By David Diaz

Below are the three companies in the Automotive Retail industry with the highest Price to Last Quarter Annualized (LQA) Sales ratios. Price/LQA Sales is a valuable metric used to compare comparable companies using the most recent sales data on an annualized basis. Generally, the lower the ratio, the more undervalued the company.

O'Reilly Automotive ranks highest with a price to last quarter annualized sales ratio of 3.74. AutoZone is next with a price to last quarter annualized sales ratio of 2.60. Monro Muffler ranks third highest with a price to last quarter annualized sales ratio of 2.19.

Advance Auto Parts follows with a price to last quarter annualized sales ratio of 1.26, and Carmax rounds out the top five with a price to last quarter annualized sales ratio of 0.69.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of Carmax on June 10th, 2016 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $50.14.
