  • Since my previous article, O'Reilly Automotive has outperformed the market by an impressive margin, as it has rallied 58% whereas the S&P 500 has declined 9%.
  • Due to its steep rally, O'Reilly Automotive stock has become somewhat richly valued.
  • However, the fast growth of O'Reilly Automotive is likely to compensate patient investors in the long run, as it is likely to offset the effect of the initial premium valuation.

I am also the author of 2 mathematics books ("Arithmetic calculations without a calculator" and "Word Problems") and perform almost all the calculations in my mind, without a calculator, making it easier to make immediate investing decisions among many alternatives.

Why doesn’t O’Reilly pay a dividend with the great consistency of its sales and earnings growth?

I actually have a hard time believing that, even with the transition to electric, that there won't be auto parts in the future. There might be less. But the idea that there are just no parts to electric vehicles is silly.
Auto parts companies will have over 20 years of selling parts , not 10 , there will likely be over 250m gas vehicles on the road in 20 years. Long ORLY since $36
@Gadzman_33 speaking of automobiles do you drive by looking in rear view mirror?
@mmarek evans The facts are the facts , and states are pushing back against banning gas powered vehicles by 2035 , that would kill our economy, EVs are NOT green , it's all smoke and mirrors by greenpeace ! I've yet to see electric heavy equipment digging up the EV metals ??
@Gadzman_33 good comment
