Auto parts retailer. Trading at about 13X earnings. There was a scare about 2 months ago when Amazon (AMZN-Q) decided they wanted to be in this space. Last quarter results were weak due to milder weather and some delay in tax refunds. Trading at 13X earnings with a 6% free cash flow yield. They can provide services Amazon can’t, such as instructional videos, as well as lending tools and disposing of used oil. (Analysts’ price target is $737.50.)

(Top Short Sept 21/07. Up 14% on this Short.) Current conditions will make it difficult for people to keep on driving so will have fewer need for auto repairs. It remains an excellent Short.
