  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "FirstCash Inc. is an operator of pawn stores. The company focuses on serving cash and credit constrained consumers through its retail pawn locations, which buy and sell jewelry, consumer electronics, power tools, household appliances, sporting goods, musical instruments and other merchandise.

  • 2. Wedbush analysts commented, "FCFS has held up significantly better than we expected. We and investors are clearly focused on the long-term view that the 2017 outlook incorporates a number of items that bode well for the company's long term growth and profitability. It is worth noting that the headwinds facing the company are tied to the US, where the small dollar alternative loan market is generally seeing tepid to no growth, and steps are being taken to enhance the profitability of the acquired Cash America stores. The company has reactivated its buyback program and we would expect it to be an aggressive buyer of its own stock below the $40 mark." (2/3/2017)
