Confident Investor comments: At this time, I think that a Confident Investor can cautiously invest in MarineMax Inc as long as the price is correct and the indicators that I describe in my book The Confident Investor are favorable. Most of the fundamentals of this company are good but there are some concerns. Due to those concerns and the fact that the company barely made it to Fair, I am removing MarineMax from my Watch List as there are better investment opportunities on the market.
