U-Haul is one of the most recognized brands in the United States. It is #1 in DIY moving. It has 8x as many locations and 4x as many vehicles as its nearest competitor (i.e network effect), resulting in enhanced convenience for customers while providing a better value proposition to prospective franchisees. It offers numerous ancillary products and services that differentiate its service from competitors. U-Haul is believed to represent approximately half the DIY-moving market (based on revenue), with the remaining half largely split by the two remaining national players – Budget Truck Rental and Penske Truck Rental – and smaller regional players

storage and moving... huge upside over competitors. Lot of leverage so thats a problem... long term demographics mean more people, less space.

UHaul! How do you not like this one? It carries a PE of 13, w/ ROE of 22% and 22% earnings growth. There is debt, but they own a lot of real estate.

AMERCO is the holding company for U Haul. The company's core truck rental business is expanding and becoming more efficient. Fleet and location expansion strengthens the intra-city business competitive advantage and should be beneficial for pricing. At the same time, competition is falling, which should help pricing with inter-city business.

AMERCO also operates a very profitable storage business that is hidden from common view given the holding company structure. Self storage is a good business, especially as a cash cow to fund reinvestment into the improving truck rental business.

Long. Should continue to do well as the housing market recovers. Last quarter revenues were p 11% and earnings up 40%. Good value here at 11x trailing earnings.

When the overly optimistic FOMC says that household spending will be "constrained" by sluggish income growth, ongoing job losses, lower household wealth, and tight credit AND Shanghai stocks hit a seven-week low, then you know this bear market rally is finally over!

The 1929-1930 equity rally (coming out of The Great Depression) lasted 147 days and the market was up 46%. It has been the same amount of time since the March, 2009 low and we are up about the same percentage. It’s déjà vu (paramnesia), so prepare for a drop of about the same percentage (85%).

Don't like the long-term prospects for U-haul at all. Their management stinks, and the business model is out-of-date.

It is one thing to spend $4,000 to move your junk across country after you make a small fortune selling your overpriced home, it is another matter when you lost your shirt.

U-Haul makes their profit from the one way moves, the local trucks serve only to keep the store location open, they have had $19.95 printed on the sides of those trucks since I can remember and they don't plan to repaint all their trucks because of a little inflation.

When the stock hits $20 I will buy again.
