Penske Automotive Group (NYSE: PAG), a transportation services company that operates automotive and commercial truck dealerships, saw its stock rise by about 18% over the last month. The increase is likely driven by Penske’s Q3 results, which saw it report record revenues of almost $6 billion. Revenues were ~$80 million ahead of consensus and up by about 5.5% year-over-year. The growth is being driven by the company’s U.S. retail automotive businesses and its North American commercial truck dealership operations.
