In about 2 1/2 hours my Grounded Investment Club (named after the Coffee Shop where most of the members hang out) shall be meeting. Last month I suggested that the club take a look at the auto parts stores.
I have some shares in my Covestor Buy and Hold Model
in Genuine Auto Parts (GPC
), and have smaller positions in Autozone (AZO
), O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY), and Advance Auto Parts (AAP
) in my personal trading account. But the Secretary of the club, Rick A. tasked me to pick one for the club and now at 3:17 pm (with the meeting starting at 5:30) I haven't done so yet. So with the Club and my readers in mind let's take a quick look at these four companies and let's see if I can narrow this down in any rational fashion.
For ease of this, let's concentrate on the parameters of value, fundamentals and technicals.
