    I'd say fast talking would be a benefit when pushing this stock. :D

    To compare ZIP to HD is a joke. Did HD have bigger long established competitors in the same business when they were building their company? What sort of profits did they have?

    Seattle just approved Cars2Go. The competition from Enterprise, Hertz, Avis and C2G is just getting started, not to mention U-Haul and the peer-to-peer companies.

    ZIP lost most of their prime parking in D.C. when they were put up for bid. C2G gave back the spots when they bought free parking for their customers throughout D.C. in the what they call the home area.

    I would guess that the cheap or free parking ZIP negotiated in their "public private partnerships" are going away.

    The competitors are lowering or dropping the membership fees, which accounts for most if not all of ZIP's meager profits. How long will customers of ZIP pay the higher fees when alternatives like C2G, HOD, WeCar, and U-Car are available.

    The majors may not be as agile as ZIP and ZIP may have a cool factor right now but how long will it last? MySpace used to be cool.

    ZIP is best looked at as a potential buy-out takeover candidate. They just don't have the resources to expand unless they show much. much bigger profits and those profits would be like honey for the competitor flies.

    I only watched the video once, but I recommend you have that elevator checked out... You pressed the "down" button to call it, but once you were inside, the floor number shown inside the elevator went UP, from 3 to 4. Then, you got off on the 3rd floor. The key to a successful elevator pitch isn't so much the brevity itself, but that the length matches the length of the elevator ride. The pitch itself? As a Zipster and owner, I approve that message, and (to echo the previous commenter), a great point about being able to know (and tell) your thesis for your stock.
