  • 1. Barrington Research analysts commented, "We believe the quarter should at least be within a $0.50-0.51 range as industry fundamentals remain strong in terms of total losses. Global inventory for CPRT at the end of Q1/19 decreased 1.5% YOY due to tough comps from CAT vehicles related to Hurricane Harvey. Factoring out CAT vehicles, global inventory growth totaled 10% including 10.4% in the U.S. and 14% in international markets." (2/19/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Expanding network of facilities, majorly in the U.K. and Germany has enabled Copart drive quarterly revenues. During the last reported quarter, it opened six locations in Germany, which will aid Copart in a competitive marketplace. Moreover, the company’s global unit sales improved across the United States and internationally. Further, it believes in organic growth as well as expansion through acquisition. However, rising general and administrative expenses, mainly due to costs incurred in hurricanes over the past year and investments to support growth initiatives, are concerning the company. Also, improving safety features in vehicles will likely impact Copart’s future earnings negatively." (2/4/2019)
