    Please take a look at ticker ILUS as well - ILUS International. Drones, EVs, UAVs, Urban Mining and patented firefighting / safety technology. ILUS is profitable in their first year and uplisting. They have achieved a year over year revenue increase of 482%. ILUS has completed 8 acquisitiions in the last 16 months. One of the more notable is that of Vira Drones with an estimated billion dollar valuation. They have also acquired Wikisoft, ticker WSFT. Please see Yahoo Finance for more details ans news. Undervalued and worth a look.

    Just bought a few thousand shares on Thursday at $26.21. My one year goal is $34-35. The slowing of the company's growth rate to 8-10% per year appears priced in. Also, a slowing economy means fewer cars being sold....and more older cars on the road likely to be needing repairs.

    LKQ is a good recession stock, when times become difficult, new car sales shift to repairing used ones .... AND
    Tariffs are adding to new car prices. BUY this stock on any drop

    This stock went up over 70% for the year and just crushed earnings. PE is only 18. Upped guidance. It should be much higher. Guess it’s not sexy.

    After this German deal is set revenues per share will be about $38, up from about $31.55 and price about $50. to $58 IMHO.

    Still .55 x 4 x18=$39.60... LKQ is way too far beat up on this at $30s..for a stock that could be $50 just down the pike.

    Why would a company like this get hammered so bad? less driving so l fewer accidents and fewer repairs until we can move about freely? It's now trading at book value with a current ratio of 2. I'm adding to my position!

    TWST: Did you want to mention one final company?

    Mr. Villere: There’s another business called LKQ (NASDAQ:LKQ). It’s a common term for like, kind and quality. They’re basically supplying refurbished and recycled auto parts to mostly body shops that are the same as new or OEM parts, but they’re about 20% to 50% cheaper. They’ve been under a little bit of pressure. They had a weaker quarter. And I think that creates the opportunity.

    They’re just finalizing an acquisition of something called Stahlgruber, which is the leading aftermarket parts distributor in Germany. And at their most recent analyst day, they talked about trying to improve margins, and they think they can improve their EBITDA margins about 500 basis points over the next 36 months. It also trades much cheaper than its peer group — down at almost 13 times numbers when you look at some of their peers that trade closer to 18 to 19 times.

    It’s just a key part of an insurance company’s business, and they are able to replace and fix your car with an exact like-in-kind part, but a much, much cheaper part, so one that I think is going to still work out well. And it is still very cheap.

    Thoughts on this earnings call. Gm strike still has stuff on delay, huge car exchange with all these new car deals (recondition business on trades) and parts plant closures. Seems used parts are in demand. Up up
