What are Wall Street analysts saying about Copart stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Copart stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "In fourth-quarter fiscal 2018, though Copart reported an earnings miss, it improved year over. During the quarter, revenues came in higher than both the Zacks Consensus Estimate and the prior year quarter figure, aided by favorable currency effects. However, rising general and administrative expenses, mainly accruing on account of acquisitions, is a concern before the company. Also, improving safety features in vehicles will likely have a negative impact on Copart’s future earnings. However, Copart is expanding its network of facilities to manage inflating volumes. In September, the company added its second location in Germany and seventh hub in Brazil. These new locations will help the company to cater to important buyer base." (9/21/2018)
