Read How Needham Rates CarMax Post Investor Day
  • Needham analyst Chris Pierce has reiterated the Hold rating on CarMax Inc KMX after the conclusion of the company’s investor day.
  • The analyst is optimistic about CarMax’s ability to take an additional share in the used vehicle market, potentially at a faster pace as the industry shifts from offline to online.
  • Pierce believes the company’s omnichannel efforts are starting to bear fruit, and it can deliver tools on par with digitally native peers.
  • CarMax sees heightened competition from digitally native operators and bulked-up franchise dealers post industry consolidation. However, the company is absorbing the higher advertising and technology expenses associated with adopting an omni-channel operating model.
  • Price Action: KMX shares are trading lower by 2.14% at $88.66 on the last check Thursday.
