    By Dan Moskowitz - August 15, 2013 | Tickers: CAR, HTZ, URI

    Highly-leveraged companies face steep challenges if the economy falters, because debt usually becomes more expensive and impedes growth potential. Even if that’s not the case, perception plays a big role. When the broader market looks as though it might be approaching bear territory, investors want nothing to do with highly-leveraged companies. In these situations, there will be a flight to safety, such as large companies that have strong balance more »

  • The Rental Business Beats Owning

    By Mark Yagalla - June 29, 2013 | Tickers: CAR, HTZ, URI

    What I like about the rental business is that there aren't a lot of competitors.

In the past decade, the number of competitors has gone from six to three as the industry consolidated.

    By Zain Abbas - June 17, 2013 | Tickers: UHAL, CAR, HTZ
