Nomura Securities on U.S. Specialty Consumer Lenders: Q2 Earnings Wrap

Analyst, Bill Carcache, said, "2Q12 Earnings Wrap: Pawn lending showed signs of a slowdown during the quarter, with US centric names experiencing weaker growth in loans and service charges. This quarter all three names reported weak scrap sales results and moderately disappointing retail sales results. In scrap, CSH reported a significant decline in margins (scrap margins declined 750bps YoY). The company appears to be offering higher LTV loans relative to EZPW. EZPW lowered its LTVs in response to softer gold prices, while we believe CSH has maintained relatively elevated LTVs in an effort to drive loan demand. Online lending posted impressive growth, while brick-and-mortar operations lagged."
