Bill Nash, president and chief executive officer of CarMax, said this about the KMX stock earnings:
“We accomplished a lot this quarter, despite the challenges the pandemic posed. We continued our omni-channel rollout and launched new initiatives, such as contactless curbside pickup, a temporary extension of our 90-day warranty and CAF payment assistance to meet the near-term needs of our customers; we introduced social distancing and enhanced sanitation procedures; and we shifted our entire wholesale business from in-person to online auctions. In addition, we continued to keep our appraisal lanes open where possible for customers who wanted or needed to sell their cars.”
The company does not mention any sort of guidance for fiscal 2021. That said, we know what Wall Street is expecting. Analysts are looking for EPS of $2.69 on revenue of $16.65 billion for the year.
