Shares of Pep Boys - Manny, Moe & Jack (NYSE: PBY) have spiked lower by 4.2 percent to $11.46 after the company reported fourth quarter 2013 results.

“While retail tire pricing has recently stabilized, prices are still below last year's level, which has and is expected to continue to negatively impact top line sales results through the second quarter of 2014. We are also growing our service footprint, adding 30 Service & Tire Centers during fiscal 2014. These new Service & Tire Centers showcase the welcoming exterior curb appeal and comfortable customer lounge of our new ‘Road Ahead' format,” said President and Chief Executive Officer, Mike Odell.
