Same store sales will begin to decline. Competition (fair or unfair)from Walmart will be relentless. Creative lease/finance arrangements will take away value of real estate from share holders. Wholesaleing to repair shops is currently the only saving grace and admittedly does offer management an opportunity. I'm just not convinced they're up to it. Middle management may be great, but top management (let's see, have they been without a president for a few months and no one seems to care???) is asleep at the wheel. Partnerships with companies selling on the web with little physical presence could produce win/win results. (Whoops, sorry for using another buzz word.) We're simply not going to return to the days of changing oil and fan belts in the driveway. Someone with a degree in astrophysics probably couldn't figure it out anyway!!
If you are in at $6, you have proven to be a smart short term investor, congratulations! I remain convinced the company must change dramatically to survive another 10 years.
