In this segment: Earlier this week, Avis Budget Group (NASDAQ:CAR) announced it would be buying Zipcar (UNKNOWN:ZIP.DL2), which has Zipcar stock up 50%. The guys discuss how, while there is still a lot of uncertainty around the car-sharing industry, which makes it difficult to tell whether Avis got an excellent deal on this buy or not, they feel it was a good buy that should make Avis' competition concerned.
