge long term winner. Revenue growth was 13% last quarter, earnings grew by 18%.

Pricesmart operates in a macroeconomic landscape marked by robust growth fueled by an expanding infrastructure specifically the Panama Canal.

I live in Costa Rica and understand what Pricesmart is to the latino market. EVERY day, literally EVERY DAY, there is a line out the door to open, the parking lots stay full ALL DAY LONG until closing. Not to mention that personally it is one of the only places I can buy things and not feel like I am paying through my nose in VAT, which is common in Latin America. The business model is sound, the leadership is who made the business model to begin with (Price, et al), and there are plenty of green field growth opportunities on this one. Just compare their fundamentals to industry averages...it's all there.

Though they are a strong company with a successful business model, their competition is significant enough that they do not deserve their 30p/e ratio, especially considering new wharehouse club openings haven't been coming very fast

I just listened to the January 10, 2013 PSMT conference call and I am encouraged by their reported 2012 growth and forward looking growth metrics for 2013. In view of strong revenue increases in existing stores in Columbia, PSMT will open three more stores in Columbia in 2013. This expansion along with reported expected improvements in South American economic forecasts for 2013 bodes well for next year's returns. Management is happy with the very good performance of their South American stores although they see Caribbean operations not quite as rosy. Because of the steady growth seen in past quarters management continues to seek out real estate for new stores to open in 2014 in the larger metropolitan areas in Columbia and other regions where Pricesmart operates.

All in all the conference call sounded promising and I look forward to PSMT to outperform in 2013.

Great management team that understands the business. This is a great play on long-term growth in Latin and South America.

insulated from Europe and China, Costco model breeds consumer loyalty, part of an emerging middle class in Latin America. Plus it's come down heavy in the recent months, I'm putting my money where my mouth is

Fool screen with ROE high, ltDepbt=zero, earnings up for 3 years 10%, etc.Market is around 1300 - I see support at 1200 although we are in downtrend and Europe is scary. It's a game - hope for the best.

They've shown they are careful in their growth plans. Now they are getting ready to turn up the steam and watch out... the potential is huge!
