Analyst John Hecht commented, "CRMT reported F2Q17 EPS of $0.62, beating both our $0.54 and the Street's $0.55 estimates. Revenues of $133M beat our $124M forecast while gross margin improved to 41.4% - a 220+bps improvement YoY. Credit metrics also showed continued stabilization as NCOs of 7.7% declined 10 bps YoY. We are modestly increasing our PT as a result of strong top-line trends. Reiterate Hold."
