Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about LKQ stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "In second-quarter 2018, LKQ Corp’s earnings per share and revenues surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate. Also, both improved year over year. In the first-half 2018, the Parts and services segment of the company performed strongly. The company has been growing its footprint through organic expansion and acquisitions. In May 2017, the company completed the acquisition of German-based Stahlgruber, thus, strengthening its position in Europe. Also, its focus on the aftermarket defends the company from cyclical nature of the automotive industry. However, continuous rise in Selling, General and Administrative expenses (SG&A) is a serious concern for the company. Also, excess inventory might affect the short-term liquidity of the company in periods of low sales. In the past six months, shares of LKQ Corp. have underperformed the industry it belongs to."
