In the first of many big board penny stocks we will be covering as the summer months approach, U.S. Auto Parts Network, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRTS) is looking like a superb place to park some unneeded cash. PRTS stock, upgraded today to a “buy” by the Wall Street analysts at Roth Capital, is shedding some of its gains after filing their Q for the three months ended March 30 yesterday. With the approaching season for shade tree mechanics to be doing auto repairs, there couldn’t be a better time for this low-float big boarder to see a change in direction.

Many of our followers from last summer know why many of these big board penny stocks we cover should be immediate additions to your long-play watchlists. Two superb examples from last year were Peregrine Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: PPHM) which had a run worth over 1,200% and Quiksilver, Inc. (NYSE: ZQK) which is up 190% after setting a new 52 week high today.
U.S. Auto Parts Network just reported their Q1 yesterday and it looks like its going to be a strong summer for the after market parts supplier. Cash on hand increased from $ 1.03 million at the end of 2012 to nearly $1.30 million due mainly to a decrease in inventory.
Although total assets declined to $81.347 million from $88.877 million during the three months ended March 30, 2013, both current and total liabilities declined by roughly $10 million to $49.39 million and $51.52 million, respectively from $59.54 million and $61.23 million, respectively, at the end of 2012.
As President and CEO of U.S. Auto Parts Network, Shane Evangelist, pointed out in the Company’s earnings call, they are expected to have the 2 strongest Auto Parts e-commerce brands in the marketplace after consolidating certain websites operated by the parts supplier. A strong source of future revenues is expected to come from the Company’s marketing efforts for AutoMD.
With AutoMD already having launched AutoMD Insta-Quotes in 3 markets; Long Island, New York, Bakersfield, California; and Spokane, Washington; and plan to roll out to Phoenix and DC this quarter, U.S. Auto Parts Network should be well positioned to thrive in the do-it-for-me market.
With net sales of $304 million during the 12 months ended December 30, 2012 coming in lower by $23.1 million, 7%, compared to fiscal year 2011, and net sales for Q1, 2013 coming in $65.4 million versus $87.4 million for Q1, 2012, a decrease of 25.2%, PRTS stock is about as low as it’s gonna get and should be a great addition to the “buy in May and go away” list.

PRTS is a great Nasdaq listed penny stock to add to the watch list, especially for those who can’t afford to be in front of a Level II screen each and every day while the BBQ grills are heating up. PRTS stock should be a wonderful addition for long traders and should see a strong boost when Q2 and Q3 earnings are reported.
