••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

Guru Investment Theses on AutoNation Inc

Bill Nygren Comments on AutoNation - Jan 10, 2017

AutoNation (NYSE:AN) is the largest automotive retailer in the U.S. The company owns and operates 371 new vehicle franchises through 261 stores, located predominantly in major metropolitan markets. The stock was down 18% in 2016 because investors were disappointed by the company’s earnings and were fearful that the auto cycle had reached its peak. The soft earnings were caused by brand-building investments, disruptions from a Takata airbag recall and poor performance in Texas. We are confident that these are short-term setbacks and that AutoNation will be able to rebound. In our view, the brand and franchise remain strong, and the company’s CEO, Mike Jackson, is a proven operator and superb capital allocator. Since Jackson became CEO in 1999, he has opportunistically used share repurchases to reduce the share base by 75%, contributing to a total return to shareholders of 346% (versus 144% for the S&P 500). We believe that paying 11x depressed earnings for an industry leader with such a strong track record is a compelling investment.

Arena Minerals Inc. Enters Into Agreement With Rouge Resources Ltd. on Sale of Pampas El Penon Project, Chile

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Jun 15, 2016) - Arena Minerals Inc., (TSX VENTURE:AN) (the "Company") has entered into a binding letter of intent with Rouge Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:ROU) ("Rouge") for the disposition of the Pampas el Peñon gold project in Chile. Arena's interest consists of two option agreements (the "Option Agreements") with Sociedad Química Y Minera de Chile S.A. ("SQM"). In exchange for transferring its interest in the Option Agreements to Rouge, Arena will receive consideration of 8,650,000 common shares of Rouge. Rouge will also assume all of Arena's outstanding commitments under the Option Agreements, which include $750,000 in cash payments and an expenditure commitment on the project of $1,830,000, both due by July 27, 2017. "We are very pleased to enter into this transaction with Rouge. The disposition of Arena's interest in Pampas el Peñon is consistent with Arena's prospector generator model of leveraging partners' capital to advance projects while still generating economic benefit for Arena shareholders. This is the fourth transaction Arena has entered into with outside partners. The focus for Arena is the Atacama copper property, and the transaction with Rouge will enhance that focus while creating value," said William Randall CEO of Arena. The Pampas El Peñon property consists of 13 mining claims totaling 3,400 hectares located approximately 130 kilometres southeast of Antofagasta, Chile. The property consists of two separate blocks, lying immediately to the west and north of Yamana Gold's Pampa Augusta Victoria mine complex that forms part of El Penon mine complex. El Peñon mine began production in 1999 and has an established history of exploration success. The mine produced 227,000 ounces of gold and 7.7 million ounces of silver in 2015 with reported cash costs of US$621 and $8.38 an ounce respectively (Yamana Gold 2015 Annual Report). Over $1,000,000 has been spent on the Pampas el Peñon property by Arena and SQM, with most of the work completed consisting of mapping, sampling, trenching and limited near-surface drilling designed to define the location of epithermal gold-silver veins with characteristics similar to those in the neighbouring Pampa Augusta Victoria complex. The letter of intent with Rouge is legally binding but is subject to completion of certain conditions, including the closing of a private placement financing by Rouge for gross proceeds of not less than $2.5 million, completion of due diligence by Rouge for period of up to 60 days, entering into of a definitive agreement and stock exchange approval. The technical and scientific aspects of this news release have been reviewed and approved by Mr. Vernon Arseneau, P.Geo, who is a qualified person pursuant to NI 43-101. As the Vice President of Exploration of the Company, Mr. Arseneau is not considered independent. About Arena Minerals Arena Minerals is a prospect generator that has two properties under option covering approximately 95,400 hectares within the Antofagasta region of Chile. The properties are at low altitudes, within producing mining camps in infrastructure rich areas. The Company's flagship asset is the Atacama Copper Property, consisting of 92,000 hectares, following a contractual land reduction on July 27, 2015, of essentially undrilled ground in the heart of Chile's premier copper mining district. Currently, approximately 85% of the Atacama Copper Property is under option to third parties. Pursuant to option agreements entered into between Arena and the parties B2Gold Corp, Japan Oil, Gas and Minerals National Corporation and Teck Resources Chile Limitada, each have the right to earn into 60% of the respective land holdings within the property, by collectively spending over $60 million in exploration expenditures, amongst certain other commitments. In addition the Company has the Pampas El Peñon project, comprising a total of 3,400 hectares which is less than 1 km from Yamana's Agusta Victoria project which forms part of the El Peñon mine complex. The Pampas El Peñon and Atacama Copper properties comprise Arena Minerals highly prospective copper and gold properties within an active mining region.
