The Largest United States Used-Car Retailer Ready to Re-Emerge from the Dip

The purpose of this analysis is to inform readers about those companies that, after a temporary decline, are ready to follow the underlying positive medium-long term trend (Buy the Dip) based on the target price expected by analysts.

In the “card” supplied with the company chart it is possible to find information on analysts’ expectations about the future of the company.

In particular, ideal companies should possess the following characteristics:

  • Technical:
    • positive medium-long term price trend
    • signs of recovery after a temporary decline lasting a few days / week
  • Fundamental:
    • analysts expect further stock price growth in the coming months
    • analysts expect growth in EPS (Earnings-Per-Share) over the next 5 years
    • in the last quarterly report the company reported higher EPS than analysts’ expectations

The pause of a trend does not guarantee a subsequent continuation, but may indicate the beginning of a negative trend. The purpose of this analysis is purely informative.

Differences with the real “buy the dip” strategy

Generally the “buy the dip” strategy refers to buying shares of a company during a decline. This analysis differs because the potential entry point is after the decline has stopped and the stock price is ready to returning in the direction of the main positive trend.
