Morningstar | Great Execution by Lithia's Management Leads to a Record 2Q

Lithia reported a record second quarter, but we see nothing to merit changing in our thesis or fair value estimate. We continue to see the company's growth runway as bright, with good balance sheet health and a robust acquisition pipeline. Management talked on the call about U.S. acquisitions being the priority due to so many opportunities, thus we expect Lithia to remain U.S. exclusive for a while. Credit line capacity is $218 million and management estimates its $329 million of unencumbered real estate could provide $247 million of further liquidity, if needed. We don't expect Lithia to use ...

Morningstar | Lithia Has Record 1Q Revenue and EPS Despite New-Vehicle Slowdown

Lithia Motors' continued drive to improve operations at all the stores it's acquired over the years showed good momentum in first-quarter 2019, with adjusted diluted EPS rising 17.9% year over year to $2.44, easily beating consensus of $2.16.

Morningstar | Lithia Continues to Grow Earnings Rapidly Via Acquisitions

Lithia Motors' business model is strong because it is the only large publicly traded dealer dedicated to rural markets. These markets are unattractive to the larger public dealers, as their management teams have no interest in small cities and they have import and luxury brand mixes more favorable to suburban markets. Lithia has taken its approach throughout small markets in the Western U.S. The Anchorage, Alaska, area is a good example of the model in action: It has three Chevrolet stores, and Lithia owns two of them plus the only Chevrolet store in Fairbanks. Nationwide, the majority of Lith...
