Medallion Financial higher after earnings, boosted buyback


Alongside Q2 earnings, Medallion Financial (TAXI +3.1%) brings the size of its repurchase program to $20M vs. the $6M currently remaining. At the current stock price, the buyback would be good for about 1.7M shares, or nearly 7% of the float.

    Another solid quarter for TAXI. They decided to buy back shares while the stock price is low. Another great business decision and another reason I am long TAXI.

    The speed at which they have put capital to work is impressive. If they hadn't they could have just bought back the shares they recently sold for $16+ for $11 and change but their net interest margin is impressive.

     

    Uber is overrated and TAXI is well protected from any decline in medallion price. I am looking forward to buying more and the inevitable short squeeze.

     

    Does anyone know if the snafu about BDCs being allowed in the Russel 2000 index is going to be fixed? That would surely set off a short squeeze.
