On CAPS, 94% of the 954 members who have rated CarMax believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those bulls, fellow Fool Jason Moser (TMFJMo), succinctly summed up the CarMax outperform case for our community: "I gave this one the thumbs up on Investor Beat. ... Given the continued rise in the average price of a new car along with the fact that consumers are stringing out loans for 8 years and longer, I think this plays right into CarMax's advantage."
