CarMax, Inc. (KMX) 🚘
KMX finances and sells vehicles, with a focus on used cars. Used cars have gotten lots of attention recently due to their increases in price. This increase in price can be due to the shortage of new cars. Vehicles are everywhere we look and most likely, you drive one to get to wherever you need to go. That is unless you use a bike. By the look of gas prices now, having a bike does not seem like a bad idea. Cars are always in need and with that in mind, KMX has the ability to profit off of these sales. Let's buckle in and check out their fundamentals 🔍.

We can see that KMX has had a gradual upwards trend over time. KMX did have some trouble with their recent annual top-line revenue, but this could've been due to the pandemic. In addition, we see that KMX has delivered consistent beats during their last 4 earnings. Overall, not too bad, but we've seen better companies.
