2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

Guru Investment Theses on LKQ Corp

David Rolfe Comments on LKQ Corp - Apr 15, 2016

LKQ Corp (NASDAQ:LKQ)

During the quarter, LKQ continued to execute on its mid-single digit organic growth plus M&A strategy. In addition, the Company provided a convincing case for its continued execution at their first-ever Investor Day. The Company also announced the acquisition of Pittsburgh Glass Works for $635 million in enterprise value and finalized the acquisition of the RHIAG group of Italy.

LKQ is both the largest distributor of aftermarket collision parts in North America and the largest distributor of mechanical aftermarket parts in Europe. We think scale is critically important to most distribution businesses, and LKQ is no exception. In North America, LKQ’s primary customers are collision repair shops that often participate in volume programs organized by casualty insurers looking for low-cost but high-quality repair parts. These collision repair shops must turn their repair jobs over relatively quickly or risk losing out on volume business. As such, LKQ’s unmatched product availability and fulfillment rates are differentiators in the eyes of the Company’s customers, while cost -conscious insurers provide another impetus for low -cost, aftermarket collision parts demand, so we expect LKQ’s profitability to reflect the return on the inventory and distribution capital expenditure risks that LKQ takes on behalf of its customers.

LKQ’s organic revenue growth consists of increasing the penetration of after-market parts to collision and mechanical repair shops, as well as increasing route density. Increasing this “base” off which LKQ can organically grow, is their long-held approach of acquiring several under-scale competitors per year. As we have seen over the past few years, LKQ has very little in the way of rival competition, and the industry is mature, so aside from integration risks, LKQ’s accretive growth from acquisition appears to be repeatable. While LKQ contributed to our outperform ance during the quarter, we continue to think that LKQ’s growth prospects are under-appreciated by investors.

From David Rolfe (Trades, Portfolio)'s Wedgewood Partners 1st Quarter 2016 Client Letter.

Meridian Funds Comments on LKQ Corp - Jun 19, 2014

LKQ Corp. (LKQ) was the Fund’s top contributor in the six-month period ending December 31, 2013. The company is a leading distributor of alternative collision repair parts in a market estimated to be $59 billion. During the period, LKQ reported strong second quarter earnings growth and announced the acquisition of Keystone Automotive Operations, which benefited performance. While we continue to believe that LKQ has further growth potential in a large fragmented market, we trimmed the stock meaningfully in the period as it approached our price target.

LKQ Corp was established in 1998. The Company provides replacement parts, components and systems needed to repair cars and trucks. Buyers of vehicle replacement products have the option to purchase from five sources: new products produced by original equipment manufacturers, commonly known as OEM products; new products produced by companies other than the OEMs, referred to as aftermarket products; recycled products obtained from salvage vehicles; used products that have been refurbished; and used products that have been remanufactured. It distributes products to collision and mechanical repair shops, including aftermarket collision and mechanical products, recycled collision and mechanical products, refurbished collision products such as wheels, bumper covers and lights, and remanufactured engines. The Company operates self-service retail facilities across the U.S. that sells recycled automotive products. The Company has three operating segments: Wholesale - North America; Wholesale - Europe; and Self Service. The Company's wholesale automobile product operations in North America are organized by geographic regions serving the U.S. and Canada that sell all four product types - aftermarket, recycled, refurbished and remanufactured parts to collision and mechanical automobile repair businesses. The Company's recycled products include engines, transmissions, door assemblies, sheet metal products such as trunk lids, fenders and hoods, lights and bumper assemblies. The Company's wholesale recycled product operations generate scrap metal and other materials that it sells to recyclers. It also extracts and sells the precious metals contained in certain of its salvage parts such as catalytic converters. The Company's self-service retail operations sell parts from older cars and light-duty trucks directly to consumers. The Company considers all suppliers of vehicle collision and mechanical products to be competitors, including aftermarket suppliers, recycling businesses, refurbishing operations, parts re-manufacturers, OEMs and internet-based suppliers.
