What are analysts saying about Copart stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Copart stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Copart is exposed to foreign currency fluctuations as it has operations in various international markets. Also, the company is incurring higher selling, general and administrative (“SGA”) expenses. Improving safety features in vehicles will likely have a negative impact on Copart’s future earnings. As safety features improve, the accident rate and hence, supply of salvage vehicles is expected to reduce. Moreover, the rapid progress in the development of driverless cars is a looming threat in the long run." (8/2/2017)
  • 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "After the close, NFLX reported slightly weaker than expected 1Q:17 paid net adds and slightly stronger than expected 2Q net-add guidance. In our view, the near-term story is unchanged. The shift in net adds to 2Q reflects content timing vs. a material change in NFLX’s growth trajectory. Management reiterated its 7% operating margin target for 2017, although 2Q margins will contract before expanding again in 2H:17. Domestic ASP increased on a full quarter of ungrandfathered pricing and 4K UHD adoption, while international pricing remained relatively flat." (4/18/2017)
