  • 2. Oppenheimer Holdings Inc. analysts commented, "innovative omni-channel business" remains unchanged despite the downgrade, Nagel commented in his note. The company's "upbeat, longer term outlook" also remains unchanged but the stock is now vulnerable to even the most "modest changes" in underlying fundamentals."We often disagree with the myriad bearish theories that weigh on KMX, but nonetheless recognize the susceptibility of shares to even modest, near-term fundamental challenges," the analyst wrote.However, there are nevertheless a few reasons for investors to be concerned with the auto company, Nagel acknowledged. The Street is forecasting the company to report upwards of a low- to mid-single-digit used unit comp gain in its fourth quarter, which is above the analyst's own estimate of flat to plus 2 percent.
